What we're about

Tampa Bay Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) are looking for players who are interested in learning the Irish sports of hurling and Gaelic football.
No experience necessary, we will teach you, and we just do it for the craic!
Hurling is the oldest continuously played sport in the world and features skills that you would see in hockey, baseball, lacrosse, and tennis. It has been dubbed ‘the fastest game on grass’.
Gaelic football has very similar rules but with a larger ball and a lot more kicking! Skills in soccer, rugby, football, Aussie rules, and even basketball would be of use in this physical game. Be prepared to run!

Both sports can be explained in very good detail on YouTube.

We typically meet Wednesday nights at 6 PM and Sunday mornings at 10 AM at the football fields next to Providence West Community Center at 5417 Providence Rd in Riverview. Pints enjoyed afterwards at a nearby Irish pub.

Don’t be shy, we’re eager to teach you how to play Ireland’s national sports and you’ll make a few friends in the process.

Please visit Tampa Bay GAA on social media.
