Sports risk management is essential as it prepares for a safe sports programme and allows sports organization to minimize legal liability and enhance their organization’s reputation. Sports risk management’s intent is to prevent and minimize accidents and mishaps in sports. Developed countries such as Australia and the United Kingdom have practiced the standard model of risks management since 1999. This indicates that the sports risk management model is essential for any organization that offers or implements programmes for sports activities, and demonstrates the need for a standard model. However, there is no standard risk management practices model employed by the trainers, lecturers, or the administration of Teacher Education of Malaysia to ensure zero risk in sports, as well as increase public involvement in sports. As such, this study focuses on the dominant sports risks management construct, differences in demography to Sport Risk Management Practices (SRMP). Respondents to this study are 39 Institute Pendidikan Guru Malaysia (IPGM) lecturers and 120 IPGM athletes. The IPGM lecturers group is comprised of 32 males and 7 females. Respondents are lecturers who are teaching in the Teacher Education Institutes all over Malaysia. While the athletes group is comprised of 67 males and 53 females teacher trainees who are undergoing training from the centres throughout Malaysia. A Rasch descriptive and inferential method of analysis is used with Winsteps software. The findings of the SRMP construct include identification, implementation, operational choice and implementation. Through factor analysis, it is found that the results meet the criteria set by the Rasch Model and are unidimensional. Findings indicate that the dominant construct is the implementation constructs, and there are no differences in perception between lecturers and the athletes for the rest of the constructs. This study concludes that SRMP has been identified, and confirms that the constructs are bias free of the perception between the trainers and athletes for each SRMP construct.
