|Study Type :||Interventional (Clinical Trial)|
|Estimated Enrollment :||54 participants|
|Intervention Model:||Parallel Assignment|
|Intervention Model Description:||
Experimental design is applied where HIIG is compared with MIG. The participants of the study will be divided into two groups; HIIG and MIG. Both of them will have two sessions per week during 12 weeks of intervention.
Follow up: children are contacted 3 months after finishing the intervention.

Experimental: High-intensity intermittent games HIIG
High-intensity intermittent games (HIIG): complete a supervised 12-weeks. Twice per week child-specific games program, intensity HRmax 75% ≤ - RPE 6-8.
Behavioral: High-intensity intermittent games
The intervention will last for 12-weeks, each group included participation in twice-week 40 minutes exercise sessions. In HIIG children took part in 5 games per session; 2 velocity games and 3 small-sided games (such 3 vs 3 and 4 vs 4). This session included 4 minutes games and 2 minutes recovery. In MIG children took part in 5 games per session. This session included 4 minutes games and 3 minutes recovery.
Active Comparator: Moderate-intensity games (MIG)
Moderate intensity games (MIG): complete a supervised 12-weeks. Twice per week child-specific games program, intensity HRmax 60-74% ≤ - RPE 4-5.
Behavioral: Moderate intensity games
The intervention will last for 12-weeks, each group included participation in twice-week 40 minutes exercise sessions. In MIG children took part in 5 games per session. This session included 4 minutes games and 3 minutes recovery.
