PERCEIVED FACTORS INFLUENCING ORGANISATION AND ADMINISTRATION OF SPORTS IN SENIOR HIGH SCHOOLS IN CENTRAL REGION

ABSTRACT 

Organisation  and  administration  of  sports  at  the  Senior  High  School  (SHS) level plays an important role in giving recognition to sports in Ghana. Sports in SHSs  is  however,  bedevilled  with  infrastructural,  personnel,  funding,  and motivation challenges which renders its organisation and administration a mirage. This study investigated the organisation and administration of sports in SHSs in the Central Region. The study employed the descriptive survey design. A total of 137 (Male = 97, Female = 40) headmasters/mistresses, heads of department, and P.E.  teachers  were  sampled  through  stratified,  simple  random,  quota  purposive and  convenience  sampling  techniques,  from  SHSs  in  the  Central  Region.  Aresearcher-developed questionnaire was used to gather data. All the data collected were  tested  using  Pearson  Product-Moment  Correlation.  The  study  revealed statistically  significant  relationships  between  availability  of  P.E.  teachers, funding, motivation for the P.E. teacher, and organisation and administration of sports,  but  no  statistically  significant  relationship  between  lack  of  facilities  and equipment  and  intramural  programmes,  and  organisation  and  administration  of sports. It was concluded that having enough and qualified P.E. teachers, adequate facilities  and  equipment,  consistent  intramural  programmes,  funds,  and  well structured  motivational  measures  will  improve  sports  in  schools.  It  was recommended  that  Ghana  Education  Service  (GES)  should  post  enough  P.E. teachers to all SHSs in the Central Region. Headmasters/mistresses should make adequate  budgetary  allocations  for  the  provision  of  sports  facilities  and equipment,  motivation  of  P.E.  teachers,  and  organisation  of  intramural programmes.
