Stands for Greek Orthodox Youth of America.
Orthodox Youth ages 13-18 (grades 7-12) participate in church functions and the ever anticipated GOYA Tournaments generally held during the months of January and February. They occur Friday night through Sunday morning 3 times a year. Ironically, tournaments are spent sneaking in alcohol, playing basketball, Greek Dancing, PARTYING, sleeping in hotels with limited adult supervision, and waking up early Sunday morning with a massive hangover to go to church.
Dan: "Hey Nick, want to do something this weekend?"
Nick: "Sorry dude, I can't. There's a GOYA tournament in Pittsburgh, and Steve's sneaking in alcohol."
Dan: "I wish I was Greek."
