Summary/Abstract: This paper analyzes the relations between two chosen research issues: motor behaviour and socio-economic environment of children aged 7–11. In this research were used the information of the respondents from I to IV grade of primary schools in Novi Sad. The sample group consisted of 361 respondents (190 boys and 171 girls). Based on these results, the authors conclude that the opportunities and threats of socio-economic environment that children grow up in, affect their participation in a physical activity. The most important factor of socio-economic status, which determines the participation of children in a physical activity, is sport engagement of their parents.
