The measurements were taken in accordance with the techniques prescribed by the International Biological Program. The length measurement was performed with a Martin-type anthropometer and a weight of ± 100 gr digital weighing. Participants wear swimwear in the measurements. Findings: For anthropometric measurements, there was a significant difference between the genders of elbow knee circumference and breast depth (p<0.05). Somatotype values in girls was found with values of 4.7-5.1-3.0 as mesomorphic -endomorph and in males was found with values of- 4.2-5.7-2.8 as endomorfic mesomorph.
