Due to low number of population, the total count sampling was used. In addition the data boards 2013 was collected.

Athletics, budget , trainers , referees introduced as input indexes and sport for all, sport championship , sport events and educational activities introduced as output indexes. In order study of boards efficiency C C P and B C C output axis, Kolmogorov-Smirnov test , Wilcoxon test and correlation test of spearman were used. D E A solver and SPSS.20 software also were used analyze data. Results showed between inputs sports boards with C C R efficiency there was negative and significant relationship and between outputs boards with C C R efficiency there was not a significant relationship. Also the results showed between out puts sport for all with B C C efficiency positive and significant relationship was observed.
