The JP Ryan’s Camogie club was launched in the summer of 2011.
The club participated in the annual Seattle Gaelic Games Tournament in June of that year, playing against the Seattle Gaels Camogie team. The JP Ryan’s were victorious in this, their first official camogie game, beating the Seattle Gaels team. The second camogie game of the day in that tournament saw an amalgamation of both teams, which turned out to be a very competitive and enjoyable game.
Overall, the first ever camogie club in Vancouver had a relatively successful year in 2011, and we are hoping to attract new members going forward. The club will travel to the Seattle Gaelic Games tournament again in 2012 and we will be playing games at the Western Canadian Championships to be held in Vancouver in August.
If you are interested in playing camogie with the JP Ryan’s, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our representatives will get back to you as soon as possible with details of training times, locations and tournament information.
Our Camogie Facebook group page at http://www.facebook.com/groups/162132803849785/ will be updated regularly with training information.
