Players of All Ages

Our programs focus on developing aspects of individual skill and mental fortitude while forging team bonds that can last a lifetime. A number of players on the CYC Rebels team have been with the club for forty years or more!

Our goals for the summer program are to:

  • Cultivate love and respect for the game and those who play it
  • Develop competitive, disciplined, highly-skilled athletes
  • Teach the history and traditions of CYC and 9-man volleyball
  • Instill ideals of sportsmanship, compassion, and family
  • Transcend sport through community service

Chinese 9-Man Volleyball

Men play in the traditional Chinese 9-Man format and women play in the USVBA 6-person format while competing in local, regional, and national tournaments.

9-man (also nine-man or 9man) is a volleyball team sport utilizing nine players per side and a slightly larger court at 32 ft x 65 ft, with a net height of 7 ft 8.5 inches. Historically, the sport was played by Chinese immigrants to the US, who predominantly hailed from Taishan city in Guangdong province of China. In the late 1930s the sport was used as a means to socially connect the laborers in Chinatowns across the United States. Teams from Boston and Providence, RI held the first organized nine-man tournament in 1938 which later spread to Chinatowns in other large US and Canadian cities.  The North American version of 9-Man continues to grow today with a popular tournament known as the North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament (NACIVT) that rotate among different cities every September over Labor Day weekend.

6-Women Volleyball

6-Women (aka 6-man) is a volleyball team sport consisting of six players per side separated by a net. This court is smaller than 9-man courts. The court size is 29 ft 6 in x 59 ft with the net height of 7 ft 4 inches high. Each team are allowed as many as three consecutive touches, until either (1): a team makes a kill, grounding the ball on the opponent’s court and winning the rally; or (2): a team commits a fault and loses the rally. The team that wins the rally is awarded a point and serves the ball to start the next rally.

The first time Women teams were invited to participate was at the 1977 33rd Annual NACIVT in Toronto, Canada. CYC put forward its first women’s volleyball team in 1978 at the 34th NACIVT hosted by Washington, DC in Chinatown. Today, CYC women teams participate in the same tournaments as the men teams, including all the Mini tournaments leading up to nationals.
