Those whoanswered the question as "I do not agree" was 59% of women and 69% ofmen. In the second question, the rate of those who do not agree with theopinion that women should not do sports is 95% for women and 91% for men.According to this, it is seen that a transformation was created from astructure that women were not seen proper to do sports to a structure that bothwomen and men do sports and both women and men included in some sports thatthey took place together. As a result, it is seen that the public sphere hasalso become significantly genderless.

  • Analysis of sports management students’ opinions on project-based

    • Authors: Ahmet ŞAHİN
      Abstract: The purpose of this study isto analyze Sports Management Students’ Opinions on Project-Based Learning. Agreat majority of the sports management students who participated in the studydo sports regularly and only a little portion of 3.3 % stated that they do notdo sports at all. In order todetermine the attitudes of students towards the method of Project-BasedLearning, an attitude scale -originally called Project-Based Learning AttitudeScale (PBLAS), which consisted of a total of 26 items (13 positive and 13negative) was prepared after receiving the expert opinion of Sezgin in 2008. The ratio of female sports managementstudents who read books is higher that the ratio of male students. On the otherhand, the frequency of visiting entertainment venues is higher for malestudents compared to female students. When the average scores of the answersgiven to the Project-Based Learning scale are observed, it can be concludedthat the students who participated in the study were eager to make use of thebenefits of project-based learning, however because they were also affectedfrom negative cases, they were often undecided. When the opinions of theproject-based learning study participants are analyzed according to gender, itcan be claimed that for the 4 items that were available in the scale, malestudents had more positive opinions compared to female students. It can be alsoseen that more female students expressed positive opinions for item first.

  • The Effect of The Plyometric Training Program on Sportive Performance
           Parameters in Young Soccer Players

    • Authors: Tahsin İNCE; Önder DAĞLIOĞLU
      Abstract: The studies that aim tobring together the strength and the speed of movement are called plyometrictrainings. Our aim in this study is to be able to show the effect of plyometrictraining program on sportive performance parameters in young soccer players andto make recommendations for coaches and sportsmen on sportive training andtraining planning from this point. Twenty-four male soccer players aged 17-22making regular soccer training participated in the study. Two different groupswere formed as experimental and control groups and a plyometric trainingprogram was applied to the experimental group for 3 days a week for 8 weeks.Both groups continued their normal soccer training. Height, weight, body massindex (BMI), body fat percentage (BFP), aerobic capacity (VO2max),anaerobic capacity, speed and flexibility were measured before and aftertraining. The trainings known as drop jump, box jump, squat jump, split squatjump, overhead slam and plyometric push-up were applied to the plyometrictraining group. Vertical jump test was used for anaerobic capacity measurement.Flexibility test (Sit and Reach test) and speed test (30 m) were applied. Forstatistical analysis, Paired Sample t-test was used in group comparisons andIndependent Sample t-test was used for intergroup comparisons. BFP, anaerobic capacity,VO2max, speed and elasticity values ​​were found to be significantafter the plyometric training program of the experimental group (p<0.05). BFPand VO2max values ​​of the control group were significant (p<0.05).When the groups were compared, anaerobic capacity, speed and flexibility valueswere found to be significant in favor of the experimental group (p<0.05).There was no significant difference in weight, BMI, BFP and VO2maxvalues ​​(p>0.05). As a result of our research, the plyometric trainingprogram applied to young soccer players is considered to have a positive effecton sportive performance parameters. It can be said that regular and programmed plyometrictraining improves sportive performance positively.

      Abstract: The aim of this study is to examinethe influence different models of force trainings on balance values. In the research, 30 volunteerparticipants including 20 experimental (experiment A, experiment B) and 10control aged between 18-22 have taken part. Volunteer participants partaking inexperiment group have been incorporated into different force trainings of 3days in a week during eight weeks. Training program 4. It has been modifiedtheir 1 maximum ranks (1TM) by being identified again at the end of the week.While the participants taking part in Experiment A (n=10) were given classicforce training, those taking part in Experiment B (n=10) were given super slowmotion force training. The participants in control group have gone on theirroutine daily lives. Before and after the training period, the values of StarExcursion Balance Test (SEBT) have been recorded. The values of Skewness &Kurtosis have been looked up to retain whether the datum obtained show normaldistribution or not. When Repeated Measure ANOVA (Repeated Measure Anova) testwas being applied to identify the differences between groups, Simple EffectTest has been implemented to determine the development level in the group.Significance level has been determined as p< 0.05. According to the results of Repeatedmeasures Anova test, even though the significant change has been seen when thedifferences in the values of left foot star balance test in both experimentgroup were compared before and after the training period, a statisticallysignificant difference has been determined in the values of right foot starbalance test. According to theSimple Effect Test results, while the increase in the classic force training(experiment A) group is meaningless,it has been found that the increase inSuper Slow Motion force training (experiment B) group is statisticallymeaningful. The results obtained show that classic and super slowmotion force trainings have contributed to the development of force after theimplementation period. Depending on the force gaining, the development in thevalues of dynamic balance has been seen. However, depending on string out interms of time of tending to concentric and eccentric muscular contraction inslow motion force trainings, its influence on balance performance has more comeinto prominence.

