This research has the character of a transversal study with the aim of analyzing and determining the correlations of latent dimensions of respondents who perform the functions of top managers in sports clubs in the West Herzegovina County. As top-level managers in sports organizations, they monitor and perform all processes in business and sports functions, analyze them, and make appropriate decisions based on the analysis. The results of this research showed that the method of main components in the top managers from sports clubs from the West Herzegovina County extracted 10 isolated factors, which exhaust 76.1% of the total valid variance. Orthogonal projections of vectors of manifest variables on vectors of latent dimensions are presented in the structure matrix. By analyzing the structure of variables, we see that ten isolated factors have been singled out, each of which in its own way explains and hypothetically covers certain areas that are interesting for this research. It is evident that all ten isolated factors are dominated by variables and answers that hypothetically cover the work space and competencies of top management, and that the basic focus of the respondents is on the organizational factors of the club to which they belong.
