Start Spreading the News . . . Support Breezy Point Disaster Relief and sample the thrill of Gaelic football first hand
Building on the visit of the Gaelic Players Association to Breezy Point earlier this year (see pictures below) where stars of Gaelic games helped with the reconstruction effort, the GPA is hosting the Breezy Gaelic Sports Team Building Day on June 8 next.
Sign your company up now for a unique team-building experience for men and women by participating in a day of Gaelic sports. The event will bring work colleagues, family and friends together in a wonderful celebration of Irish sport and culture at the Rockaways community of Breezy Point.
Hosted to help boost morale as the area continues its recovery from Superstorm Sandy, the event will also help raise funds for the Breezy Point Disaster Relief effort and support the GPA's Education Fund, assisting amateur county GAA players with their college careers.
Among the events, two Gaelic football competitions designed to cater for novices and experienced players alike, will take place during a special day of games, music, entertainment, competitions, coaching and barbecue fun.
Former stars of Gaelic football inclusing Kevin Cassidy from Donegal and Eamon O' Hara from Sligo will be on hand to coach participating companies, helping players to get the most from this unique team-building opportunity.
The Breezy Cup will cater for novice players, men and women who have had no experience of Gaelic football but would like to give it a go, experience the thrill and enjoy the fun. Competing with other rookies, Breezy Cup contestants will learn the basics of Gaelic football and get the chance to put their new-found skills into practice.
Experienced participants, men and women who currently play Gaelic football or who have played in the past, can compete with their company for The Irish American Cup. Our resident experts, former stars of the game, will be on hand to coach each team throughout the tournament, adding spice to what promises to be an exciting day of competitive fun.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to experience the excitement of our national games at this exclusive event while helping to make a real difference to the lives of others.
Team Participation Fee: $5,000 with proceeds going to Rebuild Breezy and GPA's Education Programs.
