The focus of this study was to identify the curricular preparation needs for sport club managers and to determine if there are differences in the curricular preparation needs for sport club managers in regard to organizational size. A questionnaire comprised of 30 curricular need statements was mailed to 500 randomly selected sport club managers; 264 responded. There were 83 in Group I, 95 in Group II, and 86 in Group III. A one-way analysis of variance test was employed for hypothesis testing. Tukey’s ω method was utilized for group comparison of rejected hypotheses, and factor analysis was employed for clustering of the curricular preparation needs. Marketing was the top rated curricular need. Two curricular need statements rejected were “program planning for youths” and “research interpretation and utilization,” and five clusters were extracted from factor analysis. Based on the findings of this study, curricular preparation needs for sport club managers have been identified; however, there seems to be little difference in curricular preparation needs in regard to organizational size.
