The Gaiscioch (pronounced Gosh-Kia) athletics program began originally in San Jose, California as a social gaming & athletics community. At it's inception the Gaiscioch formed 2 flag football teams which played one per week. This year round dual-season team went on to win a championship in the winter San Jose Parks & Recreation League, Division C in the Winter of 2002. The team ran through 2004 and even formed a softball team to play in a Twin Creeks Sunday Night league.
In 2005, Benjamin Foley moved north to Oregon along with Don Rush. The two ended up in Eugene, Oregon where in 2006 they re-formed the Gaiscioch in the Maximus Sports Flag Football League's Recreational Division. In their first season the Gaiscioch made it to the championship game to narrowly lose in double overtime. The team ran 2 seasons before suffering the loss of players due to the semi-pro tackle football season.
In 2010 after yet another move to Porland, Oregon, Benjamin Foley formed up the Gaiscioch Flag-Football team in the Men's League of Underdog Sports Portland Division. This highly recreational, non-contact league introduced with it a new wealth of opportunity and players. The Gaiscioch are actively seeking new players both men and women to run in their year round program. In the coming years we will have Men's Recreational Non-Contact Football, Men's Competitive Contact Football, and a Casually Co-Ed football team with hopes to be able to enter tournaments state wide by mid to late 2012.
