Тhe purpose of the study is to identify the interconnection between self-esteem of girls at the age of 13 and the development rate of physical qualities (agility and speed). To develop and verify experimentally the effectiveness of the methods for the formation of self-esteem and to discover its influence on the development of physical condition. The experiment involved 13-year-old female students of the standard training group (healthy school students) who study at general secondary school. The number of respondents was 97 schoolgirls (48 girls in the control group and 49 girls in the experimental group).Under the influence of the original methods, the indices of self-esteem in the experimental group increased by an average of 23,2 points compared to the initial data (t = 5,48; P≤0,001), which corresponds to a high level and a level above average; the result of agility improved by 1,2 sec (t = 2,14; P≤0,05-0,01), which is above average; the result of the speed level — by 0,8 sec (t = 1,99; P≤0,05), which corresponds to a sufficient level. In the experimental group, a positive correlation was observed between the state of self-esteem and the development rate of agility and speed (at the level of a mean correlation, r = 0,55), and between the development rate of agility and speed (r = 0,62). In the control group, these indices are less noticeable and are characterized by a weak correlation dependence at the level of r = 0,25-0,30.
