Fig. The ICC Organizational Relationship

In general, Community Sports Clubs (CSC) develop cooperative relationships by sharing human resources and exchanging information, but when it comes to interests, CSC may compete with each other because they have similar target groups in the community. Because of these constraints, the CSC interacts in ways that embody Interdependent, Cooperation, and Confrontation (ICC). This leads to a continual alteration in organizational relationship based on resource flow (Fig.:Lin and Sakuno, 2015, p.43)
