  Abstract:  Background. Cognitive control processes include a broad class of mental operations including goal or context representation and maintenance, and strategic processes such as attention allocation and stimulus-response mapping. Cognitive control is associated with a wide range of processes and is not restricted to a particular cognitive domain. Aims. The aims for this research are the following: 1. Applying the MGM-15 Jumping Carpet test at the beginning and at the end of the research, 2. Apply a practical basketball passing speed test under different conditions;. Methods. The methods used: 1. the MGM-15 Jumping Carpet Test(Hardware and Software), 2.Basketball passing test under different conditions. Results. The results span at the initial test between the values of 0.13 and 0.3 for the Repetition Speed Coefficient. For the final test the values for the same coefficient span between 0.23 and 0.4. Conclusions. The data collected suggests that the cognitive control over motoric actions is relatively weak and undeveloped at this age; due to the fact that the more the environment changed the further the values for the speed tests went.
