The research was designed with a converging parallel pattern, one of the mixed research approaches. While the quantitative data of the study was obtained through the “Personal Information Form” and “The Effect of Sports on Life Skills” scale; qualitative data were obtained through the "open-ended question form". Parametric tests (independent groups t test, One-Way ANOVA, Pearson Correlation Analysis) were used in the analysis of quantitative data. In qualitative data analysis, content analysis technique was used. According to the data obtained, it was found that gender is an important variable in the effect of sports on life skills and the contribution of sports to women's life skills is higher than that of men. In addition, it was determined that the sports branch showed a significant difference. It was determined that the effect of athletes-students who are interested in athletics on the life skills of sports is higher than those who are interested in tennis. There is no relationship between sports age and the effect of sports on life skills. In the qualitative part of the research, it was stated in the statements of the participants that sports contributed significantly to individuals in terms of health, psychological / spiritual, personality, physical and cognitive development. Therefore, considering that sports have important contributions to people from all walks of life; Special applications should be given to the applications that will enable sports to take place in individuals' lives.
