you have to be in the "Project Administrator" Role to be able to create sprints,versions etc..
find more details here:
there is no need to give jira administation access just to create sprints.
check the projects permission scheme and look for "Administer Projects"
i added "Project Role (Administrators)" to it.
next edit Roles in your project configuration and put individual users or groups to it you want to have the ability to create sprints. that should be enough. of course you can fine tune things there using permission schemes and roles
...It's true that there are projects in Jira; but they are merely a way to cut off issues, to tell them apart from other sections of work and to apply rules that are specific to that team (the schemes)....
