Based on preliminary studies conducted, the still low level of development of children's basic motion, especially the ability of object control students, is a problem in this study. Many factors are suspected to be the cause of the low ability of the control object, including eye-hand and gender coordination that children have. This study aims to see the effect of eye-hand coordination and gender on the ability of the object of control. The population in this study were all PAUD students in the city of Pariaman, random sampling techniques totaling 48 children. The instrument used to obtain data on student eye-hand coordination is the MABC 2 subtest, namely catching and aiming and the ability of object control is obtained through the Test of Gross Motor Development-2 (TGMD-2). Based on the results of research conducted there is the influence of eye-hand coordination and Gender on the ability of the control object obtained rcount value of 0.428> rtable of 0.304 and a significant value (Sig) of 0.005 is smaller than the probability of 0.05. The results of this study indicate that the level of development of object control abilities possessed by PAUD students in the city of Pariaman is influenced by eye-hand coordination and Gender.
