The article presents the results of the studies aimed at comparative analysis of the morphofunctional indicators of 7-8 year old volleyball players with different rates of biological maturation. The study was conducted with the participation of 148 young volleyball players (60 boys, 88 girls, and age 7-8 years). The discrepancy between the calendar and biological ages was revealed in the significant part of children involved in the sports and recreation phase in volleyball; in particular, more than 50% of children have reduced or accelerated rates of biological maturation. The quantitative values of the indicators of the morphofunctional status of novice athletes with different rates of biological maturation are determined. Reliably significant differences were found between indicators characterizing the physical development and functional state of 7-8 year old volleyball players with different levels of biological maturity. The results obtained indicate the need for the differentiated approach in the process of biomedical control and assessment of physical fitness, dosing of physical activity.
