The chapters referring to the conception and objectives of non-formal physical education at school are significant from the theoretical-methodological viewpoint. The author reveals a diverse and broad approach towards the conception of non-formal physical education.

The author has determined that non-formal education differs among countries in a number of aspects: its system and traditions; position of the state towards non-formal physical education; different legal regulations; financial, scientific, and informational support, etc. The analysis of the objectives of non-formal physical education allows stating that the key objective of non-formal physical education is education of special and general competences that conform to children’s physical and psychological development. It is noteworthy that the empirical part of the monograph contains not only the data of the classical research but also the results of the study of the changes of younger teenagers’ innate physical abilities. It shows the author’s maturity, growth, and scientific mission in its direct meaning as well as the ability to employ and compare own research with the ones conducted by other scholars, and draw conclusions. From the point of view of conceptuality, the theoretical and empirical parts of the publication are complete and informative. A. Šarkauskienė has mastered research methodology and methods of empirical research, has an excellent ability to statistically process, methodologically systematise, evaluate, and compare the obtained data. The current monograph is a complete work that is significant not only for the research field of the author but also for the science of Education in general. The monograph meets the requirements set for this genre of scientific writing. It is written in the correct scientific language and is accessible to researchers of sports pedagogy, teachers of physical education, and sports coaches.
