“It is probably the most diverse group we have within the Rush National Team program (RNT). Out of the 16 players attending the trip, there is 9 different Rush clubs represented. International travel always brings about new challenges from jetlag, the different foods (nutrition) to the cultures we will experience both on and off the field as a group. Europe is producing more and more quality female players, so this will be a very different challenge than what we are use to within the US.” - Russell Finch, Head coach, Girls U15 RNT and RNT Program Director.
