Our 
Story

Gaelic games has been part of the Greater Toronto Area since the late 19th century. The Toronto Governing Body was established in 1947 with annual League and Championship competitions for Men's and Ladies.

 

 

With a growing appetite to establish a west end youth team the Toronto Michael Davitts Gaelic Athletic Club was formed to enhance Gaelic games in our community by fostering inclusivity and sportsmanship. Through cost-effective activities, we aim to engage all sectors and create a welcoming environment for sporting, cultural, and social participation.

Toronto Michael Davitts GAC is a Not For Profit Organization focused on developing skills for boys and girls ages 3-14. We will be leveraging programs designed by the GAA through their grassroots program called Go Games.

GO Games is designed specifically for children. It's a fundamental part of the GAA's youth development strategy, aiming to introduce Gaelic games to kids in a fun and inclusive manner.

These games are tailored to different age groups and skill levels, providing a platform for children to learn and participate in Gaelic football, hurling, camogie, and handball. The emphasis of GO Games is on enjoyment, skill development, and fostering a love for sports.

The format of GO Games often involves modified rules, smaller teams, and shorter game durations, ensuring that children can actively engage and learn without feeling overwhelmed. It's a fantastic way for kids to experience sports in a supportive environment, allowing them to develop their abilities while also promoting values like teamwork, respect, and sportsmanship.
