Welcome to the official website of the Montreal
North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament
The North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament (NACIVT) is an annual volleyball tournament held on Labor Day weekend to bring together Chinese communities from around the United States and Canada.
The history of nine man volleyball in North American’s Chinatowns started back in 1935 when Providence traveled to Boston for a match against Boston’s team. It wasn’t until 1937 that the organization was officially considered a tournament. The tournament is held outdoors and played on pavement, with the courts typically set-up in a large parking lot or even on the streets. It is very much a cultural phenomenon; two-thirds of the players on each team must be 100% Chinese, and the rest must be of Asian descent. The word eventually got around and teams started forming all along the East coast. Now about 1,500 players and coaches participate in the annual event with 3,000 to 4,000 daily spectators travel to a different host city. The tournament rotates between seven cities: Boston, Los Angeles, Montreal, New York, San Francisco, Toronto, and Washington D.C..
This year, Montreal has the pleasure of hosting the 67th Annual North American Chinese Invitational Volleyball Tournament at the Palais des Congrès de Montréal from September 3 to 5, 2011.
Hope to see you all in Toronto next year for the 68th NACIVT.
