A total of 29 variables were used in the research. For this purpose, samples of 15 variables for the evaluation of anthropometric dimensions, 10 variables for the evaluation of general motoric skills, as well as 4 variables for the evaluation of specific motoric skills were used. Significant correlations are presented between the body height variable and seven other variables at a very high probability level. Body height has achieved a very high correlation with leg length r = .77, which means that body height significantly affects the length of the limbs. Also the length of the arm has achieved a high correlation with the height of the body r = .53, which is considered an important feature in swimmers. Body height has also shown a correlation with the circumference measured in the research, especially with that of the chest r = .56, this correlation has been observed by other researchers, in previous research from the sport of swimming. Thigh circumference and arm circumference have achieved a high and significant correlation r = .65, which indicates the proportional limb development in young swimmers. Unlike anthropometric ambiance, the basic motoric ambiance has only four statistically significant correlations. The variables of hand tapping and sanding long jump have achieved a correlation r = .498 with 99% probability level. Also, the upper limbs tapping variable shows a statistically significant correlation with the lower limbs tapping variable r = 33 as well as the dynamometer variable r = 35 at the 95% probability level. This implies that the explosive force of the lower limbs to a considerable extent exhibits connection with tapping as the main characteristic of alternating limb movements, a phenomenon extremely important in the sport of swimming. A very high correlation is being noted at the 99% probability level in all variables of the short swimming disciplines. The highest correlation, r = 87, was shown between the variables 50 meters freestyle and that of 50 meters breaststroke. Regarding the correlation of sports motoric variables with anthropometric ones, it is noticed that the flexibility test variable, the flamingo test, has a special meaning in almost all specific motoric variables. It shows a high correlation coefficient r = 45 with the breaststroke variable, r = 45 with the freestyle variable and r = 40 with the backstroke variable, all at the 99% probability level, while with the butterfly variable it showed a correlation at the 95% probability level at r = 35.
