Serkan Zengin


Research has been conducted for the students studying at Akdeniz University Faculty of Sports Sciences. In the research, it was aimed to investigate the trait anxiety states of students studying at Akdeniz University Faculty of Sports Sciences and a survey model was used in the study. This study is consisted of two parts; there are 6 items in determination of demographical variables in the first part. “Trait Anxiety Inventory” Scale consisting of 20 questions developed by Spielberger was used in the second part. Likert type four-point was used in the scale items given in the second and third parts (showing the statements “Almost Always”, “Sometimes”, “Usually”, “Almost Never”). Once the comparison of trait anxiety levels by the age groups is examined among the results of the study, it is seen that trait anxiety levels of participants differ at a statistically significant level by the age groups (p<0,05). It was concluded that the trait anxiety level of the participants in the age group of 20-21 and age group of 22-23 is significantly higher than the participants in the age group of 23+ (P<0,05). In conclusion, it is considered that those who do individual sports feel more anxiety states since the responsibility only belongs to themselves. Trainings minimizing the anxiety should be further offered to the individuals doing such sports. Individual team athletes who are at national team level may be more supported.
