Hurling’s all-female counterpart, Camogie has been played around the world for over 100 years
How is it played?
The objective of the game is for players to use a wooden stick called a hurley to hit a small ball called a sliotar between the opponents’ goalposts either over the crossbar for one point or under the crossbar into a net guarded by a goalkeeper for a goal, which is
equivalent to three points.
Who can play?
Everyone! We welcome all fitness and skill levels. The only real requirement is your time and a dedication to the game, your team, and to your personal improvement. Beginners are always welcome to attend a practice session and experience the game.
What’s the time commitment?
Our club, Columbia Red Branch, has both a competitive and a recreational “pub” league. The competitive team requires a commitment of weekly training and occasional travel during the season (March – September) as well as participation in volunteer events. The pub league has semi-weekly informal games on weekends.
