Welcome to the EUSC Website!
Shinty is Scotland's most authentic national sport. Originally hailing from the Scottish Highlands, today the sport is fiercely competed not only all over Scotland but all over the world, at many different levels. Shinty is a fast paced and skilful game with many links to the Irish sport of Hurling. The sport is going from strength to strength with more players participating every season. University Shinty offers both new and experienced players the chance to participate in top quality league and cup competitions whilst offering social events unique to the university experience.

Whilst comparisons are often made with field hockey , the two sports have several important differences. In shinty, a player is allowed to play the ball in the air and is allowed to use both sides of the stick. The stick may also be used to block and to tackle, although a player may not come down on an opponent's stick, a practice called hacking. A player may tackle using the body as long as this is shoulder-to-shoulder as in association football The sport was derived from the same root as the Irish game of hurling but has developed different rules and features.

    What is Shinty?

    Shinty (camanachd in Scots Gaelic) is a stick and ball game thought to be a direct ancestor of Golf and Ice Hockey and a cousin to Field Hockey and Irish Hurling. Historical evidence points to almost 2000 years of shinty in the Highlands of Scotland, and tales have the mythic heroes Cuchullin and Fionn MacCumhaill playing this most Gaelic of pastimes long before that. Traditionally part of New Year's celebrations throughout the Highlands, shinty is older than kilts by far. Today more than a hundred teams play the sport, from primary school through to Premier League.
    Why haven't I heard of Shinty before?
    The Shinty season has traditionally run from Fall to Spring and so most folks who visit during summer vacation have not had an opportunity to see the game being played. The Camanachd Association shifted the sport to a summer season in 2004, running from March to October, so no tourists will have a chance to catch a game during their vacations!
    It is also true that Shinty is not played in all parts of Scotland. The game has close ties with the Gaelic culture and has generally flourished in the Gaidhealtachd - the areas in which Gaelic is spoken. A great many teams can be found in close proximity to the Great Glen, from the Inverness area to Fort William and Lochaber, though teams also exist in other locales, including Skye, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

    Shinty was played in its original form throughout North and South America by Scottish settlers until the early 1900s when the practice died out. Shinty, and its close Irish relative hurling , are recognised as being the progenitors of ice hockey and are an important part of North America's modern sporting heritage. Despite this tradition, shinty itself went unplayed for almost 100 years at any serious level until the mid 1980s when Scottish Americans once again took an interest in the sport, with the first club being established in northern California . Since 2000, a concerted initiative, with support from the Camanachd Association in Scotland , has seen a revival of the sport. There is now a US Camanachd Association and Cup and clubs are also making the trip to Scotland to play tours. The Camanachd Cup itself made the long trip to New York City for the Tartan Day celebrations.

    Introduced by the Irish over 2,000 years ago with Christianity.
    Official Shinty Website: www.shinty.com Shinty is unique to Scotland and one of the oldest games in the world. The game is similar to games such as hockey and lacrosse in some aspects and has historical roots with golf and ice hockey. As with lacrosse the game is a fast moving aerial game where physical fitness is tested to the limits. However, different from both hockey and lacrosse as in Shinty, feet can be used to stop the ball but not the hands (unless you are the goal-keeper). You can carrry the ball on your caman which can be also be swung above shoulder height.....a skilful eye and a sense of survival are paramount!!

    The game of shinty or camanachd as it is known in the Gaidhealtachd or Gaelic speaking lands, is an ancient game. It is thought to have been introduced to Scotland along with the Gaelic language by Irish/Celtic immigrants some two thousand year ago or brought here by Irish missionaries in 6AD. Shinty enthusiasts even claim that golf was derived from shinty players practising driving the ball with the caman, the curved stick used in the game. Tiger Woods might be surprised at this claim but he would undoubtedly play a mean shinty game! According to John Mackenzie, president of the Camanachd Association "Shinty offers wide participation. It's a very physical sport that can be enjoyed at all levels. The game is at a great point right now with expansion through youth development which has been going for the last couple of years". The 2004 season saw the association taking a big step by changing the season, starting from March until November. This pilot intended to benefit both players and spectators, and it is hoped will further improve the experience. "We hope with the season now running from spring through to autumn to encourage more visitors to the Highlands to come and watch this very exciting sport. Having a summer season has also been continued for 2005.

    THE WASHINGTON CAMANACHD CLUB The Washington Camanachd Club is a group of like-minded enthusiasts for the traditional Scottish game of Shinty (also called Camanchd), based in Seattle, WA. The ancient and unique stick sport of Shinty is played here in a purely recreational format and is a favorite among people of all ages and walks of life. Shinty dates back to the early days of the Celtic peoples and is deeply rooted in the strength, courage and stamina of those people. During the last 1600 years of Shinty, a few other more well-known games have evolved from it, including Ice Hockey and Golf. Scotland's only original team sport of Shinty is currently played by over 45 clubs in Scotland. Playing according to the rules and guidelines set down by the Camanachd Association and in participation with the US Camanachd Organization , the members of the WACC hope to foster and develop the game of Shinty in the state of Washington, creating a lasting structure that will help future generations enjoy the game as much as we do.
    We welcome all interested players to join us in the fun of Shinty. We are entirely made up of novice to intermediate levels of players and try to practice regularly in the Seattle area (and hold practices in the other areas of the state as often as possible). We are recruiting players from the Greater Seattle area, with Co-Ed Teams playing and recruiting throughout the Tacoma - Seattle - Vancouver, BC Corridor. You are invited to participate in this fast-paced game:
