It's because they know that these qualities are the most important aspects of any sport. Select athletes that are good at these, and the rest will follow. Skills, tactics and vision are secondary and can always be developed later.
Vision is not a secondary skill by a long shot. Skill and strategy are learned. Vision is gifted.
