CHAPTER I OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS

COMPLEX 2017 -2018

INTRODUCTION

A sport is a game, competition, or activity needing

physical effort and skill that is played or done according

to rules, for enjoyment and/or as a job - Cambridge

Dictionary.

Sports has been an integral part of man. It develops his

several aspects: his recreational, mental, physical,

personal and social beings. It is a medium where men, women,

and the youth get to experience it as a training opportunity

to embody leadership, fair-play, camaraderie and more.

In addition, it encourages a sense of competition

showcasing each individuals skills and abilities. It also

provides amusement to both athletes and sports enthusiasts.

Over time, countless tournaments and sports meets have

been brought about. These sporting events are established by

several athletic associations.

Ozamiz Citys very own Physical Fitness and Sports

Development Council (PFSDC) has been developing and

promoting sports programs within the city. It affiliates

with the national organization, the Philippine Sports


Commission, OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS
COMPLEX 2017 -2018

together with other local associations to encourage wide

appreciation and participation of citizens in sports.

To amplify the councils purpose, all fifty-one (51)

barangays in the city have basketball courts and

multipurpose halls since the project of the present

administration is into establishment of multipurpose halls.

There are thirty-two (32) volleyball courts located in

twenty-one (21) barangays, four (4) tennis courts; and one

golf link, the Mt. Malindang Golf Course a nine-hole golf

course located in Brgy. Bagakay.

The city also has four (4) gymnasiums; one (1) public

and three (3) are privately owned. It also has three (3)

privately owned tennis courts and one (1) that is public.

There are also four (4) private swimming pools, eight (8)

fitness gyms, and two (2) billiard halls.

According to the Ozamizs PFDSC coordinator, Mrs. Nancy

Paglinawan, Ozamiz City has been participating in

tournaments and sports events both locally and nationally.

In fact, it has been excelling in various sports like

basketball, lawn tennis, arnis, sepak takraw and more.

Unfortunately, the city lacks the consistency of its


maintenance, OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS
COMPLEX 2017 -2018

technologies, and facilities to cater every wants and needs

of the inhabitants. It is undoubtedly evident in the city

nowadays.

Thus, this paper is materialized solely to design a

sports complex and cater the needs of the inhabitants. The

project provides facilities that would satisfy the users.

A sports complex is an integration of several sports

facilities. It is a place which hosts sporting events for

competition and entertainment. Moreover, it is a haven for

athletes and sports enthusiasts.

The Proposed Ozamiz City Sports Complex would consist of

a multipurpose sports arena which houses indoor sports

facilities, grandstand, gymnasium, track-and-field oval,

outdoor sports facilities, resto cafe or snack bar, parking

building, vehicular and pedestrian zones.

1.1 HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

Early stadia trace their history back to VIII Century BC

around a rudimentary athletics track shaped as an elongated

U. Starting and finish line were at the two ends and there

was one only 192 m long and 32 m wide track. Along the
track, a stone OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS
COMPLEX 2017 -2018

stand with two separate entrances for judges and for

spectators was built for them to watch and cheer throughout

the competition.

As sports became more popular in Greece, many similar

stadia were built but were used for horse and chariot

racing. The facilities soon started to play important roles

within the location.

During the Roman age, the amphitheater came to life.

Levels were built on elevated position often with

superimposed rows. The elliptical layout fully encompassed

the amphitheater and spectators could focus only on the

arena, the central area where gladiators fights were held.

In parallel with the transition from Greece to the Roman

world, the circus was born between the II and the I Century

BC. Circuses were usually built around the walls and

adjacent to the imperial palace, in order to ensure direct

access for the emperor and his court. These circuses were

used for public activities becoming an integral part of the

city life.

The sole purpose of the first-generation stadia was

basically to host a large amount of spectators in an age


when there was no OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS
COMPLEX 2017 -2018

television and sports events could be watched live. These

facilities had no architectural value, uncomfortable and

provisions of facilities were basic.

Today, modern olympic games were inspired from the model

established by the Greeks stadion. Due to the vast

acceleration of the world, and with the technological

advancement,stadia were equipped with facilities for

spectators in order to improve their comfort and to host

several sports.

The facilities were made more accessible, safe, and

comfortable which drew more diversified and heterogeneous

spectators.

1.2 STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

Ozamiz City has been a home of many athletes and sports enthusiasts. It trains

several athletes, from respective sports events, and sends them to compete to different

cities or municipalities outside Ozamiz. At the same time, it hosts several athletic meets

and tournaments competing different cities and municipalities. Also it has facilities that

people use for amusement and recreation.

However, the researcher observed and even the city sports council admitted that the
OZASCOM:A PROPOSED OZAMIZ CITY SPORTS
city lacks its maintenance in COMPLEX 2017 -2018

terms of the form and function. In fact, it is evident in the city that the sports facilities are

not properly kept in good condition.

In addition, it lacks facilities that would cater these events in one place. Throughout

the years, the sports events in Ozamiz had been hosted in different parts in the city, not in

a specific place.

Thus, the researcher comes up with a study to propose an Ozamiz City Sports

Complex. This study aims to provide a good and high capable facilities that is sensitive to

the needs of its target users, and also to promote local economic progress in the province.

Furthermore, the researcher aims to answer the following

questions:

1. What are the sports complex concepts and principles that will be applied in order

to arrive at a sound site planning and design?

2. What would be the feasible methods that would be economically beneficial to the

location?

3. How should the sports complex spaces be integrated into the master plan?

4. How do the structures accommodate to the needs of the inhabitants, and serve its

purpose as a sports destination?

5. What are the environmental issues and concerns that need to be addressed?

1.3 SIGNIFICANCE OF COMPLEX 2017 -2018

THE STUDY

The principal purpose of this study is to come up with a design of sports complex

that would be able to have satisfactory and functional structures for the users. The

study shall give importance in designing the sports complex

that can be able to serve and understand the impact of

architecture.

Architects, practicing architects, and those in the

academe has a big role in finding the solution and

expansion of certain design theories that helps in searching

for better design which responds to the needs of the users:
