Join the Emmets

Our club is dedicated to growing the sport of hurling in the Twin Cities. Whether you grew up playing

hurling in Ireland, or just discovered the sport, we want you to be a part of Twin Cities Robert

Emmets! We have a fun and competitive co-ed city league for players of all levels, send travel teams

to tournaments around the nation, and run a Young Emmets program for kids to learn the sport.


City League

Our co-ed City League consists of four teams that

compete for separate fall and summer season

trophies. The summer season runs May-August

and the fall season is September-October. Games

are played on Sunday afternoons. All players are

drafted onto one of the four teams each spring.

(Players joining after the draft will be added to one of the teams on a rotating basis.) The city league is for men and women ages 15 and over.

Travel Teams

Dedicated players may become part of our travel teams that compete in regional and national tournaments. We currently have two men's teams playing at the Junior B and Junior C levels and one women's (called Camogie) team playing at the Intermediate level. We hope to add a Junior level Camogie team as soon as this year. Twin Cities Robert Emmets hosts a tournament each year in June, in addition to traveling to a few tournaments each season. The highlight of the year for the travel teams is the USGAA National Finals held on Labor Day weekend.

Young Emmets

Youth ages 6-14 who are interested in hurling can participate in TCRE's Young Emmets program.  Dedicated TCRE members teach the basics of hurling through weekly practices and matches, and kids learn the value of teamwork and rewards of accomplishment.  Through generous donations and sponsorships, the Young Emmets program is FREE for all participants.  Find out more information about the Young Emmets and how you can sign up your child at our Young Emmet's page.

How to Join

New players are welcome at any training session (see our calendar for details).  For the greatest impact, we encourage anyone who is interested in hurling to come out as early in the season as possible.  If you have any questions or would like to talk to us about playing hurling, email, sign up for our mailing list, or simply check out our calendar and come out to a training session!  Outdoor training begins in April.

Members of the TCRE Training Committee will be on hand with a special program specifically designed for players who are new to hurling.  Training will focus on the building blocks of the sport and give interested players a taste of what it's like to be a hurler.  All equipment - hurleys (hurling stick), sliothars (balls), and helmets - will be provided for the first 5 sessions.


All new and returning players need to fill out a registration form and waiver prior to participating in practice and games.
