The Nashville Gaelic Athletic Club is a great way to start playing Irish Sports. It's also a great way to meet people, stay in shape and learn something new! New members will be added to the NGAC Slack channel to receive news about upcoming trainings, scrimmages, and matches.
Registration follows two steps. Both steps must be completed to play in NGAC organized play, and in matches versus other USGAA clubs.
- NGAC membership: All players and social members must register membership with Nashville GAC. 2023 fees are $30.
- USGAA registration: All players must register with and pay annual dues to the United States Gaelic Athletic Association. 2023 fees are $42 (camogie) and $63 (football and hurling).
