L’impact du lien réciproque responsable d’équipe-joueurs dans les pratiques sportives estudiantines de compétition de niveau académique en Lorraine : une illustration par le volley-ball

Abstract : What characterizes the links between a person in charge of team and his/her players? First of all, can one precisely define the roles of the person in charge of a team? Can any student claim this status? What does one know about these players’ expectations when they integrate a “French Federation of University Sport” team? Such are the questions from which I undertook this work of thesis. I sought answers to these questions among various sources related to the themes of sports and sports team. Between Education, Sociology, sometimes History, or even Psychology not being never well far, I chose an interdisciplinary corpus because the subject is eminently transdisciplinary. The study focuses on the power and the impact of the link between the person in charge of a team and his/her players, on the students’ practice in university sport championship, at a regional level from an individual or a collective point of view. What is at stake in this relation? What are the other potential levers of influence of this link? How to understand the environment and the challenges to control it? When does one become legitimate in a role of leader? To answer these questions, I shed light on the concepts and the basic and subjacent notions which these questions imply, while trying to underline the social challenges related to each scale of analysis. That is nonetheless always compared to the studied environment - the Sport academic competition – because this specific environment, requires an organization and a particular operation that is different from the other patterns of practice. Thus, this research initially shows the specific characteristics of this environment (the roles and missions of the institutions of Lorraine, the organizations, entities etc). Then, I reconsider the autobiographical dimension of my investment in this work of thesis. Indeed, this reflection over the years generated a progressive and laminated immersion of my commitments and responsibilities in this field. This position of expert-reflective obviously had an influence on the orientations of my questionings and thus on my research. Then, after having defined what I mean by “sporting practice” and searched the multiple characteristics specific to the person having the student status I approach the historical dimension of the link between Sport and Education. I then defined the principal concepts used for this study. I continue with the methodological dimension of the research - The following part of my work mentions collected data analyses and it is followed by the results which emerged during this first work. After the presentation of these crucial factors of research, I formulate different definitions, projects and actions which, for me, are relevant in regard to the study carried out. Indeed, what is a person in charge of team? With which expectations is he confronted? What is its place in the student's sporting environment? How can he/she evolve? Which are his/her specific skills? How to help him/her? Here are a set of questions for which I tried to formulate answers, in particular by creating a training session over a weekend, tested in September 2013. Before concluding on this work, I bring some suggestions of partnerships to develop the accompaniment of the people in charge of teams with the actors of Sport in Lorraine and, at the national level, with the French Federation of University Sport. This field study that I intended accessible, objective and reliable is reinforced by my precise knowledge of its context (eight years of associative experiments of which the responsibility for a female team of volley ball), which allowed a precise comprehension of the challenges in various scales. Daily observations, “off” conversations, combined with the analysis of problems encountered over the years in the performance of my duty of person in charge of a team, generated this motivation to theorize, to understand, then to act on this environment
