I don't necessarily think it's important to understand them, unless you're interested in them, want to know them, etc...
My kids don't participate in organized sports, they're just ridiculously priced. We also don't watch sports on tv. But we play outside, a lot. So they understand the basic rules because of that. It's not something "planned" or anything like that though. It's just general play.
Our PE doesn't actually have anything at all to do with sports, as far as teaching "gym" is concerned. We focus more on body/health and things that fall in that category than playing sports. Any sports we do are purely playtime.
