Last Thursday I took a ride over to check out a free clinic and practice put on by the Allentown Hibernian Hurling Club.
I got there and luckily there were two other students with familiar faces!
The lesson started off with some basics led by Dave and Jessica who guided us on terminology, rules, use of the hurl (the stick) the Sliotar (pronounced “slidder”) and then got Cagey and Minerva suited up to participate in a live scrimmage!
It was pretty fun and real exciting! This is a fast paced and unique sport. Worth the effort to check out as they are giving these free clinics all April! They provide the instruction and the gear, you just show up. For more information on the free clinic, check out their Facebook page.
When: Thursday, April 7th at 6:00pm
Where: 3436 Winchester Rd, Allentown, Pennsylvania 18104 (In the playing field behind Calvary Temple of Allentown)
What to bring: All equipment provided, wear sports appropriate clothes and footwear.
How much: It’s free!
