The main objective was to know the differences in anger levels in athletes and physical activity practitioners in function of family support. The sample consisted of 496 Spanish athletes and physical activity practitioners. To measure the different variables an ad hoc sociodemographic questionnaire, the Trait-State Anger Expression Inventory (STAXI-II) and the Oviedo Scale of Infrequency of Response (INF-OV), were used. The results showed lower levels of temperament in athletes and physical activity practitioners who perceived that their family supported them “without doubt”. On the other hand, there was no covariation of the type of physical-sporting practice, the sport success (local, national, regional, international) on family support and anger levels in athletes. On the other hand, when the level of competition (local, regional and international) was examined, no covariation was found neither. However, it was found covariation with the competition at the national level, finding differences in internal anger control, in favour of those who perceived support "without doubt" from their family. It was concluded that family support is shown as a protective variable of obtaining higher levels of anger in athletes and physical activity practitioners, which is influenced by those athletes who compete at the national level.
