Expanding University Contacts

Gaelic games are growing in the Midwest.  There is interest from a number of universities within the Midwest Collegiate area that are currently looking to increase the number of student players and leaders.  No experience in Hurling and Gaelic Football are necessary.  Participating in collegiate Gaelic Games is a great way to meet new people, learn a new sport, and have fun all while being active.  Opportunities to travel exist and there is no better way to see the Midwestern U.S.  Being a student leader is a unique resume builder that employers ask about, giving you the opportunity to explain your role, and Gaelic games.  Leadership positions only require a few minutes per week to ensure the club grows.  

Students from the following schools should contact the Midwest Collegiate GAA immediately, midwestcollegehurling@gmail.com, if you are interested in playing Gaelic games or in being a student leader:

Iowa - Iowa State University; St. Ambrose University; Grinnell College

Illinois - University of Chicago; Illinois Institute of Technology; St. Xavier University; University of Illinois; Augustana University

Indiana - Wabash College; St. Joseph's College; Franklin College

These 26 schools join the already established clubs at Ball State (IN); Belmont (TN); Indiana University (IN); Middle Tennessee State (TN); Purdue (IN); University of Michigan, Dearborn (MI); Notre Dame (IN); University of Pittsburgh (PA).  

If you are interested in playing Gaelic games at your university, and your school is not listed, get in touch the MCGAA immediately, midwestcollegehurling@gmail.com, and we will help you get a club at your university.  It takes only a few minutes a week is a great resume builder and a unique legacy to leave after you graduate.
