In order to determine their attitudes towards sports, reliability and validity studies were conducted by Sentürk (2015). In order to determine the moral maturity levels of the participants, “Moral Maturity Scale” which was developed by Sengün (2008) and consisting of 66 questions was used. The data obtained from these scales were analyzed by using SPSS 17 package program. Frequency and percentage values were used for data analysis.
