In this research we wanted to ascertain the percent of the athletes that consume alcohol.
In that purpose we made a research on 202 football players, 104 basket-ball players,
120 hand ball players and 33 volleyball players. All of them play in the first Macedonian league.
We applied questionnaire with 6 questions and different possible answers. After that,
we spanned 2 test and its significance. From the obtained results we can tell that 34% of
basket-ball and 30% of volleyball players drink 1-2 a week, which is too much in our oppinian,
because they are first-class athlets. However, most of them (in all 4 groups) first time
consume alcohol when they were 16 or older. We can tell that in five out of six questions there
are statistically significant differences between the groups on level p<0.01 and p<0.05.
