Number of students doing individual sports (athletics, badminton, table-tennis) are 72 and the number of students that do team sports (basketball, volleyball) are 71.

The collected data were analyzed by the SPSS “13.0” statistical analysis software. In conclusion, in our study, the Social Self-Efficacy Expectation results of subjects that do team sports and don’t do any sports were found to be significantly different and among the group that do team sports, the Social Self-Efficacy Expectation results of the females were found to be higher than the results of the males. Also as a strong negative relationship was determined between age and Social Self-Efficacy Expectation results of the subjects that don’t do sports, a strong positive relationship was determined between the training age and Social Self-Efficacy Expectation results that do sports.
