The Greek volleyball community in the U.S. continues to grow rapidly 

nomos volley 2021 site

An additional seven new female Greek players will be competing this year in collegiate volleyball in the United States. By the end of January, the NCAA, NAIA, and NJCAA championships will begin in which the Greek colors will be represented in record high numbers. Thirty-three female Greek athletes and five male Greek athletes will compete this upcoming season in intercollegiate level in the States, the majority of whom have international experience with their national teams and have managed to get a full athletic scholarship with the support of NOMOS.

NOMOS, which offers comprehensive consulting services in sports law and the regulatory framework of college sports, builds bridges between Europe's top sports talent and US colleges and universities.

Added to last year’s student-athletes, seven new Greek volleyball players committed this year to US colleges and universities. These are: Stella Giourda, Stella Antypa, Elisavet Papageorgiou, Stavroula Papazoglou, Stefania Anagnostou, Mariana Anastasiadi, and Markella Lanara. 

Most athletes took part in NOMOS' programs and the top-rated European Volleyball Exposure (EVE), a groundbreaking showcase that gathers all the necessary information and data related to talent scouting required by US coaches.

NOMOS will monitor the season, highlight the efforts of all Greek student-athletes, and will be by their side in a championship that is taking place in two portions, both fall and spring, due to the COVID-19 pandemic that caused the postponement of the championship in some conferences, while other conferences’ competitions were held as planned from September to November.