           Motivation, Consumer Satisfaction and Behavioral Intentions

    • Authors: Oğuhan DEMİRHAN; Ersin ESKİLER
      Abstract: Whileconsumer motivation is considered as a theoretical approach that explains howindividuals choose to engage in various consumption behaviors at certain times,the theory of disapproval provides a common theoretical basis for exploring andexplaining consumer satisfaction and consumer responses to consumption. As amatter of fact, it is important for the management to determine how the effectof motivation on consumer satisfaction and the future tendencies of individualsafter consumption. In this context, the aim of the study was to reveal themotivation of participating individuals in the fantasy football and toinvestigate the relationship of motivation between, consumer satisfaction andbehavioral intentions. The research was carried out by the survey model and thejudgmental sampling method was used for sampling. The study populationconsisted of 509 active fantasy football participants in Turkey. The data werecollected by an on-line survey method based on volunteerism. In order todetermine participant characteristics, descriptive statistics and to identifythe relationships between variables, correlation and regression analysis wereused. The findings showed that there was a positive statistically significantrelationship between fantasy football participation motivation (FFPM)sub-dimensions and consumer satisfaction and behavioral intention variables. Asa result of the regression analysis, FFPM (subscales of entertainment, socialinteraction and gambling) could be predicted behavioral intent @ 36% (F =92,453, p <0.01). On the other hand, behavioral intention could be explainedby consumer satisfaction at @% 54 (F = 591,325, p <0,01). Whenboth variables were included in the analysis, FFPM entertainment sub-dimension(β = 0.228) and consumer satisfaction (β = 0.604) could be clarified behavioralintentions by 57% (F (2, 506) = 340.236; p <0.01). In conclusion, it can bestated that FFPM and consumer satisfaction are important determinants ofbehavioral intentions separately and together.

  • An investigation of Eccentric Versus Concentric Resistance Training: The
           Role of Movement Velocity and Training Type

    • Authors: Gürcan ÜNLÜ; Settar KOÇAK
      Abstract: It is known that highintensity dynamic resistance training which involves eccentric and concentriccontractions is one of the effective method for maximizing strength. Although,it is postulated that eccentric and concentric contractions provide differentphysiological adaptations, previous studies comparing the short-term effects ofthese two contractions have reported contradictory findings, with some studiesreporting greater strength development with eccentric, some with concentric andsome with similar within both training (18). Methodological differences may beof critical importance to the reported different findings, when focusing on theunderlying reasons for these effects are discussed. The majority of previousstudies on this topic have used isokinetic equipment to compare eccentric withconcentric training, however there are also several studies which used isotonicmethod which is the most common type of resistance training. Since the effectsof these two methods can form different physiological adaptations (9), it maynot be proper to review the studies related to eccentric and concentriccomparisons without taking into account training method variable. Inisokinetic, contraction velocity can be controlled by the dynamometer howeverit is hard to standardize the movement velocity of isotonic training.  And also previous studies showed thatmovement velocity of resistance training may affect strength development (11).At this juncture, the aim of this paper was to review the studies investigatingeccentric and concentric resistance training and discuss the reported findingsby considering methodological differences (training type and movementvelocity).  Althoughit was difficult to present certain implications due to only few studiesincluding same methods in terms of contraction types and training methods, somehighlights from this paper can be very informative to further studies. One ofthem is that the effects of eccentric and concentric resistance training mightbe different according to training types. The effects of movement velocity ofresistance training on strength may also be different in terms of isotonic orisokinetic training methods.

  • Network Motifs in Football

    • Authors: Necmi GÜRSAKAL; Fırat Melih YILMAZ, Halil Orbay ÇOBANOĞLU, Sandy ÇAĞLIYOR
      Abstract: Complexnetworks often display network motifs and these can be described as subgraphs.Methods for analyzing complex networks promise to be of great benefit to almostall scientific disciplines including sports. In football if we want to disruptthe opponent's game format, we must first be aware of the pass motifs that theteam often uses. Determining how to break these motifs will make an importantcontribution to the success of a team. In thisstudy, 3-nodes and 4-nodes pass motifs of the teams were examined within theframe of a data set of ten games and the most frequent repetitions of thesemotifs were determined. In addition, we suggest that in a match, the balancecan be measured by the correlation between the frequencies of the motif typesand there may be an inverse relationship between this correlation and thedifference in the goals of the match.

  • The Examination of Self-Efficacy Beliefs of Physical Education Pre-Service
           Teachers According to Different Variables

    • Authors: Tolga ESKİ; Ayşe Feray ÖZBAL, Arıkan EKTİRİCİ
      Abstract: Educationis becoming more and more important in today’s world. It is also acknowledgedthat training teachers with high levels of self-confidence in educationfaculties is likely to improve the quality of education in the future. Bandura (3) proposed the term“self-efficacy” for the first time in 1977 in his book titled Self-efficacy: Toward aUnifying Theory of Behavioral Change. He based this concept on Social Learning Theory anddefined it as “ one’s belief about his/her own ability to acquire a specificbehavior successfully”. It has been witnessedthat self-efficacy beliefs of pre-service teachers affect their perception aboutstudents, behaviors, eagerness to learn, experiences and learning outcomes. Thus,this study aims to determine self-efficacy beliefs of pre-service teachers of physicaleducation and sports regarding teaching profession and to examine whether thedata obtained vary according to certain variables. Thestudy used survey method. A total of 526 university students (222 female and 304 male) whoattend the Physical Education and Sports Teaching Departments of 6 differentuniversities in Turkey participated in the study on avoluntary basis. Developedby the researchers, this form includes questions aiming to obtain the followinginformation about the participants: age, gender, the university they attend,class level, family income level, and educational background of parents. Inaddition, the study used “Teacher Self-efficacy Scale”, which was developed byTschannen-Moran and Woolfolk Hoy (21) and adapted to Turkish context by Çapa etal. (7). The data was analyzed by using SPSS 22 softwareand descriptive analysis, independent variable t-test and ANOVA tests wereused.    Therewas a meaningful difference in ‘’Student Participation’’ and ‘’ClassroomManagement’’ sub-dimensions in terms of university variable (p<05).Likewise, there was a meaningful difference in ‘’Student Participation’’ and‘’Classroom Management’’ sub-dimensions in terms of mother’s educationalbackground variable (p<05). Asa result, meaningful differences were found in variables such as university andmother’s educational background. The reason may be that universities took placein different geographical areas of the country. It can be said that the effectof the level of education of the mother on the growth environment is the reasonfor this difference.

  • Comparison of Tibial Torsion Angles Between Elite Athletes and Sedentary

    • Authors: Ahmet BAYRAK; Galip Bilen KÜRKLÜ, Melda Pelin YARGIC, Isik TUNCER
      Abstract: Torsion is described as a rotational deformationwhere a long bone turns longitudinally around its own axe. Torsion in tibia isthe main reason of children’s stepping in-toe and out-toe. It not only createsorthopedic problems in the future, but also is a risk factor for lowerextremity injuries. This study intends to compare Tibial Torsion Angle (TTA) ofsedentary people to the soccer players of a Turkish Super Leage team. Bycomparing TTA angles of elite soccer players who train and compete regularly andhave   high level of muscle power andendurance to the sedentary control group, it is aimed to determine whether highlevel soccer training effect TTA. The research was conducted betweenJune-October 2015 on 25 elite soccer players and 25 sedantary people bymeasuring their right and left tibial torsion angles via transmalleolarmeasurement with a goniometer. Non-parametric tests were used in statisticalanalysis, Mann-Whitney U test was used for comparisons. There was not asignificant difference in right-left measurements within groups. Between groupsright TTA showed no significant difference but left TTA measurements variedsignificantly (p˂0.05). These findings suggest that tibial torsionangle differs according to physical activity level. It is understood thatregular and long-time exercise programmes can change TTA.

The training program consists of strength,strength, agility, speed, technique, tactics, coordination andflexibility.  Body length, body weight,heart rate measurements, skin fold thickness of three different parts and bodymass index (BMI) were measured before and after the 8 week training period toevaluate body composition. Densities were calculated using the Jackson andPollock (1978) formula, taking into account the skin fold thicknessmeasurements made. Percent body fat is calculated using Siri's formula. Thebody mass index is determined by the World Health Organization (WHO) formula. Astatistically significant difference was found in the comparison of theathletes' weight, resting heart rate, body mass index and body fat percentagein the first and last week measurements according to Wilcoxon signed rank testresults (p<0.05).As a result, inthis study; The 8-week training program which includes strength, strength,speed, agility, coordination, technique and flexibility enhancing exercisesshowed significant changes in parameters of body composition of Ay Yıldız SporKulubu ampute athletes.

