The Camogie Association provides young women with the opportunity to play Camogie, encouraging them to stay with sport through their teenage years and later into life. The Association maintains a steady level of growth, with a 5% year-on-year increase in registered personal membership since 2014. There are currently 560 Camogie clubs throughout Ireland.
