Abstract

The study used the descriptive method of research. A total of 102 athletes were included in the study as respondents and they were selected using stratified sampling technique. A self-made questionnaire was formulated to help the researchers answer the problems encountered by the athletes of DLSHSC. Appropriate statistical tool were employed such as mean, percentage, F-test and frequency. After careful consideration of the findings of the study, the following conclusions were drawn: (1) Majority of the respondents were male, second year students, from the College of Nursing and Midwifery and were athletes of basketball for two (2) years at DLSHSC; (2) The athletes perceived that the availability of sports facilities was a problem to a great extent. There was a moderate amount of problem regarding the provision for free medical support for athletes, provision for financial assistance for athletes, scheduling of practices by the coaches, provision for development program for athletes, provision for athletic trainers, motivation given by the coach and consideration of the professors in academics and had no problem regarding the provision for athletic uniforms. On the other hand, provision for sports equipment was rated as problem to a limited extent and provision for uniform was not a problem. In general, the problems encountered by the respondents were rated to a moderate extent; (3) College affiliation and number of years as athletes were not related to the problems encountered. However, the respondents had varied problems encountered when grouped according to sports affiliation; (4) There was a significant difference in the problems encountered by the athletes of DLSHSC when they were grouped according to sports affiliation.
