Abstract

Modernized sport emphasizes the product, the measurable results of competition. This paper examines the process in sport and in particular, the aspect of struggle. Several possibilities exist for developing a sport ethos where process is understood and valued. Practitioners need to cultivate an intimate relationship with their respective practice and reflect on the process as they play. An additional method involves promoting process through narrative. Approaching sport with an appreciation for process creates space for improving sport. Practitioners may observe and experience a wide variety of sport values. Because of this understanding, they are more likely to appreciate their practice and take great strides to uphold its ethical framework. Finally, they gain knowledge of the entire continuum of sport experience.
