Curriculum is a comprehensive plan for an educational training program course to offer new improved work force to fulfill the rising needs of a dynamic society. The physical education curriculum framework is structured to ensure that students can enjoy an open, flexible and balanced program featuring a variety of movement experiences. Biomotor ability refers to the capacity of an individual that forms a foundation for performing a number of skills and hence, motor fitness is the final criterion through which all other elements of physical fitness or total fitness are seen and measured in man. Since these abilities affect how the body moves they are given the name "biomotor abilities”. Dexterous refers to the skill and grace in physical movement, especially in the use of the hands; ‘adroitness’. In other words, ability to manipulate fine objects with the hands. Handedness is the preferred use of the right hand, the left hand, or one or the other depending on the task. The purpose of the study was to find out the impact of model physical education curriculum on selected coordination and balance of dexterous preadolescents. For that purpose 40 right handed dominance preadolescent students from Dream land educational institute Anantnag Jammu and Kashmir India were taken as subjects. The age ranges between 10-13 years. The subjects were divided into two groups (n=20), the experimental group and control group. The model physical education curriculum was implemented on the experimental group. The curriculum contains three parts A (the physical exercises), B (the yogic asana), C (the recreational part). The experimental group underwent training for 15 weeks, 4 days a week and 45 minutes per class including warming-up and cooling down exercises. The Hand Screwing Coordination (Bennit hand tool dexterity test) and Hand steadiness (Whipple’s steadiness tester) on left and right hand were selected as dependable variables and tested before and after experimental period. The collected data was analyzed by using ANCOVA. Further independent‘t’ was calculated to find out the difference between left and right hand and the percentage was also calculated to find out the level of improvement on dexterous. Level of confidence was fixed at 0.05. The result of the study shows that the model physical education on curriculum improves the coordination and balance of selected subjects (experimental group). As compared to control group.
