This study aims to determine whether the effect of individual and team athletes on the differences in sports character sub-dimensions differs significantly. The study group consists of licensed athletes of sports clubs operating in Istanbul, licensed athletes studying in the School of Physical Education and Sports, and skiers in Kartepe Ski Center. A questionnaire was conducted with the athletes who constitute the study group of the study. The branches of the athletes are nine branches in total, including Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Tennis, Martial Sports, Athletics, Wrestling, Swimming, and Skiing. A total of 381 athletes, 242 “Male” and 139 “Female” voluntarily formed the study group. The "Sports Character Scale (SCS)" developed by Jang (2013) and adapted into Turkish by Görgüt and Tuncel (2017) was used as a data collection tool in the study. "Sports Character Scale" consists of 27 items in 5-point Likert type and has 5 sub-dimensions. In the analysis of the data, the independent sample t-test was used to compare the paired means, and the Oneway ANOVA tests were used to compare the means between more than two groups. The internal consistency reliability analysis value of the sports character scale was determined as α = .84, Integrity sub-dimension was α = .78, Antisocial Attitude sub-dimension was α = .71, Compassion sub-dimension was α = .63, Sportspersonship sub-dimension was α = .55, and the internal consistency of the justice sub-dimension was determined as α = .68. According to these results, it can be stated that the reliability of the sports character scale used in the analysis of the data was high. As a result of the study, a statistically significant difference was not found only in the compassion (p = 0.864; p> 0.05) sub-dimension according to the gender of the athletes. However, a statistically significant difference was found at the 95% confidence level in other sub-dimensions. When the Sports Character Scale and its Sub-Dimensions were examined according to the Sports Branch, a statistically significant difference was found only between the integrity sub-dimension scores of the sports character scale and the sports branches at the 95% confidence level (F (8-372) = 2.422; p =, 015; p <0.05). When the Sport Character Scale and its Sub-dimensions were examined according to the ages of the athletes, no statistically significant difference was found between the ages of the athletes and their scores in the sport character scale and all sub-dimensions (p> 0.05).
