The Heartland Division was established in 2016 to provide support to clubs growing and playing the games of Camogie (Women’s Hurling), Hurling, and Men’s and Women’s Gaelic Football. As one of the 10 divisions of the USGAA, Heartland’s clubs are primarily made up of native born players.
The USGAA is the governing body responsible for promoting the sports of Hurling and Gaelic Football in the United States (except NYC). There are over 130 adult and youth clubs, in 10 divisions under their administration. The USGAA oversees activities leading to, and culminating in the USGAA Finals, where the North American Champions are crowned!
Founded in 1884, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) is Ireland’s largest sporting organisation. It is celebrated as one of the great amateur sporting associations in the world. It is part of the Irish consciousness and plays an influential role in Irish society that extends far beyond the basic aim of promoting Gaelic games, both in Ireland and abroad.
