TRAINING RESUMES   13/09/2020

Senior and Youth Hurling and Camogie training resumes this Fall 2020 season. 

We invite you to play with us, learn more about the sport of Hurling/Camogie, try a demo, and/or stop by a practice! We’ve enjoyed playing in national, regional, and international games, and developing a healthy and inclusive sporting community. We would like you to join us!

ABOUT US

Deemed the fastest sport played on grass, Hurling and Camogie can best be described as Ireland’s mix of lacrosse and field hockey. Our club brought the sports to the Ottawa Region in 2012 and it just keeps growing! Last year, we trained our athletes for success, and brought Canada to the Gaelic Athletic World Games for the very first time in these codes. Our Youth team claimed another victory by winning the North American Championships.

WHY WE WOULD LIKE YOU TO TRAIN WITH US

We want Team Canada back at the 2022 World Games, and to defend our Senior and Youth titles – and we want you to join us! Our sports are similar, so come give it a try. We want to welcome and train athletes from similar sports to develop our skills, broaden our game strategies, and learn something new about other sports.

We are getting attention, and want to build on the momentum:  Éire Óg won the 2018 and 2019 Eastern Canadian Championship (Men); the 2019 Continental Youth Championship (Youth); the 2019 Heritage Cup (Men and Women); and, made half of Team Canada at the 2019 World Games (Men and Women).

WHAT DOES TRAINING LOOK LIKE

Like most things, COVID has changed our training protocols and game schedules, but we have resumed training to keep our skills sharp and do our country proud.  This involves one hour of training per week, year-round, with the following schedules:

  • Senior Hurling/Camogie Training
    Every Wednesday evening from 6:30pm-7:30pm at Notre Dame High School Football Field (710 Broadview Avenue, Ottawa).
  • Youth Hurling/Camogie Training
    Every Thursday evening from 6:30pm-7:30pm at 390 March Road Soccer Field (390 March Road, Kanata).
