Nombre d'articles parus dans des quotidiens soulignent qu'une plus grande place devrait être faite au Sport dans l'Education. Dans cette conférence, il s'agira tout d'abord de redéfinir les différents concepts concernés avant de mettre en évidence certains paradoxes constatés à partir de résultats de recherches récentes. L'objectif consistera à mettre clairement en évidence la priorité à accorder au développement d'une culture de l'activité physique, moins sujettes aux dérapages constatés actuellement dans le développement d'un sport ultra compétitif. L'exposé se termine par la description de pistes d'actions rassemblant tous les acteurs de la société et visant à donner un visage plus accessible à la santé que l'activité physique permet de préserver.

Within the specialist seminar, the aims of this presentation were to share a personal conception of Sport (& Exercise) Pedagogy, to illustrate some current challenges for researchers of this specific field of Sport Sciences, and to suggest some approaches to develop in the future. In the first part, an emphasis will be set on the analysis of the papers presented during the ARIS' congresses. It will be the opportunity to bridge the gap between Anglo-Saxon authors and those from the French speaking world, in order to underline the existence of a research corpus that is unknown by those who are not able to read another language than English.

Cette étude s'est réalisée auprès d'un groupe de sept gymnastes "espoirs" âgées de 12 à 16 ans dans un club de la région liégeoise. Ces jeunes filles s'entraînent entre 12 et 15 heures par semaine. Selon la période de l'année, parmi les séances d'entraînement, 2 à 7 heures sont consacrées chaque semaine à la musculation et à la préparation physique. Nous avons constaté qu'à cet âge, entrant en crise d'adolescence, les gymnastes osent se rebeller et commencent à adopter de nouveaux centres d'intérêt, notamment les sorties et les amis. Le maintien de la motivation pour le sport à cet âge est donc un défi permanent. L'étude réalisée visait à expérimenter une approche destinée à améliorer l'attitude des gymnastes à l'égard de cette partie importante de leur formation sportive. Les résultats indiquent que, en proposant des activités diversifiées et en expliquant aux filles les raisons de l'entraînement physique, elles tendent à réagir favorablement et à mieux accepter le travail physique. Dans les limites du travail, nous pouvons considérer que les entraîneurs de gymnastique pourraient introduire davantage d'approches adaptées aux attentes des adolescentes afin de maintenir l'intérêt de leurs sportives.

L'échantillon est composé de 1481 candidats masculins âgés en moyenne de 20 ans dans deux formations supérieures au Maroc et en Algérie. Les analyses factorielles en composantes principales avec rotation varimax des performances aux épreuves physiques révèlent plutôt une solution en deux composantes qui se distinguent selon la durée du travail pour produire de l'énergie: la puissance musculaire glycolytique et la puissance musculaire phosphagénique. La première composante correspond à la capacité de produire du lactate en plus de 12 secondes; elle est définie par la course de vitesse et la course de résistance. La deuxième composante correspond à la capacité de produire en moins de 7 secondes du phosphate déjà présent dans les muscles; elle est définie par les autres épreuves physiques. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND. ‘Start to run’ is a 10 weeks programme designed to people who want to resume physical activity. AIM. This study aimed to identify initial characteristics differing among people who continue to run and those who stop. METHODS. 229 subjects attending to the first lesson (W0) of the autumn session organized in 20 communities of Wallonia (French speaking part of Belgium) fulfilled a questionnaire aiming to identify their characteristics. At W10, 180 of them answered to another questionnaire (68.5% of them achieved the programme). 12 weeks after the end of the latter (W22), 54 subjects who participated to the previous step and achieved the programme answered to a third questionnaire (71.1% were still running). FINDINGS. Few differences (p ≤ .05) were identified. At W10, MG subjects started with a lower BMI, had a better perception of their economical situation, a higher confidence to run during 10 weeks, a better perception of their health status, a lower consumption of alcohol. On the other hand, it was surprising to notice that they had lower perception of the neighbourhood’s safety, representation of physical activity’s effects on health and about its advantages. At W22, MG comprised more women. Subjects of this group had a higher consumption of vegetables and tried to decrease their fat consumption in the last 2 years. They considered themselves as physically active and motivated by expectations of others, perceived a higher family and children support and saw running as reassuring and rewarding. Nevertheless, they felt to meet more stray dogs in their environment. Most of the differences correspond to the literature. Moreover, among the subjects in the DG, almost 40% were injured meaning that they would have been active without this situation. DISCUSSION. Effective physical activity resumption seems to be linked to a general health climate without overestimation of one’s competences and expectations. Recommendations are proposed for sport instructors.

