1988 – during an international scientific conference in Trassenheide (GDR) organised by prof. P. Hirtz and named by N .Bernstein, held on 3 November 1988 one of its participants, W. Starosta (Poland) reported and justified a proposal for establishment of the European Association of Sport Kinetics. The proposal has gained support of representatives from 7 countries (Bulgaria, CSSR, GDR, FRG, Switzerland, USSR and Poland). Appointed was a team that comprised representatives of three countries (GDR – R. Pohlmann, P. Hirtz; USSR
– V. Ljach; Poland – W. Starosta), which was to take up measures aimed at having the
– Association registered in one of those countries.

1990 - on 28 April in Rogi near Gorzów Wlkp. (Poland) during an international scientific conference entitled “Movement coordination in sport” organised by Local Faculty of Physical Education of the University School of Physical Education in Poznań (chairman of the Scientific Committee – prof. W. Starosta) representatives of five countries (CSSR, GDR, Poland, FRG, USSR) established the International Association of Sport Kinetics (IASK). W.
