Burak Gürer

Abstract


The purpose of this study is to reveal the reasons of the teachers' tendency to sports activities in the 2016-2017 school year. This research is important in terms of revealing the teachers' sports activities approaches. The samples were generated among the teachers working in selected schools by using random sampling method. In the research, the survey technique used is quantitative research method. Developed by Gill and Deeter (1998) and adapted in Turkish by Erpehlivan (2008) the Sport Orientation Questionnaire (SOQ) is used. 386 teachers have participated in the research. The data were analyzed with the SPSS 22.00 packet program. Statistically significant differences were found according to professional experience and sports branches. Teachers with low vocational experiences tend to compete more in the sports activities that they are doing. In other words, the teachers are heading towards to sports activities for competition. Teachers with low or no vocational experiences are more likely to be successful in the sport branch that they are doing. So their goal is to succeed in the sports that they do. Individual and team sportsmen want to compete, win and be successful in the sport branch that they are doing. Also, those who play team sports tend to be more successful than those who don't participate in sports activities.
