Abstract—previous studies have identified initial components including items. This paper therefore, aims toidentify and verify the components and items of competencies for sports managers in Physical Education and Sports Centres in Isfahan City, Iran.

The sample size was 250 managers, selected randomly from a research population of 700 sports managers. The findings of this study also showed the interviews and Delphi iterations with a baseline mean of 3.00 to confirm remaining items and components whereas EFA and PCA were then employed to construct the final required competency. As a result indicated nine components of required competencies including 62 items in the last iteration were finally confirmed and validated with Cronbach's alpha (0.967).
