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.
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.
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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org, 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.
