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 firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in having a TCRE player host a free hurling workshop for your child's school or recreational program.
STEP 1) TCRE Dues:
With the may unknowns regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, TCRE is not collecting dues at this point. Dues will likely be reduced or eliminated this season once we have an idea of what the season will look like.
STEP 2) USGAA Registration:
We do not yet know what this season will look like, and there is a chance no games will be played this summer. However, the USGAA has not made any move to change the registration deadline of April 30th. That means that any players who intend to play at USGAA finals in Boston this August must complete USGAA registration by April 30th or will not be eligible. USGAA has decided not to charge dues for individual registration this year. All returning players should register as soon as possible.
USGAA will not charge individuals for registration this year.
Registration is required for all travel tournaments.
Registration will be required for summer, fall, and winter leagues (if we are able to play) for insurance reasons.
Registration and the accompanying insurance is good through next April.
Players who have never registered with the USGAA in the past may wait to register until August 1st and still be eligible for USGAA finals.
