    What is Hurling

    Hurling, an outdoor team game of ancient Gaelic Irish origin. There is a similar game for women called camogie.

    - The objective of the game is for players to use a wooden stick called a hurley, to hit a small ball called a sliotar between the opponents' goalposts either over the crossbar for one point, or under the crossbar into a net guarded by a goalkeeper for three points.

    --Other than traditional wooden ash hurls, composite synthetic hurls are also very popular in American Hurling.

     

    -The sliotar can be caught in the hand and carried for not more than four steps, struck in the air, or struck on the ground with the hurley. It can be kicked, or slapped with an open hand (the hand pass) for short-range passing.

    --The sliotar, slightly smaller than a baseball. Wrapped in leather

     

    -A player who wants to carry the ball for more than four steps has to bounce or balance the sliotar on the end of the stick (solo-ing), and the ball can only be handled twice while in the player’s possession.

    --A player attempting to pick the sliotar up off the ground, cannot use their hands directly. Typical methods are the jab lift or roll lift

     

    -Provided that a player has at least one foot on the ground, a player may make a shoulder-to-shoulder charge on an opponent who is in possession of the ball or is playing the ball or when both players are moving in the direction of the ball to play it.
