Abstract

Social relations - as social capital - work by providing and facilitating information for the individuals involved. In the context of voluntary organizations, this could imply that members acquire more knowledge and develop stronger commitments to social and political issues. At a most general level, this simply means that those active in any voluntary organization are richer in social capital than those outside. Sports correspond with social capital not only as a self-confidence form but also as a form of respect for rules and the other. Sport is everyone’s and it becomes the mirror of the social facts. It has a key role for the building of social capital because we live in an era absorbed by the image we have or depicted of the world around. It has been defined by Stuart Hall as the “culture circuit”. In this sense, social culture is understood more as a set of practices in which people are participants and give to objects and events, a meaning.
