Which Membership Level is Right for You?

  • NEW Member: New to hurling or new to TCRE? New members with our club are eligible to attend up to 5 FREE TRAINING SESSIONS. Once you've decided that TCRE is right for you, you can sign up for a discounted New Member membership that includes all the benefits of being a TCRE member, plus a FREE HURLEY (hurling stick) to help you get started. Note: New Player membership rate does not apply to any player who has previously been a member of TCRE.

  • RETURNING MEMBER: You already know that you love hurling and are coming back for more! Anyone who has been a member player with TCRE in any prior year and is not qualified as a Student should register as a Returning Player.


  • HOUSEHOLD: Hurling isn't just in your blood. . . it's in your family! Household membership applies to up to 2 adult players plus their children (ages 15-18) living in the same household. 

  • STUDENT: You're still in school and could use a bit of a break. We get it; we've all been there. If you're currently enrolled in high school or an undergraduate program, feel free to take advantage of a special membership rate for students.

  • YOUNG EMMETS: Children ages 6 - 14 can try their hand at hurling with TCRE's FREE Young Emmets program. The Young Emmets typically run through the fall season (September - October). Please check our Young Emmets page as we near the season for more information. You can also e-mail if you are interested in having a TCRE player host a free hurling workshop for your child's school or recreational program.
