The purpose of this study was to examine the structural concept of the organizational climate in college sports clubs and to develop a measurement scale that ensures reliability and validity. We conducted two studies as follows: 【Study1】: Based on previous studies, we created a scale to measure the organizational climate of college sports clubs, and conducted an exploratory examination of the factor composition of organizational climate through surveys and analyses of university students who had experience of belonging to college sports clubs. (Survey 1). Then, based on the results of the analysis, we conducted another survey and analysis targeting students who had experience of belonging to college sports clubs, and examined the validity and reliability of the structural concept of the organizational climate of the college sports clubs (Survey 2). 【Study2】: After partially modifying the measurement scale based on the results of Study 1, the validity and reliability of the scale were examined again. In addition, in order to verify the predictive validity of the scale, we analyzed the relationship between the organizational climate of the college sports clubs and the organizational commitment of the members to the clubs to which they belong. Analytical data were collected from students who had experience of belonging to a college sports club, as in Study 1 (Survey 3). The main findings are summarized as follows: We clarified 6 factors: “Warm atmosphere”, “Social contribution awareness”, “Deviation from ethics and morals”, “Control by rules”, “Fairness of penalties”, and “Acceptance of change”, as comprising the organizational climate of college sports clubs. And, as a result of the statistical analysis, the scale was confirmed to have sufficient reliability and validity.
