Gaelic Football

Gaelic football is an Irish team sport.

It is played between two teams of fifteen players on a rectangular grass pitch.

The object of the sport is to score by kicking or punching the ball into the other team’s goals or between two upright posts above the goals and over a crossbar 8.2 feet above the ground.

To incorporate this fun game into both our Irish theme and the Gross Motor Developmental Domain, we decided to create a preschool version of this!

Using tires, tubes, and a bowl, we constructed our own H-shaped goals and gave every child the opportunity to score by throwing a ball into the goal.

We had so much fun doing it!
