The purpose of this study is to investigate the self-esteem levels of futsal players according to certain variables. The samples of the study constituted 119 females and 96 males; a total of 215 players with an average age of 21.57 ± 2.20 years. The research was carried out with the end of "Rosenberg self-esteem Scale" developed by Rosenberg in 1965 and adapted to Turkish by Çuhadaroglu. The data collected were analyzed by SPSS 19.0 statistical software and the inter group correlation coefficient was found to be 0.70. The non-parametric Kruskall-Wallis and Mannn-Whitney U test were also employed since the data obtained were unable to satisfy the non-parametric assumptions. The results of the data analysis revealed that the self-esteem levels of 93% of the participants were medium or high. The Mann-Whitney U test results showed that there was a statistically significant difference between the self-esteem levels of the male and female participants [Z(213) = -3.86; p<0.05]. The self-esteem levels of the participants according to age groups [?[superscript 2](215) = 12.92; p<0.05] and perceived income levels [?[superscript 2](215) = 13.47; p<0.05] were also observed to show statistically significant differences according to Kruskal-Wallis Variance analysis .In conclusion, the self-esteem levels of the female participants and the participants having medium perceived income levels were found to be higher than the others. However, the self-esteemlevels were observed to decrease with the increasing age.
