Why Get Involved?

the Youth Team is always looking for players between the ages of 6-16 interested in getting involved with the game. Pittsburgh GAA Youth Football was organized to encourage young American players to get involved in Gaelic games and promote this important part of Irish culture in the Pittsburgh area. A sport that has often been described as a hybrid of soccer, basketball and rugby, but so much more. The Youth team has produced over 50 youngsters playing Gaelic football. The Team has also produced several Minor Championships along with many NACB Minor Select players. There are currently a number of former Youth players playing for the men's team today.
