CYC supports women’s and men’s teams at all levels and ages. The teams participate in local, regional and national tournaments. During the summer, the men’s teams play in the Chinese traditional 9-Man tournaments and the women play the traditional 6-person format. The summer program’s goal is to play in the New York Mini tournament and the North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament (NACIVT) held every Labor Day weekend. CYC has also participated in other volleyball tournaments held in Boston and Philadelphia.
CYC has fielded teams to the national tournament since the club’s establishment in 1939 and is one of the local clubs that help with the planning and coordination when the NACIVT is held in Washington, D.C. In 2013, the club fielded eleven teams in NACIVT with players ranging in age from 12 to 65.
