Immersion dans un club de plongée
L’engagement dans une communauté de loisir
The study examines the nature of the bonds between people in an associative diving club. The speci c characteristics of this activity – in particular the risks attached to its practice – lead to the constant strengthening of the bonds between the divers at all times and in particular during the learning phases. Then, as they keep bene tting from the commitment of volunteer tutors, they are led to feel indebted and, in turn, to commit themselves, thereby taking part in establishing or maintaining a community of leisure.
