The aim of this study is to determine the constraints in participating the leisure activities for college students, the strategies of negotiation regarding these constraints and the relationship between the facilitators and activity participation. The population of the study consists of currently registered students from Ankara University. Accordingly the sample of the study consisted of 191 females (M = 21.13, SD = 2.26) and 220 males (M = 22.19, SD = 2.74) totaling 411 student which was selected convenience sampling method. Students to participate in approximately 2 recreational sport activity per month. "Leisure Constraints Scale" developed by Alexandris and Carroll (1997), "Leisure Negotiation Scale" developed by Hubbard and Mannell (2001) and "Leisure Facilitators Scale" developed by Kim et. al. (2011) was used. For the analysis of the research, descriptive statistics frequency, percentage, arithmetical average and standard deviation were used and the Pearson Correlation Coefficient was used to determine the relationship. A negative connection between leisure constraints and recreational sport activity participation was determined while a positive connection between constraint strategies, leisure facilitators and recreational sport activity was observed. In accordance with this results; as high constraints decreases activity participation, high constraint negotiation strategies and facilitating factors increase activity participation.
