In our study 11 anthropometric measurements such as, skinfold ticknesses, circumference and width measurements were taken. Heath-Carter method was used to determine the somatotype characteristics. Of performance characteristics, standing long jump test, vertical jump test, sitting ball throwing test, 20 m. speed run test and shuttle run test were applied. The statistical analyses of the measurements were calculated by using SPSS 11.0. The mean somatotype values of the female students that participated were found as endomorphy 3,96±0.86 mesomorphy 3,65±1,14 ectomorphy 2,96±1,43 and the performance test mean values were as follows; vertical jump 17,27±4,09 cm standing long jump 94,72±16,83 cm, 20 m speed run test 4,76±0,47 sec, sitting ball throwing 78,16±23,39 cm, shuttle run test 19,19±7,37 shuttle.The results that we have reached through this study will contribute to the knowledge –available at present- about talent identification and talent selection in sports and to establishing the normative values and to benefiting the investments on sports and sportspeople at maximum level and to the studies done in this field in our country.
