CORREIA, Carlus Augustus Jourand; SILVA, José Cláudio Sooma  e  SOARES, Antonio Jorge Gonçalves. College Vasco da Gama Notes for considering the interlinking of school cultures with sports. Perspectiva [online]. 2017, vol.35, n.1, pp.188-213. ISSN 2175-795X.

Sport, and more specifically, the practice of sports in Brazil, are elements considered by society as essential to the construction of values and citizenship, as is schooling. In addition, the social imaginary of the athlete shows that in Brazil sport is often seen as a professional opportunity, and many young people are encouraged to enter athletic training programs. In this process, many youth need to reconcile school routines with sports routines and often confront difficulties doing so. The article presents the results of a study on the education of young high-performance athletes at the Colégio Vasco da Gama school, which is associated to the private sports club with the same name. Based principally on the use of ethnographic research tools (semi-structured interviews, and questionnaires) and on the analysis of official documents, the purpose of the article was to identify connections of school culture with sports activities at this educational institution. The research results suggest that the relationship between the school and the club interfere decisively in the knowledge and practices that are constructed in the daily activities through the penetration of sport elements in school space. Moreover, a sense of belonging to the school institution was identified by means of sports language.
