The interpretation of the current situation in the process of the athletes' education gets more worth through the use of objective assessment, in other words using norm values. The observation of the talent by norms is important for each sport event like it is for wrestling. The purpose of this study is to determinate the normative values of speed and agility ability for student wrestlers. The research group is a group of 480 male student wrestlers between 13-16 years old. The linear speed ability of the group is identified for 13 year olds is 3,576±0,239 sec., for 14 years is 3,422±0,197 sec., for 15 years is 3,316±0,195 sec. and for 16 years is 3,22±0,166 sec. Agility ability of the students is found out for 13 years is 5,701±0,399 sec., for 14 years is 5,487±0,391 sec., for 15 years is 5,399±0,439 sec. and for 16 years is 5,303±0,346 sec. Coaches will have the opportunity to determine objectively the level of their athletes according to their ages because of this study is standardizing speed and agility abilities of student wrestlers as 10% of slices.
