Annual General Assembly & Sports Weekend

Welcome!

This May, the ACYOA Seniors of St. John Armenian Church would like to welcome you to join us for the 2015 General Assembly and Sports Weekend in Detroit. This year’s committee has been working tirelessly to provide an exciting and packed weekend for all participants. Over the span of four days, participants and delegates will get to be a part of the General Assembly, sports, evening events, service projects, and worship. We are thrilled to host an event that brings together Armenian youth from all over the country and unite them with one common goal: fellowship. This goal works to conserve our Christian faith and Armenian heritage and reflects on this year’s motto, “We are the legacy.”

Connecting with alumni is a major goal of the General Assembly and Sports Weekend Committee of Detroit 2015. In this spirit, we have planned events that will spark your interest! We hope that you get to experience the authenticity of Detroit while you’re here. We look forward to seeing you this Memorial Day Weekend!

Do not forget to register early to secure admission into the events. This year, participants are able to make their own hotel reservations. Hotel rooms are first come, first serve. Make sure to reserve your room early! REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN.
