Free Style Hurling/Camogie - Show Your Talents!

Free Style Hurling/Camogie is an initiative which aims to promote the game of hurling/camogie worldwide. Anyone can post their 'free style' hurling video online and enter the competition.

It would be great to see some entries from some of our many talented players at Kilmacud Crokes. The closing date for the competition is the 31st August 2013. So let's get hurling - free style!

This year we have had an amazing Championship. At the beginning of this month the GAA launched a new joint GAA/GPA initiative - Freestyle Hurling. The aim is to help promote the game of hurling across the world using modern media to showcase the skills of the game.

Freestyle Hurling is the art of expressing yourself with a Hurley and sliotar while performing skills and trick shots using any part of the body. The challenge is simple: pick up your hurley and show the world what you can do by posting your very own ‘Freestyle Hurling’ videos online. More information on how to enter the competition can be found at www.gaa.ie/freestylehurling

There are two main videos on the Official GAA YouTube channel to explain the concept in more detail. Freestyle Hurling videos have been viewed 100,000 times.

The GAA has already received entries from around the country and one of the entries has been viewed over 25,000 times online.
The three finalistsof the competition as judged by a panel will have the unique opportunity to appear at half time at the All-Ireland Hurling Final day on September 8 and the overall winner will secure a place on the All-Stars trip to China later in the year.
 
The competition is open to ages and closes on 31 August 2013.
