We present a conductual model based on the analysis of human skills. The model identifies five classes of skills (basic, technical, tactical, strategic and interpretative) stating from the relationships the sportsperson has with the surrounding elements and the tools for this relationship.
This perspective allows us to verify that the skills the sportsperson has to learn are similar to those in other fields. At the same time, this classification helps to emphasise the near and distant aspects that are different between skills in sport and in other human activities.

Keywords: human skills, Sport Skills.
