The focus of this study was to identify the competencies needed to manage athletic clubs and to determine if differences exist in required competencies regarding organizational size. A random sample of 264 managers participated in the study; there were 83 in Group I, 95 in Group II, and 86 in Group III. A one-way analysis of variance was employed for hypothesis testing, Tukey’s ω method was utilized for comparing rejected hypotheses, and factor analysis was used for clustering competency areas. Based on the findings of this study, manager competencies have been identified and a difference does exist in managing varying sizes of athletic clubs.
