The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship among awareness levels by analyzing the secondary education students’ cognitive, affective, psychomotor and also general awareness levels on winter sports and to compare the awareness levels found in these fields with demographic variables. 6789 students from 11 secondary education institutions in Kastamonu comprised the target population of this study, and the sample consisted of 656 students from 5 different secondary education institutions which provide different types of education. Data were collected through “Winter Sports Awareness Level Scale”, which consisted of 3 subscales and developed by the researcher. General awareness was found as α=,908 in the reliability test. The obtained alpha values were α=,887 for cognitive subscale, α=,927 for affective subscale and α=,927 for psychomotor subscale. In the data analysis’ process t Test and Variance Analysis were used for data showing normal distribution, Mann-Whitney U and Kruskal Wallis were used for data showing not normal distribution. Pearson Correlation Coefficient was calculated to determine the relationship among the subscales and the level of significance was accepted as p<0.05 in the study. Findings showed that secondary education students’ general, cognitive and psychomotor awareness on winter sports were “low level”, and their affective awareness was “mid level”. In addition, the presence of individuals engaged in sports and interested in winter sports was significantly effective on students’ general awareness levels and also cognitive, affective and psychomotor subscales. It was found that there was a significant relationship “positive high level” between secondary education students’ general awareness and cognitive and also affective awareness, “positive mid level” between their general awareness and psychomotor awareness (p<0.05). As a result, it was determined that the secondary education students’ awareness regarding winter sports was not sufficient. In order to develop awareness, information resources, inside and outside of the school are to be increased, provincial sport organization should organize encouraging activities and these activities should often to mentioned in the local media.
