Abstract

The purpose of this study is to examine characteristics of volleyball referees' self-efficacy and life satisfaction. Referees are the sample group of this study. There are 158 referees, consisting of 73 male (X-age=21,58 +/- 1,79), 85 female (X-age=21,91 +/- 1,63) participants, who voluntarily attended this study. Data collection tools of "Life Satisfaction Scale", which is developed by Diener and fr. (1985) and adapted to Turkish culture by Yetim (1991), and "General Self-Efficacy Scale" developed by Sherer and fr. (1982) to collect data about self-efficacy situations, and adapted to Turkish culture by Yildirim and Ilhan (2010), are used. In data analysis, a correlational survey model, which includes examination types of comparison and correlation between variables, is used. As the distribution is found normal after the test of normality, unpaired T-Test for comparing two independent groups and Pearson Correlation Coefficient for observing their relations are employed. According to research findings, it is found out that there is not any meaningful difference about genders at sub-factor ratings of starting, standing up to and effort to keeping it up-insisting. When the refereeing age is examined, there is a positive meaningful relation with the sub-dimension of starting (p<.05; r=.217), while there is another positive meaningful relation with life satisfaction (p<.05; r=.193).
