The purpose of the study was to identify sports management practices as a basis for developing strategies for effective secondary school sports management in Abia State. To achieve the purpose of the study, seven specific objectives, each with a corresponding research question were posed and five hypotheses postulated. The cross-sectional survey and, Research and Development (R&D) designs were used for the study. The subjects consisted of the 127 physical Education teachers in Abia State owned secondary schools. Three research instruments were used for data collection. These were the twenty-seven item management practice of school sports questionnaire (MPSSQ) and a 29 item Strategies for effective secondary school sports management questionnaire (SESSSMQ) both used for quantitative data collection as well as an 11 item Focus group discussion guide (FGDG) used for qualitative data collection. Seven experts in health and physical education, Management studies and measurement and evaluation validated the instruments. The reliability coefficient of the MPSSQ was computed using Kuder-Richardson (KR-21) formula. The qualitative data collected were analysed qualitatively while data collected from the MPSSQ were analysed using frequencies and percentages. Mean scores were employed in analysing data collected from the SESSSMQ while chi-square statistic was used for verifying the 5 null hypotheses. The results of the study showed that sports were neither well funded nor properly managed. The findings revealed that the schools did not manage sports facilities and equipment effectively. The findings also showed that communities were not adequately involved in secondary school sports management. The findings indicated that both athletes and coaches were more or less not motivated in the secondary schools. The findings of the study also showed that friendly relationships existed between sports teachers and other teachers. The finding further revealed that sports management practices adopted by the schools were statistically significantly dependent on gender, work experience and school location as well as school type. Lastly, based on the findings, the study developed strategies for effective management of sports in the secondary schools. The developed strategies covered five important areas in sports management viz: fund management, facilities and equipment, community involvement, motivation of athletes and coaches and cooperation between sports teachers and other subject teachers.
