The study examines the nature of the bonds between people in an
associative diving club. The specific 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
benefitting 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.
