Nonprofit sports organizations in China have just started to develop, so their management is not adequately standardized. In order to ensure the 5 characteristics of nonprofit sports organizations and public welfare service functions they provide, a supervision and management constraining mechanism is required to effectively control these organizations. Starting at the necessity and feasibil-ity of the assessment of nonprofit sports organizations, the authors analyzed the current situation of nonprofit sports organization assessment related researches done at home and abroad, and theoretically analyzed the modes, subjects and contents of assessment of nonprofit sports organizations by referring to the characteristics and functions of non-profit sports organizations. Through their study the authors put forward three feasible nonprofit sports organization assessment modes based mainly on the administrative assessment of the government, assessment of third party or-ganizations, and business departments in charge, whose corresponding subjects of assessment are respectively busi-ness departments in charge and media, subjects of assessment dedicatedly established for nonprofit sports organiza-tions, and every department involving with nonprofit sports organizations.
