Basketball

The New York Athletic Club's basketball teams are made up of former professional and high level college players. There are two teams: NYAC Elite (NYAC's elite players) and NYAC A (member team). Both teams compete in the National Club championships in their respective divisions. The NYAC Elite Team has traveled as far as China to compete in the 'Friendship Games' and has won nine out of the last 14 National Club Championships (NACAD Tournament).
