There will be challenge Games of Hurling/Camogie & Men’s Football this Monday, the 27th of July, from 7pm until 9pm at Vanier College.
In addition, there will be Ladies’ football Training happening at 8pm. This is ideal for beginners or those who want to brush up on the fundamentals.
If you’d like to attend either, you’ll need to register online first.
The Montreal GAA have been working hard with Vanier College safety officers to allow us to return to training. A huge thank you to everyone who worked to make this happen.
Moving forward the strict protocol for attending gaelic games practice/training is as follows:
1) Sign up for practice online and also complete eligibility health questionnaire linked here: Deadline for each training session is 1pm each Monday or when spaces are filled.
2) Have completed and printed out the new insurance waiver form which now covers Covid-19 related incidents [English][French]
3) Have completed and printed out the Access to Vanier College form [English & French]
As numbers are restricted per session due to social distancing rules, groups of allowed attendees for each week will be released through regular player WhatsApp channels. Players who do not make the cut for a practice session will be given priority the following week.
See you out there!
Whether it’s to go to the gym together on a Monday, do basic skills together on a Wednesday, play cards together on a Thursday, go out for some craic together on a Friday, play our gaelic games together on a Saturday, watch GAA games in Ireland on the TV together on a Sunday, there is hardly a day goes by throughout the year when our members are not together. Through this togetherness we have become known as The Shamily.
We are now in strange times of self-isolation and although not physically together we remain together as a strong community. Reach out to all your team-mates, club members and beyond to make sure we are all remaining strong and healthy.
With the announcement that all sporting facilities will remain closed until at least May 1st, the current Winter Superleague is POSTPONED. We are working on several possibilities to finish out the current league once social distancing measures are lifted.
Please follow the latest updated government guidelines on self-isolation and safety.
