2.  Rain is another environmental factor to be considered.  It may seem harmless. Some people think that plunging into the rain is good as it has a cooling effect.  True, if your body temperature prior to soaking in the rain is normal. Otherwise, the body undergoes stress as it is forced to suddenly balance the body temperature brought about by the sudden change in temperature in the environment.  For example, chanting and cheering for your favorite sports team on a sunny, very hot day, then suddenly get soaked wet by rain.  This stress has detrimental effects on the body. This can cause dryness in the skin and mucus membrane of the eyes.  It can also bring about eye infections, respiratory infections, and muscular spasms.  Sports shelter provides the warmth needed by the body to slowly adjust to sudden temperature outdoor.

  2. once in a while outdoor sports can effectively provide valuable learning experience, however im quite hesitant about it because of its negative effects that can bring towards one’s health esp when the children concerned are too young such as skin irritations and the like or too much hit that may dehydrate these youngsters:)

  3. That is why I don’t like outdoor sports activity because of the sun. I am easily dehydrated when I am exposed under the heat of the sun and can barely breath.

  4. A sports shelter is definitely a must in areas where there is exposed space to sunlight / rain. I’m glad that the Rizal Sports Center has these on the sides.

    1. There are different shelter designs for different countries. The shelters shown above might have been from a European country or maybe the US. I am from the Phil. and i play outdoor pickup inter-tsinelas basketball a lot. When playing, the heat might not matter… but while waiting for your turn or every after playing, having a shelter from the heat of the sun will be a great comfort.

  5. Wow those shelters are cool and we really need one here in the Philippines so kids will leave their gadgets and start having outdoor activities. This shelters will also minimize a lot of health related problems.

  6. People definitely underestimate the dangers of the sun. I cringe when one of my friends goes to a tanning salon. I know I’ve damaged my skin from tanning during my college days. I just hope it doesn’t turn into melanoma.

    1. I’m sorry to hear that. One article calls the sun’s heat as a “silent killer”. Have you gone to a specialist and see how far the sun’s heat has damaged your skin?

  7. There are some good points here. Many people only think about cost and appearance when purchasing these types of shelters. You gave a good list of other things that should be considered.
