Abstract

The aim of this study is to determine the feelings of self-confidence of high school students who do sports and do not, and also to analyze determined feelings of self-confidence, whether it changes according to socio-demographic factors. In line with this purpose, a sports highschool and a regular highschool were selected because it was accessible by using the appropriate sampling method from the non-random sampling method, in 2015. Students were informed about the research at Anatolian High School and Sports High School after obtaining the necessary permissions. The self-confidence scale developed by Tokinan and a personal information form prepared by the researchers to determine the socio-demographic characteristics was applied to measure the self-confidence of 100 students, 50 of whom were from Istanbul Faik Somer Fine Arts and Sports High School and 50 students from Pendik High School. The data obtained as a result of the scale applications were analyzed with the SPSS 17.0 package program. As the data showed normal distribution, t-test was used for paired set comparisons among parametric tests, and Variance analysis was used for comparisons of three or more sets. As a result of the study, statistically significant difference has not been found between the self-confidence scores of highschool students doing sports and highschool students not doing sports. While significant difference has not been found in the self-confidence scores of highschool students who do sports and do not, when these scores are compared in terms of gender, family income level, parents are separate/together, father's educational status, parents' attitudes towards the student; the significant difference has been found in terms of mother's educational status and mother’s job. Finally, significant difference has not been found in terms of gender, number of siblings, who pays for preschool care and school success, does she have a license, how many years she has been licensed, whether the parents are alive or not, whether the parents are separated or together (who they are staying with if they are separated) family attitude, income status, father's educational status, and father's work status.

Key words: self-confidence, sport, highscool students.
