    Learn to Play Gaelic football!  This Live Gaelic Football Demonstration is a free youth event where we show local children the skills involved in Gaelic football and then teach them how to play the game of Gaelic football.  Following this youth event, children and their families have the opportunity to stay and watch the Albany Rebels Men's GAA Team take on the Syracuse GAA Team in an exciting 2019 New York Cup matchup.

    Gaelic football, commonly referred to as football or Gaelic, is an Irish team sport. It combines the skills and properties of soccer, rugby and basketball. It is played between two teams of 15 players (13 in the US) on a rectangular grass pitch. The objective of the sport is to score points by scoring the ball through the other team's goal (3 points) or over the crossbar between two upright posts (1 point).
