The aim of this paper is to analyze the relationship between physical activity and social self-concept in young people who practice some physical activity and young people who don’t. The research, developed with 476 subjects (292 Spanish and 184 Brazilian) between the ages of 19 and 30, attended to the different ages of the subjects, their gender, their nationality and the frequency of the sport practice. A questionnaire of 32 items was designed to this end. We carried out descriptive analysis, mean differences, analysis of variance (ANOVA) and corre-lations. The results show that there are no differences in the social self-concept between those who do some sport and those who don’t; the social self-concept of the Brazilian youngsters is similar to that of the Spanish youngsters; and for both men and women the social self-concept is the same.
