What’s an Indy GAA Draft Party like?

The Indy GAA Draft party has become a tradition over the past 10+ years, but sometimes it’s easy for us old-timers to assume everyone knows what these types of events are, but in reality there are many folks newer to the club, or those who have yet to join us that may be interested in knowing a little bit about it. With that I figured it was worth providing a brief overview for the uninitiated.

The actual draft takes place in a sequestered location. The captains for each team convene to choose their teams using a variety of strategies and methodologies to ensure they translate the perfect team on paper to the championship team on the field.

With that said, we don’t think of this event being held solely for draft, after all, we do call it a party!

This event is really intended to build excitement around the upcoming season and get members both old and new reacquainted and re-energized after a winter away from the pitch. All other members outside of the draft room have a chance to relax, mingle, and pontificate as to what the teams will look like for the upcoming year.

After the teams have been selected the captains emerge to announce their picks and so ensues the strategizing and game-planning for the season to come.

Details for this Year’s Event

If that sounds up your alley we hope you’ll join us for the 2022 Draft Party coming up on Sunday, February 20th at 4pm at Centerpoint Brewing.

All are welcome to attend, even if you’re not registered to play, so we encourage you to bring friends and family. If you intend to play and would like to be entered into the draft please make sure you register no later than February 16th!


Drafts Over the Years

Also, please take a second to check out the photos below as the links to some of the photo albums I was able to pull up from years past. Over the years the event has been held at a number of different places, including the Blarney Stone Pub, Santorini’s Greek Kitchen, Flat 12 Bierworks, the Hard Rock Cafe, Triton Brewing, and as of the last few years Centerpoint Brewing. Flipping though these photos was a definitely a nice little walk down memory lane, and I hope they are for you as well.

After a week off for Labor Day we’re back in action this Sunday. let’s quickly review the results of the last set of matches as well as review this weekend’s match-ups.

2021 Junior B Nationals Team

Week 6 Results, USGAA Nationals, and More

After an unplanned week off we return to the fields this weekend for Week 7 of the 2021 Pub League. Let’s take a quick second to review the results of Week 6 and

Skyline and Guinness put on a thrilling display but in the end Skyline eked out a one point victory in the last seconds of the match, Centerpoint and Dugan & Voland duked it out in a close one, and Hope Plumbing is still searching for a win.

USGAA Nationals

The club had a group of lads travel to Boston this past weekend to compete in the USGAA Nationals, and while a good match was had the team fell to Milwaukee in the first round. Next year nationals will be held right in our backyard up in Chicago.

Check out these great photos from the match →

Tappers Arcade Challenge

On September 4th at 2pm we will be holding an arcade challenge at Tappers. Membership Chair Nick Wilson has formulated a series of competitions for members to participate in for chances to win a free drink. For more details please reach out to Nick!

Week 7 Has Been Postponed

After much deliberation on the board and consultation with team captains we’ve decided to postpone this weekend’s matches to next weekend.

This decision was made due to the fact that we have enough members traveling to the USGAA Nationals this weekend that nearly every team will be unable to fill a full roster.

We still welcome any folks that are still in town to come out to the fields for a stick-toss/scrimmage.

What does this mean for the schedule?

Luckily not too much! The schedule was created this year with a built-in make up week on September 19th. This was originally going to be used as a rain day or as an extra week of practice for teams prior to the playoffs, which start the following week, on September 26th.

All matches have simply slid by one week, allowing us to still complete the league on time. All calendars and team matchups have been updated to reflect the new dates and you can look below for the next scheduled matches.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns please reach out to us, board@indygaa.com

Week 5 Results

Daredevil Brewing notches their first win by handing Hotel Tango their first loss while Skyline and Guinness are still undefeated. Only one undeated will remain after their match up next week!
