The Australasian association is the governing body for Gaelic Games in Australia & New Zealand (Australasia). It is comprised of a President, 10 Vice Presidents, who are representative of 10 affiliated State associations, Secretary, Treasurer and PRO. Gaelic Football and Hurling have been played across Australia and New Zealand for many decades by Irish immigrants keen to maintain a connection with the national sport of their youth. Today men, women, boys and girls from all backgrounds now play Gaelic games. Both Ladies Football and Camogie are experiencing particularly strong growth. In 2001 Gaelic Football met the stringent criteria of the Australian Sports Commission to become an officially accredited sport in Australia. To safeguard the continued development of Gaelic Games, a strong focus is currently being placed on Youth Development. Perth is leading the charge with the establishment of their Gaelic Games Junior Academy.
