This study is intended to state the difference between the preferred and perceived actual leadership behaviours of the coaches by the players of the Turkish Young National Team. It is also intended to determine the relationship between the satisfaction level of the athletes and the leadership behaviour of the coaches. To provide data, both Athletic Satisfaction Questionnaire (ASQ) ( Riemer & Chelladurai, 1998) and Leadership Scale for Sports (LSS) of Chelladurai have been applied (Chelladurai & Saleh, 1980). The research evaluates the leadership behavior in 5 different aspects. 7 dimensions of athletes’ satisfaction are evaluated in our study. The data has been evaluated with the help of SPSS program and Frequency T Test, ANOVA analysis and Bonferroni test have been applied. As a result, when the preferences of young players are considered, trainers who will work with this age group are required to show interest in the personal development of the players, help them out of their problems and give them social support. The athlete’s way of perceiving actual the leadership behaviour has certain differences in the aspects of both democratic behaviours, autocratic behaviours and positive feedback due to his personal qualities. The leadership behaviours which are perceived by the athletes are determined by the qualities that the trainer has.
