Since the 2007-2008 academic year, City Tech has had twelve sanctioned varsity teams. The men’s and women’s varsity teams include basketball, cross-country, indoor and outdoor track & field, tennis and volleyball, men’s soccer and women’s softball. To be a member of one of these varsity teams, potential student athletes must be registered as full-time, four-year degree eligible students. Students must be CUNY-certified in reading, writing and math and must also maintain a 2.0 grade point average.
The athletic department reserves the right with each individual team to raise the accepted GPA level as prescribed by that team’s pre-participation contract. Due to construction on the Klitgord Center, varsity teams have been disbanded entirely until further notice due to the inavailability of any gym facilities. The school may attempt to reorganize as a junior college athletically, not having any outdoor facilities and losing their gymnasium makes it impossible to run an adequate program. It is said that City Tech will not have a native sports program until two to three years from now.
However, there is an intramural league program that is being put together in place of the lack of City Tech gym facilities, where athletes can practice and compete in their desired sport in a team-based fashion. There are also plans to include new athletic programs when gym facilities are available once again, such as a kickboxing program.
