dc.description.abstractIn this article the sports pastoral in Managua, Nicaragua started by the Our Lady of Guadalupe Christian Life Community and supported by the local Jesuit parish is described and research with participants is shared that was conducted by the sociology department at the Universidad CentroAmericana. The members of the CLC arrived at the idea for the football league for adolescent males and young men ages 14-25 while they were trying to think of ways to reach the young people in their community, particularly those who were socially excluded and at-risk. According to the participants, playing in the league and participating in mandatory workshops had a positive impact on their lives, drawing them away from bad habits such as alcohol and drug abuse, helping them to make friends and expand their social network, pulling them away from violent situations and helping them to adopt positive values such as coexistence, respect, solidarity, and tolerance.|Keywords: at-risk youth, Christian Life Community, poverty, social exclusion, sports pastoralen_US
