This study aims to examine the sportsmanship behavior of undergraduate university students and determine its relationship with communication skills. Accordingly, 415 university students reached online with convenience sampling, one of the non-random sampling methods, constituted the study sample. As data collection tools, the “Sportsmanship Scale” developed by Gümüş et al. (2020), and the “Communication Skills Scale” developed by Korkut-Owen and Bugay (2014), were used. Kurtosis and skewness values were examined to assess the conformity of the obtained data to normal distribution. Data analysis included descriptive statistics determining students' demographic characteristics, t-test, and ANOVA. Correlation Analysis tests were applied to reveal the relationship between the two scales, and a p-value of 0.05 was considered the significance level for all analyzes. The analyzes showed that the total communication skills scores and the scores from the sub-dimensions of active listening, non-verbal communication, and willingness to communicate of women were statistically significantly higher than the scores of men. While the sportsmanship behaviors of the students did not differ based on gender, there was a moderate positive relationship between the communication skills scale and all sub-dimensions of the sportsmanship scale.

    • Authors: Kerem Yıldırım ŞİMŞEK; Hüseyin ÇEVİK, Anıl Onur MERCANOĞLU
      Abstract: Recreation experts are employed in public institutions at a very limited level. Employment limitations in the public institutions direct the graduates of the recreation department to the private sector. This situation necessitates that the qualifications of the recreation department graduates must coincide with the characteristics that the private sector sought in the recreation expert. In line with this requirement, the aim of the research is to determine the basic characteristics required of the recreation department graduates to be employed in the recreation industry in Turkey. In the study, semi-structured interviews were conducted with the participants who were determined by the criterion sampling method. The research group consists of senior managers of businesses that provide sports recreation, tourism recreation, shopping recreation, park recreation, adventure recreation and outdoor recreation services with a high number of employment. Content analysis, one of the qualitative data analysis methods, was conducted on the data obtained as a result of the interviews. When the research findings are examined, it is seen that the characteristics sought in recreation graduates are gathered under five themes. The resulting features can be used as a guide in the recomposition of training programs and in the employment processes. In this study, suggestions are presented on the basic characteristics of recreation department graduates needed in industry and the development of recreation department education programs.

No significant difference was measured in any scales by marital status. There was a significant statistically meaningful difference between the Life-SS and JPS scores by working types, but no difference in the Leisure-SS scores. There was a difference between the Life-SS and JPS scores; the difference in the Leisure-SS scores was not significant. There was a positive and low-level relationship between JPS and Life-SS. Similarly, a positive and low-level relationship was found between the "Psychological," "Educational" and "Social" sub-dimensions of Leisure-SS and Life-SS. However, there was no relationship between the sub-dimensions of JPS and Leisure-SS. In conclusion, there were meaningful differences in all scale scores by specific socio-demographic characteristics; there was a positive correlation between the "Psychological," "Educational" and "Social" sub-dimensions of Leisure-SS and the Life-SS, and that there was no relationship between Leisure-SS, Life-SS, and JPS. As a result, it can be said that as individuals' job performance and leisure time satisfaction increase, their life satisfaction also increases.
