Managerial competencies are the basic competencies that will help students to be successful not only in sports fields but also in situations they will encounter throughout their lives.


This study aims to explore the managerial competencies of physical education and sports teachers through metaphors and open-ended questions.


The study group of the research consisted of 50 teachers teaching in different types of schools in Uralsk city in the 2023/2024 academic year. The data were collected from the teachers who participated in the study by completing the statements "Write 3 words explaining what the managerial competence of physical education and sports teachers should be", "What are the managerial competencies that the future physical education and sports teacher should have?" and "A physical education and sports teacher is like...". Because...." statements were asked to complete the metaphor form. The data obtained were analyzed using the content analysis technique.


The most common word used by physical education and sports teachers in terms of management is "educator (f=17)", the least mentioned word is "curious (f=1)", and when the explanations of management are examined, "professional (f=30), moral (f=8), disciplined (f=5), patient (f=4), responsible (f=2) and competitive (f=1)" and when the categories of metaphors used were examined, it was determined that they consisted of "coach (f=18), role model (f=7), creative (f=7), soldier (f=6), master of education (f=6), resourceful (f=3) and cotton (f=3)".


As a result of the research, the metaphors produced by physical education and sports teachers about their managerial characteristics are similar to each other and it is seen that the perceptions of the physical education teachers participating in the research towards their future managerial views are positive.
