This study aimed to analyse the motivational factors for artistic gymnastics (AG) online training sessions and the children's perception regarding the quality of this training. A sample of 39 children answered the Motivation for Sports Practice Inventory and a structured questionnaire to assess the quality of online sessions. A total of 67%, 53%, and 30% of the children reported the reasons related to “sports competence”, “health”, and “friendship/leisure” are “very important”, respectively. All dimensions evaluated in the structured questionnaire showed a percentage of satisfaction greater than 75%. Therefore, “Sports competence” is the main motivational factor for participation in AG online training sessions. Overall, children were satisfied with the quality of this online training.
