The evaluation of the coping strategies of orienteering athletes under stress
Abstract: The present study evaluated coping strategies for stress of licensed orienteering athletes in comparison to individuals who do not engage athletic activities. The research was prepared in accordance with the relational screening model. The present study employed a validated Stress Coping Style Scale. A total of 184 volunteer individuals (92 orienteering athletes and 92 sedentary individuals) were included. The study revealed that orienteering athletes behaved more rationally and consciously under stressful conditions. They were also cautious and methodic, and more self-confident and optimistic when solving problems.

Comparison of the effects of surface and underwater athletes' repeating breath holding on heart rate and breath holding duration
Abstract: The main goal of this study is to determine in which breath holding the duration for holding one's breath increases during repeating breath holding and the changes in heart rate during holding one's breath. 17 young and healthy male athletes participated in this study. Nine of the athletes were underwater hockey and underwater rugby players, which involves holding breath; the other eight were selected among volunteers from swimming, flipper swimming, water polo, canoeing, rowing sports which are not directly related with holding breath. A resting record was taken for 2 minutes before the first breath holding. Afterwards, subjects were asked to hold their breaths 10 times and 2 minute records were taken between breath holding. Recording continued for 2 minutes after the tenth breath holding. A hearth monitor was used to records heart rates during breath holding. The data gathered were copied to a personal computer and studied by a database and statistics program. Taking the group as a whole, we saw that increase in duration on repeating breath holding was statistically significant, heart rate values dropped during breath holding and this decrease was more distinct. We saw that heart rate values dropped during breath holding compared to the resting periods. We can say that breath holding duration increased with repeating breath holding, this was statistically significant on 4th breath holding, this significance was seen in the group that plays water sports.

Effects of two different exercise on life satisfaction and beck depression level
Abstract: The positive effects of regular aerobic exercises on increasing self-confidence, getting away from negative thoughts, regular sleep and adapting to stress, decreasing depression risk, and life quality are dealt with. The aim of this study was to search the effect of the two different type of eight-week exercises on Life Satisfaction and Depression level according to sedentary women. The groups were formed by total 56 voluntary sedentary women. 25 of them (age; 33.44±4.51 years, height 158.76±5.88 cm) were separated as an aerobic-step group and the rest 31 women (age; 34.87±4.80 years, height 157.25±5.49) were separated as an aerobic-core group. The groups were made to do aerobic-step or aerobic-core exercises at a severity level of 60-70 percent of their heart beat rate for 60 minutes in 4 days during 8 weeks. Before and after the exercise programme, Life Satisfaction Inventory and Beck Depression Inventory were applied to the experimental subjects. For the statistical analysis “student t” test and “paired t” test were used. Body weight and Depression level of each group after the exercise decreased compared to the ones before exercise (p<0.01). Life Satisfaction level of both groups increased after two-month exercise (p<0.01). The Body weight, Life Satisfaction and Depression level measured before the start of the two-month exercise did not show meaningful difference between two groups (p>0.05). But when the values after two months were compared, it was found that the Depression level of the group doing aerobic-step exercise was statistically lower than that of the group doing aerobic-core exercise (p<0.01). Body weight and Life Satisfaction level measured after two months did not show meaningful difference between those two groups (p>0.05).

Family influence on water polo players’ decision to take up this sport
Abstract: Sport is a competitive, solidarism encouraging and cultural phenomenon which improves the abilities that people gained while turning their natural environment into human environment, which a person does as an activity to support socializing and which integrates the society by turning this activity into a job according to certain rules with or without equipments, individually or collectively in a way within the scope of free time activities or in a full-time manner. Sport is very important for human life. People do sports for different purposes. These purposes can be classified as increasing the physical resistance, spending free time in a better way and having a job. Individuals who want to realize such purposes choose a sports branch that is suitable for them. One of those branches is water polo. Our aim in this study is to determine the socioeconomic situations of the families of athletes and why they direct their children to this branch of sports. Target population of the study is formed of the families of athletes doing water polo. Sampling group is formed of 61 families. Survey form that measures socio-economic situations of athletes' families and their reason for participating in the sport was turned into a draft form by using previous similar study samples and the survey form was finalized by taking the opinions of specialist physical education teachers, trainers and athletes. Data was analyzed by using percentage, frequency, arithmetic mean and standard deviation in SPSS program.

"Effects of physical activity programs with visual stimuli on physical development of children with autism spectrum disorder" visual stimuli and movement therapy
Abstract: To investigate the effects of physical activity with visual stimuli on the physical development, motor skills, and social skills of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). A 50-min program of physical activity with visual stimuli was implemented with 33 children (experimental group, n = 18; control group, n = 15) aged 13–16 years with ASD diagnoses. Activities were conducted three times per week for 20 weeks, and follow up was conducted 10 weeks after program completion. The activity field was visibly delineated, and activities were displayed on a giant screen. Cartoons were shown when children lost attention. The experimental group showed advances in all skills, with values more than twice those of the control group. Average weight loss after the exercise program was 2.53 kg in the control group and 6.39 kg in the experimental group. The durations of exercises performed on a cross trainer and treadmill were 3–6 min in the control group and up to 45 min in the experimental group. This research showed that a 50-min daily exercise program with a delimited exercise field and display of cartoons can positively affect the physical performance and motor skills of children with ASD.
