The achievement of perfection in the execution of the motor skill is connected with the mastery of the mental skill, since it precedes it in execution. It has become important to carry out an analytical study to find out the extent of the relationship between these skills, relying on accurate scientific tests using equipment made and developed for this purpose. As well as a special simulator to measure the most important mental skills required by football players, such as concentration, speed of response, and decision-making, in order to achieve the best results and a study with a high level of honesty and stability. As well as a special simulator to measure the most important mental skills required by football players, such as concentration, speed of response, and decision-making, in order to achieve the best results and a study with a high level of honesty and stability. For juniors, the research sample included (240) players from football academies and football schools in the province of Babylon. Electronic devices were created to test mental skills (attention focus, response speed, decision-making) and motor skills (dribbling, scoring, receiving and passing). Among the conclusions of the study is that there is an insignificant correlation between the mental and motor skills of young players because the training age for them is short and they have not been able to achieve the mechanism and fixation of the ability and overcome the internal and external influences.
Recommendations include the interest of coaches in the development of mental skills, which in turn contributes to the development of motor skills through specific exercises for each skill to achieve optimal performance or performance perfection.
