Creativity as a Developmental Resource in Sport Training Activities
The Big Idea
Few sport coaches would deny player creativity as an essential component of a winning game performance. Nor would they deny that facilitating in-game creativity is typically a significant component of practice sessions. In other words, when creativity is valued it is understood to be an end to be achieved; and it is measured by serendipitous or improvisational performance.
But in this research paper published in the journal, Sport, Education and Society (2017), the authors take a different approach to creativity and sport.
