The data was analyzed by the SPSS program. T test, one -way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and descriptive statistical methods were used in analysis. Consequently, a significant difference was found out between the internet usage habits of students doing sports and not doing sports. It was studied out that students doing sports have internet usage habits more than students not doing sports. Additively, a significant difference was examined between the average points of internet usage habits of students having sports club licences compared to the students having school licences. It was found out students having sport club licences have internet usage habits highly.
