WHO ARE THE COUGARS?
The Cougars GFC (Gaelic Football Club) is based in Los Angeles, California. At over 70 active members, we are the largest GAA club located in LA. Our two men’s teams and one women’s team 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 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.

Culver City High School
The Cougars train on Wednesday evenings, under the lights at Culver City High School. The intent of these sessions is to focus on technique, game-like scenarios and new player education. We welcome players at all levels to attend.
Santa Monica Beach Tower 25
On non-game day Saturdays and when we don’t have a field booked we hold a fitness focused training session on the beach in Santa Monica at lifeguard Tower 25. Short term, low cost parking is available at the Tower 26 Short Term Parking Lot. We meet at the picnic tables by Dorothy Green Park.
