Abstract

This work investigates the relationship between sports clubs for young people and the production of social capital. This article analyzes 34 interviews with people who work in some sport associations for young of the lower Friuli, such as: parents, kids, coaches and sports administrators. For this people the great difficulty of keeping original, solidarity and prosocial type motivations alive often emerges in a context in which the association’s life is rigidly governed by bureaucratic rules and where associates and families do not always help and sustain each other. In spite of this, the world of sport that emerges from this analysis still seems to be perceived as being a place that provides an opportunity to meet and enjoy social commitment.
