The syllabuses for “Theoretical Sports Training”, lower cycle of high school, propose the design of learning contents from the perspectives that are focused on sports specific competences. The examination of these curriculum documents has led to the conclusion that it is necessary to (re)set the competences and contents on more accurate settings that would eliminate the ambiguity and hazards from the teaching process. The dysfunctions revealed in this study reflect on the fact that the goals wanted to be achieved via these general competences do not always find their reification in the current syllabuses of the 9th and 10th grades. Thus, we consider that the resolutions provided to remedy the specific lacks and inaccuracies which have been demonstrated are able to place on the same line the “Theoretical Sports Training” subject of a modern and efficient education, which would, on the one hand, develop the teachers’ skills, and on the other hand, strengthen the skills set and the practical experience of all subjects that are within the top performance sports domain.
Key words: high school lower cycle syllabuses, “Theoretical Sports Training” school subject, general and specific competences, teaching contents
