Process to design and develop a protocol for sportpersonship and fair play promotion intervention is described in this paper, the posterior study to check the influence of the interventión is related too. In a regular basis we can observe that young soccer players are more oriented to attitudes towards victory and enjoyment and they are not oriented to agression. The intervention was not succesfull to change the orientation of the attitudes but was succesfull in to relativize the mesure of the attitudes of young soccer players with a high tendence to describe themselves as very high qualifications in positive social attitudes and to hide negativelly attitudes.
