Abstract: This study explored the premise that the creative process can be developed and the creative personality of each student enhanced through physical education programs which are selected as to kind and conducted as to outcome. Gowin's system of philosophic inquiry was utilized, consisting of the development of hypotheses and their attendant subhypotheses based upon assumptions and presuppositions where applicable. Hypotheses were developed concerning the phenomenon of creativity, the process involved in creative enterprise, and the personality conducive to creativity. The teaching-learning environment was studied in terms of its contribution to the development of creative potential. The activities presented in a physical education program and a methodological scheme which advocated the presentation of those activities were studied.