  • Morphometric Effects of Testosterone Supplementation on Certain Extremity
           Bones in Young Swim-Trained Rats

    • Authors: Abdullah KILCI; Sefa LOK
      Abstract: There has been a dramaticincrease in the use of doping agents today. Used by athletes to increasestrength, endurance and speed, AAS lead to various negative effects on the humanbody despite enhancing performance and strength. The purpose of this study wasto investigate the morphometric effects of testosterone supplementation oncertain extremity bones in young swim-trained rats. The study was conductedwith a total of 24 30-day-old male Wistar rats obtained from Selcuk UniversityExperimental Medicine Research and Application Center. The rats were divided intofour equal groups of six: control (C), exercise (E), testosterone (T) andtestosterone+exercise (TE) groups. The appropriate weekly dose was adjusted forthe rats in the testosterone-treated group according to their body weights. Thefront and back extremity bones of the materials were dissected and theuncovered humerus and femur bones were dried. The length, corpus thickness, cortexcortical thickness and medulla diameter points of each bone were determined andthe morphometric measurements were taken. The results were presented asMean±SD. Data were analyzed through comparison between the groups by usingANOVA and Duncan test. The significance level was set at P<0.05. The femurand humerus lengths of the TE, T, E, and C groups were compared and the respectivelengths were femur; 32.24±1.04 for the C group, 32.23±0.28 for the E group,31.12±0.73 for the TE group and 30.93±0.72 for the T group, humerus; 25,74±0,77for the C group, 25,66±0,25 fot the E group, 24,68±0,53 for the TE group and24,58±0,41 for the T group. The femur and humerus bones of the rats in thegroups given testosterone supplementation (TE and T) were significantly shorterthan those of the rats in the other two groups (p<0.05). However, there werenot any statistical differences among the TE, T, E, and C groups in terms ofcortex, corpus and medullary diameter measurements of the femur and humerusbones (p>0.05).  The results of the study showed thattestosterone supplementation stopped the growth of femur and humerus by causingpremature epiphyseal closure in them. Also, even exercise did not reduce theadverse effects of testosterone supplementation. Although some athletes thinkthat prohibited agents used as AAS affect performance positively, these agentsshould not be used because of their adverse effects on athletes’ health andbecause they are against sports ethics.

  • The Influence of Creatine Use on Performance of Swimmers

    • Authors: Hakan ACAR; Erkut TUTKUN, Osman İMAMOĞLU, Tülin ATAN
      Abstract: The aim of this study is to examine the effects ofcreatine use on the performance of swimmers. The existing literature wasreviewed. The studies were presented in tables. It was found that most of thestudies on creatine use in swimming branch were on single sprint performance,repeated interval swimming set performance and increase in strength. Increaseswere found in maximal swimming time and recovery capacity. 1,52%performance increase was found in sprint swims. Increases between 2-8% werefound in total work performance. There were also studies which did not reportany effect of creatine on performance. One of the reasons why such studies didnot report any effects is insufficient creatine loading. In swimmers who usecreatine, the effects are generally seen in fat-free body weight, total bodyweight and amount of body water. In controlled studies conducted on swimmers, bothplasma concentration increase and elevation of total creatine amount in musclescan occur with creatine supplement intake (daily about 20 gr). This increasecan be positively reflected in performance. It can contribute to swimmers’aerobic and anaerobic endurance of upper and lower extremities, sprint runningand sprint swim speed, maximal strength and strength continuity and recoveryspeed in-between repeats and post-training. Its use should be conducted innormal doses under physician control.

      Abstract: The purpose ofthis study is to examine the general nutritional habits of students studying atNiğde Ömer Halisdemir University, School of Physical Education and Sports. Throughvoluntary participation –as being 89 males and 94 females- 180 students intotal. General Nutrition Scale whose reliability has been realized by Öztürk(2017) had been used as data collection tool. In the analysis of data,percentage and frequency had been used for demographical features, and ANOVAhad been used for descriptive statistics and for the determination ofdifferences among groups. Consequently, while a significant difference had beendetermined in between the variable of age and the propositions regardingattitudes towards general nutrition, and in between the variables of gender,height and weight and the propositions regarding behaviors towards foodsupplements. In the propositions regarding behaviors towards food supplements,it had been determined that the averages are high in favor of males. While asignificant difference had been determined in the variable of department and inpropositions regarding attitudes towards general nutrition. In the propositionsregarding attitudes towards general nutrition, it had been determined that itis in favor of the students of Department of Coaching from among the studentsof Department of Coaching and students of Department of Sports Management.While a significant relation in positive direction had been determined inbetween the variable of weekly attendance to gym and propositions regardingbehaviors towards additive containing nutrition. It has been revealed that theindividuals attending the gym exhibit a more positive attitude regarding theuse of additive containing substances compared to the ones not attending thegym. While a significant relation in positive direction had been determined inbetween the variable of number of meals and propositions regarding behaviorstowards additive containing nutrition, no significant relation had been foundamong the other propositions.
