Ateneo De Manila University - Athletics

Athletics

The Ateneo de Manila University is a member of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines, where it fields teams in all events. It was originally a founding member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association in the 1920s. The Ateneo left the NCAA in 1978 due to the league-wide violence prevalent at the time, and then joined the UAAP in the same year.

Aside from the UAAP, the Ateneo also participates in the Father Martin Cup, Filoil Flying V Preseason Cup, Philippine University Games (Unigames), Philippine Collegiate Championship League (PCCL), and the Shakey's V-League. Different university units also field teams in leagues such as Rizal Football Association (RIFA), Philippine Athletic Youth Association (PAYA), Private Schools Athletic Development Association (PRADA) and BEST Small Basketeers Program (SBP), the Inter-MBA Friendship Games and inter-university golf tournaments. The Ateneo also fields sports teams to the Jesuit Invitational Games (JIGs), an athletic tournament participated by eight Jesuit schools in the Philippines.
