This study was designed to evaluate the competency level of coaches at the higher institutions' sports competitions organized by the Universities Sports Council of Malaysia. Multi-dimensional model of leadership behaviors and models of coaching effectiveness were used as the basis for the theoretical framework. A total of 322 student-athletes comprising 183 (57.2%) men and 137 (44.8%) women were participated in the questionnaire survey. Researchers have adapted the Coaching Competency Scale for data collection. The results of this study indicate that the coaches' competency levels did not differ significantly by gender and performance of student-athletes, but it did differ significantly by type of sport, between team and individual sports. The information from this study may help coaches to some extent in planning strategies for coaching athletes to ensure the effectiveness of its role as a coach.
