StretchLab will be at the Indy Invitational

Indy GAA is excited to announce that StretchLab will be joining us for the Indy Invitational at the Indianapolis World Sports Park on June 17th.

StretchLab is a team of Certified Professionals who do Assisted Stretching for all body types. For our specific Indy GAA community, they will be focusing on Recovery, Sports Performance and Injury Prevention! 

You will see a tent and portable tables available on-site and will be able to receive a free demonstration stretch with one of their Flexologists before, in between, and after the games. All assisted stretches will be customized to meet the needs of your own body. 

They are also offering 50% off for first in-studio visits and 10% off memberships if you are interested in making this service a part of your regular wellness regime. For more information about their team and offerings, you can find them online and/or follow them on Facebook and Instagram.

Nationals Callout and Practices

As we plan ahead to the 2023 USGAA Nationals in Denver this year, we’ve started holding dedicated nationals-focused practices, which are in addition to our traditional Wednesday practices.

  • Hurling & Camogie – Tuesdays
  • Gaelic Football – Thursdays

These practices will be held at Eugene Burns Fields and as always, keep an eye on our calendar in the event things change.

As we get further into the season we’ll start to hone in on the makeup of our travel teams, but until then these practices are open to anyone interested in potentially making the trip.

In the meantime we ask that you complete this form to help us get a better idea of how many folks can make the trip, and how many teams we should register.

Upcoming Coaching Clinic – 2/25

If you’ve ever been at practice and thought ‘Man, I never want to do this drill again’ or ‘Man, I wanna do this drill/game every week’ — have I got an opportunity for you! Coaching tutors Brien Shoemaker and Ciaran Connery will be leading a coaching course from 9am – 3pm on February 25 at the Zionsville Youth Soccer Association.

All are welcome, even if you are unsure about your commitment to coaching this upcoming year. Please use the link below to rsvp so I know who my favorite club members are.
