Are you interested in learning the Irish sports of hurling, camogie, and Gaelic football? You’re in luck!
The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club is ALWAYS recruiting new members for all sports.
We just wrapped up our spring league for hurling, but that doesn’t mean the fun is over. In a few weeks, we’ll launch our second Gaelic football league, and our hurling and camogie teams are prepping for summer and fall tournament travel. In other words, it’s always a great time to join!
What is hurling?
Hurling is a field sport played with a stick and ball. Field hockey, ice hockey, and lacrosse players have historically taken to the sport quickly. Hurling is the oldest, fastest, and most skillful field game in the world.
What is camogie?
Camogie is the ladies’ version of hurling, with only a few slight rule differences. In our intra-club league play, women join the men for co-ed matches. During tournaments, the women compete separately on their own teams.
What is Gaelic football?
Gaelic football, commonly referred to as football or Gaelic, is an Irish team sport played between two teams of 15 players on a rectangular grass pitch. Except in Nashville, we play with as many people as we can round up, which is usually 5 to 7 players per team. Right now, we’re co-ed, but as we grow, we’ll split ladies and men for tournaments as we do with hurling and camogie.
