The purpose of the present research is investigating the reasons why primary school students attend sport activities and what values they gain as a result of their attendance. Semi-structured interview form was conducted on 98 students, studying at Kamile Gurkan Primary School in the provincial centre of Isparta. Collected data were transferred into computer in written form first and thereafter, analyzed using the descriptive analysis method, which is a qualitative research technique. In order to provide reliability, two experts were consulted. The numbers of consensus and dissensus were detected in comparisons and the reliability of the research was calculated as 88%. According to the findings, most of the male students prefer football (n=48), while most female students prefer gymnastics (n=16). Male students believe that they gain values, such as friendship, sedulity, tolerance, benevolence, achievement and honesty from football, while female students believe they gain values, such as sedulity, happiness, responsibility, achievement, acclaim and virtue from gymnastics. Additionally, primary school students gain different values as they do sport and most students do sport for a healthy life. Accordingly, primary school students believe in the necessity of living healthy and gain implicit values as they engage in sport.
