U13 Girls ID Camp Underway in ATL

01.02.13 - Rush ID Camp Day 1Over 50 of the best U13 girls in Rush nation have converged on Atlanta, Georgia for a five day ID camp hosted by Georgia Rush.

U13 Rush Select Coach Russell Finch and his staff have worked hard the last few months to identify top players from within the Rush system and the 5 day camp will be used to set the roster for the Presidents Day Tournament in February along with the Open Cup in Alabama in April and Surf Cup later on this year. 

"In our opinion, this is the best way to gauge where players are at. We need to put them in an environment where they can learn different systems and how to play with different players. Playing a half dozen games over the next few days will show us a lot," said Finch.

13 Clubs are present in Atlanta and although today was considered a 'travel day' the players getting to town early took advantage of the indoor facility at the Stars Soccer Complex/Georgia Rush headquarters as they jumped into some fun pick-up games. It didn't take the competitive juices long to start playing and within minutes, players were racing to their bags to pull out their cleats and get after it. 

Once all players had arrived, the group met their Georgia Rush host families and headed home for some rest prior to play day tomorrow. Thursdays schedule includes on-field functional training, classroom sessions and games against the Georgia ODP 98's and 99's.
