The target population of the study was created by coaches working as Class A, B, C, D and E while the sample of the study was selected by 176 coaches who voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. The Life Satisfaction Questionnaire was used as a data collection tool. Portable IBM SPSS Statistics v20 software package was used in terms of analysis of data obtained. "The Kolmogorov-Smirnov Test" was applied in order to decide whether data has normal distribution and "ANOVA-Homogeneity of variance" was applied to test the homogeneity of variances and it is observed that data is homogeneous and has a normal distribution. After the earlier analysis, it was decided to use parametric test methods for statistical analysis. The descriptive statistics and one-way variance analysis were applied in data analysis.
