 Dr. Maha spoke on the first day about the concepts of sports management, which is known as the art of coordinating the elements of work and sports products in sports bodies and directing it in order to achieve these bodies and direct all efforts within the sports body to achieve its goals, as the goals are also required to be determined in the sports administration, but there are other important elements representing the pillars of any successful sports administrative work.
