The aim of this study is to investigate the attention and decision-making characteristics of 11-16 years old children who play Badminton as a sportive recreation activity. In the 2018-2019 academic year, 201 secondary school and high school students with a mean age of 13.18 ± 1.76 studying in different schools in the province of Muğla and engaged in Badminton sport as a recreational recreation activity joined to this survey voluntarily. In addition to the personal information form prepared by the researcher, Bourdon Attention Test (1955) was used to determine attention levels, and Adolescent Decision-Making Scale (EIBS) developed by Mann, Harmoni and Power (1989) was used to determine decision-making skills. Frequency analysis, Kruskal Wallis Test, t test, ANOVA and pearson correlation and regression analysis were used to evaluate the data. As a result, it was found that the level of attention and self-esteem of the students differed significantly according to family income. It is a remarkable finding that students, whose monthly income is low, have high levels of self-esteem. Significant relationship was found between students' sleep time and indifference dimension of decision making. We can say that students who have a short sleep time act unconcerned when they need to decide. We can say that the age, sports age and income level of the students affect the attention level of students. It has been found that attention quality decreases as the indifference and avoidance of responsibility, which are sub-dimensions of decision-making skills, increase.
