We adopted the five dimensions mentioned above among factors in our research. Material and methods. The applied research tool was the Scale of Sports Situation Dimensions. In a selected group, we employed the criterion of competence. Results and conclusions. The study showed that the most characteristic dimension of the prototype sports situation in football was social reception, followed by competitiveness, long-lasting training, motor activity, and maximization of action.
