The Autism Society Philippines (ASP) is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to the well-being of persons on the autism spectrum disorder. We envision a society where Filipinos on the spectrum become the best of their potentials -- self-reliant, independent, productive, socially-accepted citizens of an Autism-OK Philippines.

ASP Takkyu Volley Boot Camp is on!

The Autism Society Philippines, the nation’s strongest and widest-reaching autism advocacy group is inspiring acceptance, accommodation and appreciation of persons with autism (PWAs), through programs and projects relevant to the our growing community of 13,000 members and 98 chapters nationwide.

We are holding the first ever ASP Takkyu Volley Boot Camp on 7 December 2019, Saturday, at 10am to 12nn at The Decathlon, L2 Tiendesitas, Frontera Drive, Pasig City. Takkyu Volley, a sport invented in Japan, is played on a ping pong table where a maximum of 12 players play the game by rolling the ball, with wood blocks, under a regulation net.


The boot camp will prepare our athletes for the ASP AUthletics Games: Takkyu Volley on 26 January 2020, Sunday at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall -- immediately following the ASP Angels Walk for Autism.

The ASP AUthletics program will be a nationwide program on wellness through movement and on competitive athlete development for individuals on the autism spectrum. The program will promote well-being, friendship, and achievement; as well as will inspire genuine acceptance, accommodation and appreciation in an Autism-OK Philippines.

We invite duly-accredited ASP Chapters to be among the pioneer teams that will help propel this program forward. We need your commitment to:

- Field a team to represent the city and commit players who are in good health;
