The aim of this study is to determine the subjective well-being levels of high school students in association with their
participation in school sports and to examine whether participating in school sports has an impact on subjective
well-being. The research place is the high schools in Erzincan city centre. The sample contains 1004 adolescents
including 479 female and 525 male students randomly selected according to the school types. The data of this study
are collected by using ''Subjective Well-Being Scale'' (High School Form) and ''Personal Information Form.''
Research data are analysed using the SPSS 22.0 statistical programme. Mann Whitney U test and Kruskal Wallis H
test are used for the analysis of the data. As a result, it is observed that participation in school sports increases
subjective well-being level of students. Subjective well-being level of female students who participate in school
sports is higher. School types affect the subjective well-being levels. It is found that the subjective well-being level of
the students who do not participate in school sports decreases as the grade of the student increases. The students with
