To achieve this goal , the study was conducted on a random sample of 190,174 male and female studentsrespectively in four Palestinian universities ( Al-Najah university ,Khadouri university , Al-Quds Open university and  Arab American university – Jenin ).

The tool of the study consists of a number of physical skill examinations that focus on flexibility , agility , speed , muscular strength, fortitude and  precision ,  The data was collected and analysed using the program (spss). 

The study finds that the students, level in both physical and tactical skill examinations was average. Physical fitness tests for male and female students were founded on standard levels in which the results were illustrated as: flexibility (bending the trunk of the body) , agility (hurdle zigzag race ) , speed ( 30m race ) , fortitude (1500m race), precision ( aiming by the hand at the interlocked circle).
