Sport can be thought of as a form of embodied intelligence that is acquired and refined in the context of relations with coaches and parents. Sporting intelligence is not simply athleticism, nor is it simply a conceptual understanding of tactics and strategies. Rather, it is also 'game sense', the ability to adapt readily and perform creatively and effectively to solve game problems.
