It is well established that the United States Sports Academy prides itself on its international flavoring on sports and recreation. In concert with this decided leaning, featured in this article is the Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club’s (NGAC) Hurling League, which is aimed toward attracting players interested in having a go at hurling, the National Sport of Ireland.
Hurling in Ireland is administered by the Gaelic Athletic Association, or the GAA. Some descriptions associated with the game of hurling include…
“The fastest game on grass!”
“One of the most skill sports played today!”
“It’s like baseball, field hockey, rugby, and soccer all rolled into one game!”
“It requires agility, fitness, hand-eye coordination, strength and teamwork – and above all else: Be brave!”
