USA in Winter

(Oldest Posts First)

Just wondering do any clubs over there(east or west coast) take players over in the winter or is all the football totally finished then?

most clubs do but the playing season over here doesnt last that long. Over here in Boston, the season starts end of April with the O'Brien Cup and then the last weekend in May the championship starts and concludes towards the end of August.
Check out Armagh Notre Dame if Interested.

there is no football but the clubs are interested in having people over before april because then they are counted as home based players. (there is only so many incoming players than can be played)

Wingwoder,if they are over before April,how can they stay until the end of the football in August,as would that not upset the whole 90 day stay thing for the players in the US?
