The Tacoma Hounds are super excited to announce an awesome new partnership with Tacoma Strength starting this August!
On July 14th, the Tacoma Hounds were able to volunteer and set up a recruitment booth at Sumner CrossFit’s “Sumner Smackdown” event. The competition took place at Sunset Stadium on Main St. in Sumner.
The Tacoma Hounds are always recruiting new members and players, but the upcoming series of Rookie Days offers any interested beginners the most complete crash-course for developing a solid grasp of Hurling’s basic skills. There’s no better opportunity to get up to speed with a quick primer in this exciting sport, and one or more sessions will better prepare attendees for a standard practice.
The Tacoma Hounds are excited to reveal one of the most unique kits ever to grace the world of Hurling – the Dazzle Kit!
Over Memorial Day Weekend in May, the Hounds traveled down to San Diego to volunteer and help run part of this year’s West Coast 7s competition by coordinating Field 3. The tournament’s group stage began on Saturday (5/26), with the Semi-Final and Final rounds culminating on Sunday (5/27).
Without further ado, we present to you Tacoma Co-op’s brand new, original Home Kit!
Over the weekend, the Hounds spent some time down at the Sean-nós Festival held in Olympia on The Evergreen State College’s campus. While there to put on a quick hurling demonstration, we were able to mingle with some of the other festival-goers. We’ll have to practice to keep from butchering them, but we tried to pick up a few phrases for when we send a couple Co-op members to Ireland in June.
One of the Co-op’s members, Sean Davis, was honored as a Finalist at the 17th Annual Ahead of the Class award ceremony on April 2nd 2018. 10 teachers from the Renton School District were nominated for the awards, 5 of whom were chosen as winners. The Ahead of the Class award program was founded by the Renton Chamber of Commerce, Renton schools, and Renton businesses to enhance community awareness of the excellence of education in Renton.
Did you know that on July 14th 1873, a historic telegraph declared Tacoma as the terminus of the Transcontinental Railroad? Well 145 years on, Tacoma Co-op and the Hartford Kevin Barrys are forming a transcontinental team to take on Ireland!
