GAA Fundraising Ideas
Easy Fundraising Ideas For GAA Clubs
Sean & Dylan are brothers that are passionate about their Irish heritage. GAA Fundraising Ideas will help protect their heritage and help them raise money easily and risk free.
Participating in the Gaelic games here in the United States is a big part of their family culture. They joined the local Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) in their state & now are looking for some easy fundraising ideas for GAA clubs.
They are not alone.
The USGAA tells us that there are 130 adult and youth clubs in 50 cities across the USA with 5388 affiliated members.
Our Best Fundraising Ideas For GAA Clubs Expenses & Travel Costs
It takes money to have a local GAA club, doesn’t it?
After all, Gaelic football is one of the few strictly amateur sports in the world. That means all of the players, coaches, and managers are prohibited from receiving any kind of payment. That also means whether you are playing Gaelic Football, Hurling, Camogie, Gaelic handball or Rounders, you need to rely on fundraisers to help offset some of your costs.
- First of all, you need a field for training and playing games.
- In addition, you need Player Injury Insurance because most towns will require a limited liability insurance policy to use the field. (Let’s face it, players can get hurt playing this sport!)
- You also have to buy playing/training equipment (Face masks, helmets, a hurley, sliotar, H-shaped goalposts, etc.)
- Finally, there are team sports jerseys to purchase.
In addition it cost money to travel to participate in tournaments:
- USGAA youth clubs take part in the Continental Youth Championship (CYC) every July. Youth sports teams travel from all over the USA & Canada to play in this tournament.
- Junior, senior and intermediate adult teams compete in the County Championship, the All American tournaments & the USGAA Finals playoffs.
- Furthermore, there are travel costs to the annual USGAA convention.
