What's Happening
Welcome to our Gaelic football season for 2017.
As our player numbers don't appear to be enough to run separate men's and women's competitions, we are continuing with the Social Mixed football this year. So here's what's going on:
Social Mixed football - continues Sat 25 November with the fourth round of the Social Mixed league, 4pm, Eastside Lutheran College. If you are not yet registered you need to take out the membership package. This will enable you to play in the competition which runs through until the end of the year.
Training - for the Tasmanian representative teams to play in the Australasian Regional Championships is on Wednesdays at Rugby Park, 10 Selfs Pt Rd, New Town.
Australasian Regional Championships - in its inaugural year is being hosted by Tasmania. This is a new tournament created by the Australasian GFHAA to provide more appropriate-level playing opportunities for teams from regional areas. Teams from SA, Victoria, NSW and Queensland and locked in so there's a lot to play for and we hope to field competitive Tasmanian sides in both the men's and women's divisions. The tournament will be on Saturday 18 November at Olinda Grove sportsgrounds, Mt Nelson.
