Continental Youth Championships

July 28, 29, 30, 31 – Registration Deadline is May 30th

The National Tournament runs from Thursday through Sunday. We will be arranging hotels in early June. This is a great, long weekend filled with Gaelic sports (football & hurling), hotels with pools, and friends. Our children do not get many opportunities to play other teams so this is a great experience and relatively close by.

U7’s do not play competitively, but are organized by the USGAA (US Gaelic Athletic Association) when they arrive. The competitive groups are U9, U11, U13 Boys, U13 Girls, U15 Boys, U15 Girls, U18 Boys, U18 Girls.

If we do not have enough players in an age group we may have them play up one level, or will work to amalgamate with our other Midwest Division teams – Detroit, Buffalo, Pittsburgh. So, if you are interested, Sign – up.

Midwest Finals

August 6th and 7th in Rochester, NY. It is not known if the Midwest will host youth games as of yet.