BACKGROUND. Overweight and obesity in youth must be combated through a multiple approach combining management principles in nutrition and physical activity (PA). In the hospital context, medical staff seems to be more focused on nutrition. AIM. In this study, we proposed to implement a specific intervention focusing on PA in parallel with traditional paediatric and dietetic visits designed to 6-12 year-old children. METHODS. Data were collected in three steps: (1) after a visit at the hospital, subjects and their parents answered to a questionnaire (lifestyle, representation about PA) and attended to a meeting during which they received written (illustrated booklet) and oral cues about PA as well as an invitation to use a PA diary and a pedometer; (2) before the next visit (almost 8 weeks interval), they were free to apply the recommendations; (3) after the next visit to the hospital, subjects analyzed the diary with one of the researchers and answered to questions about their current lifestyle and representations about PA. 34 children respected the whole protocol. FINDINGS. Among the children and their parents, representations of PA changed between the visits (PA was no longer regarded merely as sport). Major changes were also identified in children’s lifestyle (increase of number of weekly PA, family PA, weekly PA time; decrease of inactivity time like TV or video games). Only 27 children out of 34 used the PA diary at least once (information were recorded for a mean of 18 days/child between the 2 visits – a third of the duration of the interval). The pedometer has been used by 15 children and was considered as a motivating tool. 58.5% of comments collected at the end of the second meeting were positive and emphasized the interest of the intervention; 24.6% were negative and mainly focused the PA diary). DISCUSSION. This study underlines the need to improve the family's representations about PA in paediatric and dietetic visits. It supports PA experts' integration in the staff. [less ▲]

It is believed that martial arts can produce educational apportunities for youth. Therefore, some critical success factors have to be taken into account. One of these factors is considered as the type of guidance. Hoever in martial arts, there is a lack of research examining the role of the martial arts teacher. Therefore, a study was se up to analyse different teaching approaches used in martial arts and to develop a framework aiming to identify these teaching methods. A multiple instruments research design was set up, in which 20 teachers in aikido, karate or kick-/Thai boxing were involved. All of them were observed during a training session. Moreover, they were interviewed before and afterwards. The pre-interactive interview guide included questions regarding (a) the goal of teaching, (b) the didactical approaches, (c) the traditional aspects of martial arts, and (d) the probles encountered during training. During the post-interactive interview all subjects were asked to point out specific aspects of their teaching approach and to respond to an instrument specifically developed for this study, which consists of seven dimensions to identify different teaching approach (i.e. TAMA, Teaching Approach in Martial arts framework). Based on the total scores of TAMA, martial arts teachers were classified into three groups. Those with the lowest scores were classified as representatives of a traditional teaching approach, with medium scores as teachers using an educational sporting approach and with the highest scores as those using an efficiency approach. In short, teachers using a traditional teaching methods emphasised traditional aspects and pedagogically oriented aims. Martial arts teachers situated in the educational sporting group were still focused on the traditional aspects, but considered martial arts rather more as a sport. And finally, the focus of teachers using an efficiency approach was on competition and the development of performing skills. Differences are clearly identified in the teaching approach used by teachers of different martial arts (i.e. aikido teachers use a traditional approach while kick-/Thai boxing teachers show an efficiency approach), as well as within one martial art (i.e karate teachers use all three approaches). The development of TAMA was the first onset to identify different teaching approaches in martial arts. In order to generalise the results of the present study further research is recommended.

Teachers' reflection is considered as a determining factor in physical education teacher education (PETE). Despite the emphasis that is provided to this approach, it is noteworthy that it is not proposed systematically in higher education. A specific unit focusing on reflective practice was developed at the University of Liege (Wallonia, Belgium). This paper reports the opinions of the preservice PE teachers' n = 18) as well as involved staff members (n = 3) about the process. Students completed a questionnaire after completion of their preservice programme. Staff members' reports (n =22) of their reflective practice sessions (RPS) as well as one final report focusing on the whole process were analysed. Findings showed that the opinions are mainly positive, with the staff members rating the process at a higher level than the students. If the latter emphasized the interest of the RPS, they underlined the organisational constraints and regretted the requirements dealing with the formalizing of the reflections. [less ▲]

