Rapid change of game situations on the site leads to urgent transformation of psychophysiological states (PFS) of players. Therefore, for management of state of athletes the optimal selection of informative and reliable indicators, objectively characterizing these states becomes the main thing. However, focusing only on determining PFS parameters that have dominant impact on the gaming performance cannot be sufficient. It is necessary to determine the existence of mutually agreed relationships between the parameters used for PFS evaluation. As a result of the comparative analysis within the correlated parameters of PFS, it is possible to optimize the quantitative composition of the analyzed indicators by means of the logistical justification, maintaining the reliability and objectivity of the obtained information, without rejecting the legality of using a large amount of data. Dynamics of correlations of PFS indicators depending on the qualification of players have been revealed. Among the athletes of the second category the dominance of the central signs has much more influence on their body than among the Masters of sports. The authors have found the significant correlation connections, showing that players of high qualification have fewer in psychophysiological state, there is no pronounced dominance of the single parameter; there is close correlation between «peripheral» parameters. Based on the correlation graphs presented in the work, indicating the existence of parameters with multiple connections, it is assumed to the expediency to reduce the number of used parameters for diagnostics of psychophysiological state of athletes in game sports.
