This study examined influence of human capacity and material resources development on sports organizations effectiveness in Lagos State. A sample size of two hundred (male, n =63; female, n = 137) respondents from Lagos State Sports Commission in Lagos State were used. A self-structured questionnaire was the instrument adopted for the study. The test-retest reliability value obtained for the instrument using Pearson Product Moment Correlation Co-efficient was 0.89. Data from the study were analyzed with the use of frequency counts percentages and bar chart for demographic data and Chi-square for the variables of the study. Findings of the study revealed that collaborative learning, human capacity development (collaborative learning and mixture of technological support for learning), material resources (Facilities, Equipment and Funding) when taken together and equipment and funding would influence organizational effectiveness in sports organizations in Lagos State. Based on the findings, it was recommended that there should be better funding policy for sports organizations in Lagos State to remove many of the constraints hindering the growth and development of sports. Leaving sports development in the hands of the Government alone would not be fruitful because sport is now a bride with many suitors, therefore sports programmes should be well branded to attract private sector participation, partnership, support and sponsorship.
