The aim of this study was to examine the resiliency of high school education students and to compare it by athletic or non-athletic factors. A sample of 728 (284 girls, 444 boys) high school students who were chosen randomly among pupils studying in Gaziantep provided responses. High School Version of California Resiliency Rating Scale which was developed in 1999 by WestEd and Duerr Evaluation Resources, and adopted by Ozcan (2005) into Turkish was used as data collection tool. In dependent samples t-test was used to test the statistical differences in mean scores by using SPSS 16.0 program. Analysis indicated that resiliency levels of all students involved in our studies are above average; and when it is evaluated from the point of doing sports, in male high school students it is showed that being athletic have positive affects over the increase of resiliency level; on the other hand, considering female students, it was determined that sport causes more increase in factors described as external resiliency traits of sport; however, it is stated that sport has no affect on internal resiliency traits. As a conclusion, gender variance does not have any influence over resiliency levels of high school sportsman pupils.
