  3. Abstract:

    \r\n The present paper explore the connections between violence manifestations in sport (various and mixed factors connected to violence patterns often generated by mass media), identifying actions which could support the prevention of this highly overspreading phenomenon in the society. No matter the country, no matter the individuals or the groups, violence appear to lead to escalating violence in schools, media, and even popular culture trends such as gaming or internet-based socializing. Media, both written and audio-visual, provides information with respect to different manifestations of this phenomenon.

    \r\nThis paper addresses various types of behavior and forms of violence, often associated with physical education and sport. Prevention is a key ingredient in order to counteract the invasive and durable influence of media regarding violence associated to sport. Coordinated efforts adopted by schools, sports clubs, as well as parents and local communities prove that violence can be reduced and the young generation can be educated in the spirit of tolerance and fair play, starting from recent legal steps observed in the Romanian national legislation.
