Abstract


The aim of this study is to examine the relationship between referee self-efficacy and general self-efficacy levels of basketball referees in terms of gender, education, age and refereeing experience. The study group was created within a convenience sampling method. 192 referees, 10% (n=19) female, and 90% (n=173) male, who performed active refereeing within Turkish Basketball Federation during 2016-2017 basketball season participated in the study. The personal information form, Referee Self-Efficacy Scale (REFS) and the General Self-Efficacy Scale (GSE) were used as data collection tools. The analysis of the data was conducted using SPSS 21 and AMOS programs. Pearson Product Moment Correlation Coefficient, t-test and one-way variance analysis (ANOVA) were used in determining the relationships between variables, binary and multiple comparisons, respectively. Total scores of referees in REFS and scores obtained from sub-dimensions of physical fitness and decision making show a significant difference according to gender. There is a positive and significant relationship between referees’ physical fitness, game knowledge, decision making, pressure, communication, total scores in GES and REFS, and their age and refereeing experience. There is a positive and significant relationship between referees’ physical fitness, game knowledge, decision making, pressure, communication, total scores in GES and REFS, and all other variables. There is no significant difference between REFS total score, physical fitness, game knowledge, decision making, pressure and communication of referees, and education.
