YOUNG EMMETS

WHAT IS THE YOUNG EMMETS?

The Young Emmets is a free program for kids and families looking for a unique sporting and cultural experience. Kids ages 6 - 14 can discover the exciting, ancient game of hurling while developing athletic skills, practicing teamwork, and having a great time.

Program dates for the 2022 season are yet to be determined. The best way to stay up to date on the next opportunity to enroll your child is to join our mailing list. You will receive periodic updates on club events and schedules, including our local City League matches and other opportunities for kids and families to get involved with hurling.

Note: Kids ages 15 - 17 are eligible to participate in our adult training and City League with signed approval of a parent or legal guardian. Kids who have not been through the Young Emmets program may be required to demonstrate a minimum level of skill development and athleticism in order to ensure their ability to play safely.

When is it?
Young Emmets camp usually takes place in late summer/early fall.

Where is it?
Location varies by year, but typically takes place in St Paul or the surrounding suburbs.

What do I need to bring?
Participants should wear comfortable, athletic clothing appropriate for the weather and running shoes or cleats. Kids who have a hockey or lacrosse helmet may wear it as well in lieu of a hurling helmet (provided). All other equipment will be supplied.

What will my child be doing?
Kids will learn basic hurling skills from our experienced coaches, play games that help develop movement and coordination, and practice what they have learned with simple scrimmages.
