Hurling is a field game played by two teams using a wooden stick (hurley) and a small ball (sliotar), with the aim being to use the hurley to strike the sliotar and hit it between the opposing team's goalposts. Having been unregulated in the past, nowadays there are fifteen players on adult teams and the game is played on a clearly marked pitch. The skills are transmitted through coaching and games and the Gaelic Athletic Association and Camogie Association play a key role in transmitting the related values and skills.
