The purpose of this study investigation of the effect of sport training and education on Q angle in young males and females. The Quadriceps Q angles of 240 female and 600 male subject were measured in both supine and standing positions by goniometer. It was used t-tests for statistical analyses. In this study, the average age was found to be 19.16 for women and 21.120 for men. The vast majority of participants are in the 17-22 age range. In this study, was found the mean Q angle of female and male subjects at supine position 15.710 and 13.020. On the other hand Q angle of female and male subjects at standing position were 17.050 and 14.040 respectively. The difference between mean Q angle of female and male subject was statistically significant (p<0.001). Between undergraduate study group and non-undergraduate group wasn't differences Standing Q angle and Supine Q angle statistically significant (p>0.05). Finally, the mean dominant knee Q angle of young females and males seemed to be in normal range. The high value of the knee Q angle of the dominant leg should be considered to be greater than 17 for males and 20 for females. The effect of physical activity on Q-angle should be investigated more extensively. It is thought that sport education has a decreasing effect on Q angle.
