Bozlar O, Ayan V (2017). Revıew of the students’ anthropometrıc and somatotype structures at school of physıcal educatıon and sports. Prim. J. Soc. Sci. 6(2-3): 1467-1475.



The aim of this study is to ascertain anthropometric and somatotype differences of male students who are being educated in the first class of Department of Physical Education and Sport Teacher(DPEST), the Department of Executive Training (DET) and the Department of Coaching Education(DCE) at Karadeniz Technical University, school of Pyhsical Education and Sports. Totally 64 volunteer male students participating in the study; they were 27 students from DPEST, 20 students from DET, 17 students from DCE to this investigation. The somatotypes of the students were determined in accordance with the techniques prescribed by the ‘International Society fort he Advancement of Kinanthropometry (ISAK); 11 antropometric measurements as body weight, body height, knee and elbow circumference (width), biceps and calf girth, triceps, biceps, subscapular, suprailiac and calf skinfold thickness were measured. The Heath-Carter method was used for the determination of the somatotype characteristics. The statistical analysis of the measurements was calculated at spss 22.0 package programme with 95% confidence interval for mean (p<0.05). ANOVA was used to determine the differences among departments and the differences among the departments and measurements were determined with the SHEFFE test. It was determined that the average age was 20,52±0,55 years, the average body weight was 71,028±1,84 kg and the average body weight was 174,38±,39 cm for the students. In this study, the average somatotype values for DPEST students were 3,5-4,1-2,4, DET students were 3,4-4,3-2,1 and DCE students were 3,5-4,1-2,4. As a result, statistically there was no significant difference among endomorph, mesomorph and ectomorph value for the DPEST, DET and DCE students participating in this study.
