WHO ARE THE COUGARS?
The Cougars GFC are a Gaelic Football club based in Los Angeles. At over 60 active members, we are the largest and only GAA club located in LA. Our 3 teams (JC, JD and ladies) train twice a week and have two to three games per month against other clubs in the SoCal area and beyond. Our season runs from March to September every year with several social events along the way! Our training sessions are open to all skill levels and backgrounds so get in touch, grab your boots and we'll see you there!
WTF IS GAELIC FOOTBALL?
If soccer, basketball, handball and rugby had a drunken threesome, the resulting accident-child would be Gaelic Football. It's a high-fitness, technical sport born and raised in Ireland that is rapidly spreading across the United States. There are clubs in almost every major city in the US, one of which hosts the North American Finals every September. Including the Cougars, there are 11 teams in California alone with the Cougars being the only club location in Los Angeles.
