When Yung is not coaching he continues to be very active in the Portland/Vancouver volleyball scene. Currently he plays in CEVA adult Men's tournaments, weekly indoor leagues, and Co-Ed tournaments. Yung has had success bringing  junior athletes and introducing them and their families to volleyball outside of club.
