The aim of this study is to examine some anthropometric and physical fitness parameters of the students who are studying at the School of Physical Education and Sports and who do not have any license with the students who are licensed in different sports branches. The mean age of this study was 20,3 ± 0,76 for females and 19,7 ± 0,78 for female, 22,0 ± 0,71 for male and 22,9 ± 0,78 for female students. . The age, height and body weight of the athletes were measured and body mass index (BMI) was

After the data were entered into SPSS program, paired t-test was used to determine the differences between some anthropometric and physical fitness characteristics of licensed and unlicensed students. While anthropometric measurements showed a significant difference in height and body weight (p <0.05; p <0.01), BMI was not significantly different between groups (p <0.05). Physical fitness parameters of 20 m speed, stop long jump, flexibility, flamingo balance, double arm push and vertical jump test results of the licensed groups were not significantly different than the unlicensed (p <0.05, p <0.01). As a result, some anthropometric and physical fitness parameters of the athletes who are licensed in different sports branches are determined. It can be argued that these differences are caused by the different physical characteristics and training programs of the students.