Le sport représente la plus grande activité sociale en Europe. L'activité des 700.000 clubs sportifs des pays membres de l'Union européenne est en grande partie basée sur le travail bénévole de ses membres. Le bénévolat est reconnu comme l’une des caractéristiques spécifiques et essentielles des structures sportives européennes. Il faut souligner ici que le monde sportif est le plus grand utilisateur de travailleurs volontaires avec 35 % du bénévolat total. L’engagement et la qualité de travail des bénévoles sont souvent les clés de la réussite de tout club sportif. Ce qui motive une personne à être bénévole est complexe (Esmond,1997). Cependant, comprendre ces motivations profondes est suggéré par de nombreux auteurs comme étant un facteur primordial dans le recrutement, la sélection, le placement et la rétention des bénévoles au sein d’une organisation (Clary, Snyder & Ridge,1992 ; Cnaan & Goldberg-Glen,1991 ; Esmond,2001 ; McCurley & Lynch,1994 ; Vineyard,2001). Identifier les motivations de chaque bénévole permettrait au dirigeant de mieux cibler les tâches propres à chacun, assurant ainsi une plus grande satisfaction et un investissement plus long dans la durée (Slaughter,2002). Notre étude pilote vise, d’une part, à faire une mise au point sur les raisons principales qui poussent les bénévoles à s’engager dans ce type d’activité en Communauté Wallonie-Bruxelles et, d’autre part, de mieux cerner la propre opinion que les bénévoles ont de leur monde. Notre objectif final consiste à jeter les bases nécessaires pour effectuer une enquête à grande échelle. Un total de 224 questionnaires orientés sur le vécu de chaque bénévole a ainsi été collecté. Les réponses furent encodées sous formes de variables binaires, continues ou catégorielles. L’étude met en évidence 3 principales motivations au bénévolat sportif : (1) aider les autres (accord très élevé, 94% de réponses positives), (2) partager sa passion pour le sport (accord très élevé, 85% de réponses positives) et (3) se socialiser grâce au contact avec d’autres personnes (accord élevé, 71% de réponses positives). A partir de nos résultats, chaque sujet consacrerait en moyenne 8,8h par semaine au bénévolat. Au vu des études menées dans le monde du bénévolat et des résultats de notre étude pilote, il semblerait opportun de s’intéresser encore davantage aux bénévoles et à leurs difficultés, de comprendre la diversité des contextes dans lesquels ils évoluent. Nous proposons, enfin, de les impliquer dans le développement de stratégies susceptibles de garantir la pérennité de leur action et de l’idéal qui les anime. [less ▲]

According to the changes of the society that occurred during the last decades of the 20th century, new sport operators grew in an answer to the modified expectations of the people. In parallel to sport clubs, many other structures began to invite people to move in agreement with defferent values: independent non market associations, private compagnies, non organized free sport. While analyzing themes of Sport pedagogy research, it seems that physical education is the major focus (55.6%) of the papers presented in the ARIS's conferences while studies focused on coaching represented only 18.7%. On the other hand, researches that are analyzing the teaching-learning process in leisure sport are surprisingly seldom even there are more studies aiming to better understand how physical activity can be increased in communities, for example. After a shor description of the evolution of the sport structures and the development of the current array of operators, a second section focuses on the motives of participants. The next part underlines the specific ompetences of the physical educators involved in the leisure sport sector. The final and main part proposes an overview of some studies that has been achieved in this area at the University of Liege. The conclusion provides some recommendations for researchers. [less ▲]

There are many reasons explaining why students choose one professional project and/or an academic programme. Usually, they consider higher education according to various aspects focusing on the content of the programme as well as on professions to which the latter leads. This study is in the field on comparative education. It offers a comprehensive reading of two education systems in a spirit of openness and expansion of knowledge. With inspiration from two studies conducted in the education of physical educators in very different cultural contexts (Research Group MJS, 1993, for Algeria – Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire, 2003, for French-speaking Belgium), we have assumed that the students’ motives for registering in studies in physical education should differ considerably. The purpose of this research has therefore been to determine the reasons motivating students to begin a physical education programme at the university or at a non university context. Our research was based, firstly, on the analysis of official texts concerning the organization of higher education in the field of physical education and, secondly, on data collected from the actions involved in four educational institutions, two in the Algiers region and two in the Liege region. In both cultural contexts, one institution belonged to one university and the other one was organized in a non university context. Our results relate to a total sample of 290 subjects (40 members of teaching staffs, 108 students and 142 graduates). The staff members were interviewed while the subjects of two other groups have responded to questionnaires. The Arabic version of each instrument was translated from an original French version. One expert has assured the validity check. In this paper, we are focusing our attention on the analysis of the responses provided by the three types of actors to a question aiming to identify, through four levels Lickert scales, the degree of importance accorded by subject to nine reasons of registration for studies in physical education. Answer were encoded in a computer database and processed using the Statistica software (Stat Soft, 2006). No significant difference was identified when comparing the answers of respondents. However, we noticed that the love of sport and the desire to do sport belonged to the most important reasons for the registration of the new students for training programs in physical education. Cultural context does not seem to affect the opinions of the subjects. [less ▲]
