Joining St. Vincents

We cater for all age groups and capabilities, and are always welcoming new members.

Juvenile

Juvenile games begin at mini leagues (ages 4-7) and continue up to Under 16. We follow the ethos of the GAA Player Pathway; Children are initially introduced to Gaelic games with an emphasis on fun (“Learn to play”). As the child progresses through their teen years they take on more competitive games (“Play to compete”). After Juvenile, they go though to the adult games (“Compete to win”).

Mini Leagues. Mini leagues is for boys and girls, aged between 4 and 7. It runs from 10:30 am to 12:00pm every Saturday.

There’s no need to ring ahead; simply turn up and give your name.
Mini leagues is a great way to introduce your child to Football, Camogie and Hurling and is always focused on having fun. Groups are kept small to ensure every child gets to enjoy themselves, and each week someone gets a medal for the effort they put in.

Registration costs €15 and weekly subs are €2. If you want to ensure GAA is for your child, turn up and give them a go. We’ll not chase you for registration fee until you’re happy your child likes it.

Mini leagues are run by a team of 30 coaches, all of whom are trained and Garda Vetted.
