The present study addresses group cohesion in the basketball sports team, intending to optimize their performance and the need to achieve group efficiency in collective sports. In this team belonging to the sports team Virgen Felizola García, from Santiago de Cuba, difficulties in interpersonal and intergroup relations were created, creating an atmosphere of lack of unity, individualism, which weakens the sports performance of its members. This fact motivated the question of how to improve the sports performance of the basketball team, from the elaboration of a proposal for a plan of sociopsychological intervention actions that favor the group cohesion of the studied team.
