After Gardner had introduced the Multiple Intelligence (MI) theory, many researchers tried to find out the possibilities of applying this theory in the education domain. Moreover, the effects of different kinds of athletic applications on intelligence development within the framework of this theory have also been under investigation. This study also tried to explore the possible effects and relations of athletic participation in school sports competitions on MI types of high school female students. For this purpose MI inventory was applied to 198 female students and the data derived from this inventory was evaluated through SPSS 19.0 package programme using descriptive statistics, independent samples t test and Pearson Product Moment Correlation test. The t test results of this research clearly pointed out that participation to athletic activities had significant effects on the verbal/linguistic and bodily/kinaesthetic intelligence development of the students which was also verified through correlation analysis. Besides, correlation analysis showed that there was a significant positive relationship between interpersonal intelligence and sport experience.
