The sample of the study consisted of people who came to the sports facilities in Istanbul to do sports. “Perceived service quality scale of sport-fitness centers” and “Customer satisfaction scale of sports facilities” were used as data collection tools. The analysis of the data was done with the "Independent Groups T-Test" and "ANOVA" using the SPSS 28 program. As a result of the study, it was determined that there is a relationship in the same direction &nbsp;between the service quality perception of the participants and customer satisfaction, and that "gender", "education level" and "time of membership to the sports facility" affect the perception of service quality. Accordingly, it is important for sports facilities to periodically evaluate the service quality perceptions of their customers, and to make necessary improvements by considering demographic characteristics, in order to ensure a sustainable success.</p> 2022-09-15T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 ROL Spor Bilimleri Dergisi https://roljournal.com/index.php/rol/article/view/71 A research on the reasons to prefer the brand in the use of sports products 2022-06-23T17:21:04+03:00 Emrah Ozer emrahozerrr@gmail.com Zuhal Yurtsızoglu yurtsiz@gmail.com <p class="ZET-ABSRACT">In Turkey, the ratio of the young consumer group to the total population is quite high.

In addition, to determine the relationship between physical activity level and sleep quality. Participants of the study constituted of total 600 (313 male and 287 female) people who are member of selected sports center from 12 districts from Asian side, Ġstanbul (Ümraniye, Pendik, Üsküdar, Kadıköy, Maltepe, Kartal, Maltepe, Sultanbeyli, Sancaktepe, Beykoz, Tuzla, Çekmeköy). Measurement as a tool was used the International Physical Activity Questionnaire (IPAQ) and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index. In the statistical analysis, descriptive statistics was used to identify participants’ demographic profiles and was decided to use the parametric test by using test of normality and homogeneity. In the gender comparisons, t test was used in the two dependent groups. For the comparison of more than two groups, ANOVA test was used. The distributions of percent/frequency of all scale substance are made. In examining the relationship between dependent variables Pearson Correlation was used. According to results obtained from research, there is no significant relationship between the level of physical activity and the sleep quality. It was found that statistically significant relationship between sleep quality sub-dimensions and physical activity level are usually perceived as negative and weak.</p> 2022-09-15T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 ROL Spor Bilimleri Dergisi https://roljournal.com/index.php/rol/article/view/82 Examination of personal care products use levels of women basketball players 2022-09-23T11:20:11+03:00 Murat Unalmıs murat.unalmis@amasya.edu.tr Mustafa Kaya mustafakaya58@cumhuriyet.edu.tr Yakup Paktas yakup.paktas@gop.edu.tr <p>The purpose of this research is to determine the personal care products usage levels of the elite female basketball players according to the various variables.

SPSS 25 statistical analysis program was used in the analysis of the data. These data are expressed as frequency and percentage. In addition, the Chi-Square Test (x2) was conducted to determine whether the variables of income level, education status and duration of doing sports have a significant effect on the answers given to the attitude questions. There was no significant difference in the variables of Personal care products and frequency of use of athletes, education level and duration of doing sports. In the comparison by Monthly Income Level, it was determined that there was a significant difference in terms of soap, wet wipes, deodorant and make-up remover usage levels.

In this direction, the effect of epistemological beliefs on teaching shows its academic importance. The research was carried out to examine the epistemological beliefs of the students of the faculty of sports sciences towards learning according to some variables. It was designed by adopting the descriptive survey model, which is among the quantitative research methods. The study group of the research consists of 279 students, 168 females (60.2%) and 111 (39.8%) males. In addition to the personal information form, the "Epistemological Beliefs Scale for Learning" was used in the study. Within the scope of the research, the IBM SPSS 25 package program was used in the implementation of the statistical processes of the data obtained from the students. No significant difference was found between the students' epistemological beliefs towards learning and the gender variable. A significant difference was found in all sub-dimensions between the students' epistemological beliefs towards learning and the sport type variable, the mean scores of team athletes in the dimension of accessing information and individual athletes in other dimensions are high. While no significant difference was found in the epistemic contradiction and access to information sub-dimensions between the students' epistemological beliefs about learning and the department variable, a significant difference was found in the other sub-dimensions. The mean scores of the students of sports management department were found to be high in absolute and single reality dimensions, and against genetic nature. A significant difference was found between students' epistemological beliefs towards learning and class and age variables.</p> 2022-09-15T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 ROL Spor Bilimleri Dergisi https://roljournal.com/index.php/rol/article/view/92 Comparison of irisin and bdnf levels of soccer players and sedentary players 2022-09-29T16:00:29+03:00 Hamza Kucuk hamza.kucuk@omu.edu.tr Tulay Ceylan tulaykaymak17@hotmail.com <p>Myokines are structures that have positive effects on metabolic processes. Irisin transforms the white adipose tissue into brown adipose tissue, providing energy expenditure and thus regulating glucose homeostasis. BDNF is a hormone that has positive structural effects on the central nervous system. In this regard, it is essential to investigate the effect of doing sports on myokines. For this reason, this study aims to compare the serum irisin and BDNF levels of football and sedentary players. Twenty-five sedentary football players, who have played football for at least five years active, participated in the study. Independent t-test was used to compare sedentary and football players. As a result of the analysis, it was determined that the serum BDNF and irisin levels of the football players were higher than the sedentary ones. The possible effects of exercise can explain the emergence of this difference. Sedentary individuals can be recommended to participate in sports activities to increase their quality of life.</p> 2022-09-15T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 ROL Spor Bilimleri Dergisi https://roljournal.com/index.php/rol/article/view/84 Comparison of 2018 world cup match performances by confederations 2022-09-28T14:11:19+03:00 Süleyman Bılgın suleymanbilgin49@gmail.com Recep Surhat Müniroglu smuniroglu@hotmail.com <p>In this research, the comparison of technical- tactical (goal, pass, shot, cross) and running performances of FIFA 2018 World Cup group and post-group matches according to confederations is discussed. The data used in the research were obtained from https://www.fifa.com and https://tr.whoscored.com. Matches whose 90 minutes did not end in a draw were included in the study. In addition, as a result of the analyzes, it is aimed to evaluate and interpret which parameters are at the forefront in terms of technical-tactical and running performances of the particularly successful continents, and to determine the differences between the football schools of the continents and to focus on some criteria such as training and team setup by the coaches. The universe and sample of this study consists of a total of 50 matches played according to the single elimination method in the group stage and after the groups. As a result of the study, from a technical-tactical point of view; The European and South American continents' goal, pass and shot values ​​are both proportionally and statistically better than other confederation teams, Asian and African footballers' success in both high-intensity runs and sprint numbers is not reflected in the team's success, and the European teams' total runs in the competitions. It can be said that a high distance is not a success criterion on its own.</p> 2022-09-15T00:00:00+03:00 Copyright (c) 2022 ROL Spor Bilimleri Dergisi
