In this study, it was aimed to investigate the trait anxiety levels of football coaches, who serve in Elazığ. The population of the study consisted of football coaches who actively served in the city of Elazığ in 2020 while the sample of the study consisted of 53 football coaches. In the data collection, to determine the demographic information of the participants, a personal information form (education status, age, years of working as a coach, marital status and certificate type) was used while the “Trait Anxiety Scale”, which was developed by Spielberger (1970) and adapted into Turkish by Öner and Le Compte, was used to determine the trait anxiety levels. In the data analysis, SPSS statistics software was used and percentage (%), frequency (f) and standard deviation values were calculated. To conduct the comparisons between groups, t-test and variance analysis (ANOVA) tests were employed. In the study, the error level was regarded as p<0.05. According to the obtained data, no statistically significant differences were observed between the age, marital status, years of working, education status and certificate type variables of the participating coaches in the study and their trait anxiety levels. In the light of the findings of the study, it was observed that the trait anxiety levels of the individuals, who serve as football coaches in the city of Elazığ, were at a moderate trait anxiety level with a general score of 46.71 points. Finally, as a result of the study, it was observed that the trait anxiety levels of the coaches were moderate. Within this scope, it is believed that the results of the study will contribute to sports sciences, psychologists and academics who study on this subject.
