For four days, Thursday 7/25 through Sunday 7/28, over 2,500 kids (ages 6 to 18) from across the U.S. and including Canada will be at the Greater Chester Valley Sports Association Complex in Malvern, Pennsylvania (137 Line Rd, Malvern, PA 19355) competing in the traditional Irish sports of Gaelic football, hurling, and camogie – think soccer meets rugby with a little basketball, lacrosse, and baseball thrown in for good measure.
This Continental Youth Championship (CYC) takes place on an annual basis at selected cities in the U.S. and is the biggest tournament of Gaelic Sports outside of Ireland! If you are looking for something different to do this summer, come cheer on our local youth clubs, the Delco Gaels, the Glenside Gaels, and the Shamrocks, in the tournament.
