Chinese 9-man is a variation of volleyball with nine players on each side and a slightly larger court (10 by 20 meters). Historically, the sport was played by Chinese immigrants to the US, who predominantly hailed from Toisan (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.
Boston Hurricane volleyball teams have competed at the highest level since the 1970s. Top four finishes by our mens teams in 1977 (Toronto), 1988 (Toronto), 1989 (Washington), 2010 (Boston), and 2014 (Las Vegas) in the North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament (NACIVT) enriches multiple generations of experience in competitive volleyball.
We strive to continue to build our women's and junior girls program by developing athletes with excellent technique and mental toughness, while upholding the Hurricanes values of sportsmanship, respect, and service.
We have five teams in the 2019 season. Women play with NCAA rules, just on concrete.
