The research method in this research was descriptive and correlational conducted using survey method. The statistical population of this research includes all official employees working in 2016 in the selected sports federations who were 200 people. The sample size based on the Morgan table was decided to be 127 people. Descriptive and inferential statistical methods were used for analyzing the data.

In the descriptive method, the underlying variables of the level of education, years of service and age were examined. For the inferential analysis of the main hypothesis that a relationship exists between organizational learning and organizational citizenship behavior, Pearson correlation coefficient test was used. According to the results of testing the main research hypothesis, there is a significant relationship between the components of organizational learning variable, that is, between personal capabilities of mental models of common ideals and systemic attitudes with organizational citizenship behavior variable in selected sports federations.

Only among the components of collective learning and organizational citizenship behavior variable there is not a significant relationship in the selected sports federations. The correlation coefficient between organizational learning variable and organizational citizenship behavior is 0.28. The relationship between two variables at 95% confidence level (significance level 0/5) is confirmed. It means that there is a relationship between organizational learning and organizational citizenship behavior in sports federations, and organizations continually create new knowledge to achieve their goals and ultimately change their behaviors based on new knowledge and insights.
