Participation in the study was carried out on a voluntary and confidential basis. As data collection tools, Task in Sport and Ego Orientation Scale, The Perceived Motivational Climate Questionnaire in Sports and The General Self-Efficacy Scale were used. In the analysis of the data, the relational screening model, which included a comparison between variables and analysis of correlation type, was used. As a result, no significant difference between the position groups they played in the sub-factor scores of starting, not being afraid and persistent keep going, and there was no significant difference in the task and ego orientation questionnaire sub-factor scores according to the position groups they played. There was a positive significant relationship between the age variable and the baseline sub-factor score, while a significant negative correlation was found between the age variable and the keep going sub-factor score. There was a positive significant relationship between the non-indignity sub-dimension, while there was a significant negative relationship between age and ego orientation scores. On the other hand, a significant positive correlation was found between sports age and performance climate and sports age.
