Abstract : Sportification of Canyoneering in France by the Association of Caving and Speleology (1980-1992). The socio-cultural differences and the stakes of professionalization.
This work deals with the process of sportification in canyoneering by the French association of caving and speleology. Making the assumption that the agents are structured in the shape of a field: sociology of P. Bourdieu is used as theoretical framework. The study is based on written and oral sources (nine interviews). The results highlight a disagreement concerning legitimacy in the introduction of canyoneering and competition. This debate reactivates the traditional oppositions between caving and speleology. In relation with the social and cultural position of the association's leaders these strategies are explained by the possibility for these agents bring up to date in an advantageous way their competences and obtaining profits in particular through certain forms of professionalization.
