Presently there is very limited written training program for sepak takraw that can be used by coaches in the Philippines. Periodization is a proven modern training approach that can be adopted to help the athletes reach peak performance for competition. Therefore, the purpose of the study was to develop a periodized sepak takraw training program that can be used by coaches. The respondents were the 48 sepak takraw players in Pampanga who answered the Present Status Sepak Takraw Training Questionnaire. Based from the gathered data on the present status of the sepak takraw training program and Bompa’s periodization theory, a proposed model periodized sepak training program was designed and evaluated by experts with the use of the Sepak Takraw Training Program Evaluation Tool. Frequency distribution and overall mean were used in the treatment of data. The findings of the study revealed that the present status of the sepak takraw program of Pampanga was evaluated as fair and needed improvement. The designed periodized sepak takraw program was evaluated as excellent and may be a viable program in improving the skill acquisition and competition performance of the players.
