Objective: to examine the relationship between tolerant behavior and patient behavior characteristics of students aged 9-14 who are educated at primary and secondary school levels. Method: the sample consists of 316 students selected by simple random method, studying in various primary and secondary schools in the province of Kayseri under the Ministry of National Education. Tolerant behavior, patient behavior scale, and Personal Information Form prepared by the researcher, were used as data collection tools in the study. The data obtained from the Personal Information Form were statistically analyzed with the SPSS 22.0 package program. In the comparison of data between two variables, t-test was applied in independent groups, and one-way analysis of variance was applied in the comparison of three or more variables. In addition, Pearson Moments Correlation test and regression analysis were applied. Results: according to the age variable of the students, the scores of the students participating in sports from the tolerant behavior scale showed a significant difference. In addition, a significant difference was found in the scores of the students from the patient behavior scale according to their participation in sports. When the gender and grade variables of the students were examined, no significant difference was observed. In addition, when the correlation analysis of the tolerant behavior and patient behavior scales was examined, it was determined that the relationship was positive and it was determined that the relationship was higher in students participating in sports. As a result, the state of doing sports has affected many areas as well as showing tolerant behavior and patient behavior. Conclusion: for this reason, more environments can be created for primary and secondary school students to be intertwined with sports. In addition, it is thought that by increasing various sports activities and activities in schools, students who can keep bilateral relations more positive, respect their teachers, be more tolerant and patient in the face of problems, have a high level of socialization, and have a sense of belonging to the group can be raised.
