English term or phrase: motor ability
The main result, with regard to the levels of physical fitness and motor ability of children at the nursery schools we supported in the first year of their participation, showed that the level of physical fitness and motor ability of the children at the nursery schools after analyzing the average of the three items as a whole 78% for boys and 89% for girls were about the same as the reference value.

I think athletic performance is better than motor ability. Is that so?
Thank you for your advice!!
