Abstract

In the first half of February 2020, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) assigned the definitive name to the new coronavirus: "severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus2" (SARS- CoV-2). On February 11, 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that the respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus would have been called COVID-19. The pandemic has changed the lifestyle and the routines of Italians belonging to all age groups. A succession of ministerial decrees has drastically reduced the opportunities for organised physical activity, including grassroots sport for children and adolescents. The primary purpose of this article is a review of contemporary literature on the empirical evidence that supports the importance of adequately promoting motor skills in children. The second objective is to identify an operational mode of adapting the motor game that on the one hand, would allow for opportunities to socialise, and on the other hand, would make it possible to practice and exercise the fundamental motor skills (FMS) which consider the need of guaranteeing conditions for health protection and that limit the risk of epidemiological contagion.
