Youth » GOYANZ


GOYANZ was formed as incorporated society in 1958 to meet the needs of Wellington' s Greek youth in cultural and sporting activities. GOYANZ is also the parent body of the football club, Olympic AFC. Olympic began life as a football club in 1952 under the banner of Apollon Association. Apollon later changed its name to CYFC (Christian Youth Football Club) and affiliated itself to GOYANZ in 1958. In 1983 the club’s name was changed once again to Olympic as it is today. The football club is run by a subcommittee of GOYANZ. Other subcommittees also under the GOYANZ umbrella include educational and youth groups involved in local community affairs. Current membership is 500+.
