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.
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."
A group of greek teens, grades 7 to 12, who join this group.
Events like: outdoor olympics, indoor olympics, soccer tournaments, retreats, dances, and sights and sounds, etc. are some of the awesome events that occur during the year. New Jersey GOYAns are the best. Also includes a week of camp, the best camp ever. These Greeks love to party.
Greek Girl: "Both, two weeks with my Greeks is a no brainer."
