Gaelic Football Club - est. 1975

Youth Football


Fun. Fitness. Friends.

Join the excitement in learning Gaelic Football through our FUNdamentals program. This program encourages kids of all ages to develop the fundamental movement skills of Agility, Balance and Coordination (ABCs). The skills and movements inherent in Gaelic Football are similar and transferrable to just about every team sport played by kids today. Players range in age from U6 to U16.  Programs are open to girls and boys with camps and clinics organized by the Youth Development Officer throughout the year. See below for our Youth Programs page for full details of our current programs. Check out our About Gaelic Football page to learn more about the game and to watch the Original Beautiful Game video.

The Ottawa Gaels also participate in the annual Continental Youth Championships, the largest Gaelic games tournament outside of Ireland. The CYC is a 4-day tournament, held the last week in July or first week in August in a selected host city (e.g. San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, New York or Philadelphia).  Over 2,000 youth players participate in this tournament and compete against teams from the United States and Canada. Visit our CYC page for full details. We also welcome individuals interested in volunteering in the area of coaching, refereeing and event coordination. Training is available for players, coaches and referees regardless of experience or knowledge of the game. For more information, simply email us at  All inquiries will be responded to within 24 hours. Thank you for your interest in the Ottawa Gaels Youth Program.
