ABOUT ST. PETER'S HURLING CLUB
St. Peter's Hurling Club of San Diego was established in May 2010. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization. We are founded by volunteers, and are dedicated to the promotion of the sport of hurling and its cultural heritage. Our mission is to provide opportunities to learn and play hurling for our members of all ages, skill levels, and gender. We also seek to promote greater awareness of the Irish culture and San Diego Irish community.
Hurling is the national sport of Ireland, and by some estimates is over 3,000 years old. It incorporate elements of lacrosse, baseball, ice hockey, field hockey, soccer, rugby, football, and many other sports, although it predates them all. The action is fast and aggressive, with players using their hurls (sticks) to knock the sliotar (ball) into the goal for 3 points or through a pair of uprights for 1 point.
