Team Challenge

February Team Skills Challenge

Are you up for the challenge? Then let’s see what you’re made of. The intent of this challenge is to help  connect us as a club during the pandemic and also help our sponsors too. The time is here to show off those skills acquired, or possibly lost, during the winter months, beginning now!

The Challenge

How many times can you strike the sliotar or the Gaelic football off of the wall in 30 seconds? Check out the links below for instructions on how to complete this month’s challenge.

The Prizes

All participating members of the team with the most participants will be entered into a drawing to win a $10 gift card to one of club’s brewery sponsors. The sponsor will be chosen by the board in the next few days, so keep your eye out for an announcement!

Further Guidance

The challenge will remain live and scores will be recorded until the last day in February, and a new challenge will be launched in March.

Please record and upload a video to our social pages and/or Slack channel #monthlychallenges. Also remember to mention your team and sponsor at some point in the recording. If possible tag your team sponsor as well to help show your support!

Lastly, upload your score into the shared Google Sheet. It is all about the number of impacts on wall, it doesn’t matter if you let the sliotar or the Gaelic football (or any ball) drop! Just go for it for 30 seconds and let’s have some fun!

Mathes Refereeing

2020 Referee Training Course

We are planning to host our annual referee training course on Sunday, June 28th, at 12pm at Centerpoint Brewing, and should last until around 4.

Centerpoint Brewing Co.

This training is for you if: 

  • You need a refresher on how many steps you can take while holding the ball, or what’s an aggressive foul vs. a technical foul
  • You haven’t reffed before but you are interested
  • You just want to know the rules so you can better understand our games and you can question the refs calls

The course will start with a couple hours of the basics and then will be more advanced after lunch.  Lunch and possibly beer will be provided for attendees.   

Those who attend will not be required to ref this season, but it would be greatly appreciated if they did 😁.   

 We will also offer ref shadowing (from a safe distance) for those who are interested in reffing but may be hesitant to step out there by themselves.
