Le monopole des fédérations sportives françaises comme obstacle au développement des services marchands d’initiation aux pratiques.

Abstract : French sports federations' monopoly as an obstacle to the development of market services for initiation to practices. The case of kitesurfing and the French Free Flight Federation (FFVL) Sumary This text aims to report on the way the State's sports policy in France tends to grant sports federations an absolute monopoly on all forms of organizing activities officially placed under their supervision. As for kiteboarding, it is particularly important to show that such a monopoly tends to place heavy constraints on entrepreneurs who sell introductory services to the practice of kitesurfing so they become providers of sports license holders. Based on a study of the social and economic effects of the "École française de kite" label, awarded by the French Free Flight Federation, the analysis seeks to highlight a relatively invisible consequence of the "delegation of power" the governing federations enjoy, namely allowing them to have a controlling influence on small and medium-sized companies in the "sports leisure" sector and on their customers.
