This study aimed to examine in detail the representation level and capability of Turkey within the organizational structures of the umbrella organizations that carry out and coordinate the international activities of official school and university sports organizations in different countries of the world by associating them with other countries. This study was carried out by the document analysis approach of the qualitative research design. In the scope of the research, between January 2022 and April 2022, the websites, documents printed annually, and main statuses of the three umbrella organizations that coordinate the official school and university sports organizations in different countries of the world at the international level were examined. These umbrella organizations are International University Sports Federation, International School Sport Federation, and European University Sports Association. As a result of this study carried out by the document analysis approach of the qualitative research design, it has been observed that the level of country representation in international organizations and the rates of hosting international activities are in parallel with each other. It has been determined that 80% of the ten countries with the highest level of representation among the three international organizations are also the countries that host the most international organizations. On the other hand, it is an inevitable fact to say that countries with representatives in the senior management units of organizations (such as the President, Vice-President, and Secretary- General) have come to a more advantageous position compared to other countries in hosting international activities.
