GAA for Dads and Lads

‘GAA for Dads & Lads’ is a social hurling and football programme for those keen to enjoy Gaelic Games outside the traditional competitive structures of the GAA.

With an emphasis on the social interaction and enjoyment that only team sports can provide, GAA for Dads & Lads is about keeping fun and participation to the fore of hurling football. Aimed at males age 40ish and older regardless of experience the games allow incidental contact only (to minimise risk of injury) so skills are to the fore over physicality. So regardless of whether you are a retired great, a lapsed player looking to reconnect with the game you once loved, or completely new to Gaelic games and looking to try your hand at a bit of hurling or football, ‘GAA for Dads & Lads’ could be for you.

If you think there is an appetite for social hurling or football group in your club or county and would like more information and/or to register a GAA Dads & Lads team, click on the link below to the Dads & Lads section of the GAA Learning site.

Participation in GAA Dads & Lads is not covered by the GAA Injury Benefit Fund. Risk is an inherent factor in sport, as in life. When members voluntarily take part in Club activities particularly playing activities in contact sports, they accept the risks that such participation may bring. Each player needs to ensure that they have adequate cover in place to meet their own individual needs and personal circumstances in the event of accidental injury. Clubs should complete a games planning check in advance of taking part and ensure that all members are registered with the GAA.
