Team Challenge

🏆 April Team Skills Challenge

March was a great month for our clubs Monthly Skills Competition. I know it’s tough not being on the field with each other but hopefully you felt some club esprit de corps and a connection to your teammates as we completed our challenges. I have my fingers crossed that this month’s challenge brings us one step closer to playing with each other soon.

March’s Winners

Hotel Tango rose to the trash talking of the pretenders to the throne to claim the football challenge and Skyline Roofing swooped in for the victory on the very last day in the hurling/camogie challenge.

This Month’s Challenge

Our hurling/camogie challenge involves the jab lift with a run/solo and our Gaelic football challenge is wall kicks. Please take a moment to view the videos below for all the details:

The Prizes

A $10 voucher for one of the club’s sponsors for all participating members of the winning team. In addition, all participating members of the team with the most participants will be entered into a drawing where one team member will win 2 passes to the Indianapolis Zoo!

Further Guidance

Please video and upload the recording to our Slack channels in the channel #monthlychallenges  and on social media. Please remember to mention your team and sponsor at some point in the recording and extra credit if you tag them too.

Don’t forget to enter your score here, or get someone on your team to do it for you, onto the Google Sheet linked below. THIS IS VERY A IMPORTANT STEP to ensure we can accurately tally the winners!

The challenge will end on April 30th, and a new challenge will then be launched for the month of May, hopefully bringing us one month closer to us getting together on the field again. This is a great opportunity for us all to practice our skills, stay connected and have some fun until we return to play.

I hope you all enjoy the virtual challenge and best of luck to everyone!

Team Challenge

🏆 March Team Skills Challenge

We had a great start to our Monthly Skills Competition in February. It was great to see our fellow club members completing their challenges, and see each others faces, albeit virtual, again.

Claire Lane showed us all how to multitask , Liam Bonner showed off his chugging skills, and Nick Wilson showed what he really thinks of Gaelic Football 😂

February’s Winners

Congrats to Hope Plumbing who won the first round of the hurling team challenge and Bier Brewery who took the win for football.

This Month’s Challenge

Our hurling challenge involves 30 seconds to see how many times can you execute the roll lift pick-up and our Gaelic football challenge is to see how many solos & overhead catches that you can make in the same period of time.

In the spirit of Women’s History Month check out the videos below by multiple All-Ireland Senior Champions Mags D’Arcy (Camogie) and Sinéad Finnegan (Gaelic Football):

The Prizes

A $10 voucher for one of the club’s sponsors for all participating members of the winning team. In addition, all participating members of the team with the most participants will be entered into a draw where one team member will win a $10 voucher!

Friday Night Craic with a GAA Legend – June 14, 2019

We are proud to introduce Éamonn Ryan, legendary Cork player and coach, as the Games Development Ambassador for this year’s Indy Invitational. Éamonn played senior inter-county Gaelic football for Cork from 1963 to 1968. 

That Cork team played in an All-Ireland Final in 1967. He played hurling with his local club Watergrasshill, winning East Cork junior A and Cork County junior A titles with the club in 1974. Ryan later served as manager of both the Cork senior men’s and Cork senior ladies’ football teams. 

He coached the Cork ladies to 10 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship matches from 2005 to 2015 – and won all of them. He is one of the most successful GAA managers of all time.
