To develop the concept of athletic knowledge management, the current study recommends the necessity of adopting the concept of athletic knowledge management and reducing the budgets of this project by the upper management in the sports environment. Moreover, management of knowledge creation should be regarded as the primary responsibility of knowledge athletes, workers, and technicians and accomplished through the adoption of better practices, collaboration, and interpersonal interaction. The study also recommends classifying the workers upon their knowledge, experience, behaviors, and practices. Furthermore, knowledge-sharing strategies ensure that athletes, workers, and technicians have access to the correct information. Finally, the study recommends providing safe, stable, and programmed conditions to all courses that lack development and improvement.
