The article aims to analyze the authors and research networks that have dedicated themselves, in the international academic environment, to studying professionals’ training to work with sport in a non-school context. Of a quanti-qualitative and state-of-knowledge type, it is based on the precepts of critical-documental analysis and bibliometrics. Sixty-four articles from 25 different countries were mapped. There is a movement, albeit timid, indicating the search for internationalization, with articles published in other countries and collaborative networks among authors. Some characteristics of those collaborations are shown by joint publication, teaching disciplines in other institutions, academic events, institutional collaboration agreements, split master’s and doctoral studies, postdoctoral advice, and dialogue with other areas of knowledge.
