Summary


THE EFFECTS OF THE MENTAL TRAINING SKILLS ON THE PREDICTION OF THE SPORTS SCIENCES FACULTY STUDENTS' ANXIETY LEVELS

This research was conducted to predict the anxiety level of the Sport Sciences Faculty students. In the study, mental fundamental skills, mental performance skills, interpersonal skills, self talk and mental imagery variables were accepted as predictive variables and it was aimed to determine the effect of these variables on anxiety level. The study group of the research consisted of 286 athletes from various sports branches studying at the Faculty of Sports Sciences of a state university. In the research, the Sport Mental Training Questionnaire (SMTQ) and Trait Anxiety Scale were used as data collection tool. In study, Multiple Linear Regression Analysis technique was used between mental training skill and anxiety level variables of Faculty of Sports Sciences students. Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r) was used to calculate the relationships between variables. Independent sample T-test technique was applied for differences of mental training skills factors and anxiety levels according to the variables of gender and sports branch, which are independent variables. As a result of the research, mental fundamental skills, mental performance skills, interpersonal skills, self talk and mental imagery variables together give an moderate and significant relationship with anxiety level [R=.60; R2=.36; p<.05]. These five variables together explain approximately %36 of the total variance. Also, it was found that male participants are more successful than female participants in sub-dimension of mental performance skills, but according to the their total SMTQ mean scores, it was determined that there is no difference between male and female athletes. In addition, in male participants, it was concluded that individual sports participants are more successful than team sports participants in sub-dimension of mental performance skills but according to the their total SMTQ mean scores, it was seen that there is no difference between individual sports participants and team sports participants. In female participants, anxiety levels of the individual sports participants are lower than the team sports participants. Finally, it was found that age and sport age have a postive and significant relationship with mental training skill. In conclusion, it is suggested that a training program for the use of mental training skills is prepared and regularly implemented by athletes.
