Mumbai Rush Visit Colorado
12 Players and one coach from Mumbai Rush in India, are in Colorado for the next few weeks learning American customs and the 'Rush Way to Play' from the place where Rush began! The players are staying with members of the Colorado Rush family during their stay.
Training sessions, sightseeing and more will highlight the trip for the team from Mumbai.
When asked the purpose of the trip, Rush Soccer President Tim Schulz commented, "We are building bridges between our two clubs. The players hosting and visiting will not only gain new international friendships but also learn each-others customs and culture."
A very new club in the grand scheme of things, Mumbai Rush is growing quickly. "Over the last year, Mumbai Rush has been in the local news papers with a lot of promotions. One of them being the trip to Denver," said Mumbai Rush Technical Director Mitch Bickmore. "A lot of people here have been very skeptical of this trip. The word on the streets is they think its a scam because it sounds too good to be true. Now that we have made good on our promise, I except a lot of positive chit chat from the Mumbai community." Bickmore continued, "There is no doubt that this first trip will open the floodgates. Our numbers will increase in all our programs simply because now we have credibility with our members. I can't say enough about how important this trip is for Mumbai Rush's growth in the very near future!"
All at Colorado Rush and Rush Soccer are happy to have the Indian contingent in our backyard and look forward to getting to know everyone over the next few weeks!
Also a special thank you to the CO Rush membership who have opened up their homes to make this all possible!
