[en] In this paper, the first aspect to keep in mind deals with the student-athletes’status. Indeed, the European culture is rather different than the North America’s one. US students, for example, have many advantages to become top athletes. Those who are selected in school, college or university teams are well supported by their institution. The NCCA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) is trying to limit the participation of the freshmen to the university competitions in order to provide them a better teaching context. An overview of the situation of studentathletes in 12 European countries revealed that not all of them have developed a positive climate in favour of their student-athletes.
