The postulated hypotheses were tested at 0.05 alpha level using Pearson’s Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient. The results (0.320 > 0.147 at df = 142), (0.240> 0.147 at df = 142) and (0.310> 0.147 at df = 142) respectively revealed that Facilities, Organizational Pattern and community involvement are correlates of management of recreational sport violence. I was concluded that availability of Facilities, good organizational pattern and community involvement leads to reduction or eradication of violence during recreational sports events.
