The objectives of this study were: to analyze the decisional profile of high school students in team sports through the questionnaire CETD and to compare the results of the three scales of the questionnaire taking into account the level of experience in the sport and the gender. The participants were 35 (19 males and 16 females) High School students (M = 16.48; SD = .89) from a public school in Cartagena (Region of Murcia). The main conclusion obtained is that the players’ decisional profiles shows a form of a “V,” obtaining profiles in “V” more closed in the subjects with more experience. In addition, there were significant differences in the variable experience with the Perceived Decisional Competence scale questionnaire (p = .03). There were non significant differences with the variable gender or the interaction between gender and experience and the scales of the questionnaire.
