Positive perception status increases one's worthiness, self-confidence and perspective towards time positively (Icerson & Pines, 2013). The present study aims to examine the positive perception levels of the trainers, who participated in the second level athletics training course opened by the Turkish Athletics Federation at different times in 2021, in terms of some variables. A total of 246, 139 men and 107 women (Age Avg.=31 .04±7.37), constitute the sample of the study for athletics training courses. Personal information questionnaire developed by the researcher and Positive Perception Scale adapted to Turkish by Akın and Kaya (2015) were applied to the trainers. The skewness-kurtosis normality distribution test was used to determine whether the measurements were suitable for the normal distribution. According to the Skewness-Kurtosis technique, it did not show a normal distribution for the total positive perception and positive perception of the past time sub-dimensions, but showed a normal distribution for the positive perception of human nature and positive perception of the self. According to the results of the research, it can be said that the total and sub-dimension levels of the participants' positive perception scale are high. While there was no significant difference in terms of age and place of residence of the participants participating in the research, a statistically significant difference was found in terms of gender, working time, and duration of doing sports.
