The purpose of this study was to investigate the empowerment indices in sport coaches in Urmia. This research was a survey and a field study. Multistage random sampling was used. The data were gathered by a standard questionnaire of empowerment index evaluation (D. Scott & T. Jaffe): the reliability = 94.2% and validity = 90.5%. The sample included 155 male and female sport coaches who were selected from 491 coaches in Urmia. Results showed that total empowerment index was 71.6% (a high and very high level). An increase in coaching career and educational level resulted in a significant decrease in identification, appreciation and job health (P<0.05). Coaches' morale level was the most effective and communication development was the least effective factor in total empowerment index (P<0.001, ? = 0.22, 0.1).
