The article contains research materials devoted to the study of a number of individual features of the anatomical structure of the bone in athletes of puberty and adolescence who are actively involved in handball. Additionally, in these studied groups of young handball players, a number of morphological and functional index values were determined in order to determine the morphological somatic changes in their body structure and, in particular, the processes of formation of their bone pelvis. Sportswomen of puberty, according to the results of the study, have normal physiological processes corresponding to their age group, associated with the formation of their bone pelvis. In female athletes of the adolescent age group, all external dimensions of the bone pelvis are less than the generally accepted parameters, which indicates that they have an anatomically narrow pelvis. Also, in the group of youth handball players (n = 119), it was found that normal pelvic sizes are present in 4 (3.36%), generally evenly narrowed pelvis – in 49 (41.18%) athletes, a simple flat pelvis – in 29 (24.37%), transversely narrowed pelvis – in 37 (31.09%) young female handball players. Accordingly, I degree of pelvic narrowing was determined in 28 (23.53%) young handball players, II degree of narrowing – in 4 (3.36%) athletes.

According to the results of the study, it was found that athletes of both groups have normal body mass index values. In the group of handball players of pubertal age, a gynecomorphic sexual somatotype was determined, and in young handball players - a transitional, mesomorphic sexual somatotype. The obtained results of other index values indicate that young handball players have a narrow pelvis, with an almost completely completed process of its formation. According to the results of the study, taking into account the experience and intensity of training of young athletes, it can be argued that the identified somatic changes are a direct result of adaptive processes in athletes.
