U14G Select to Travel to Germany/Holland
Rush Soccer and the adidas International Travel Program have established a unique partnership. The main focus of the partnership is to offer a unique International Soccer Experience Program to Rush members.
The program was initiated last year with the U16 boys Select team traveling to Madrid for a 10 day trip. In addition, two boys were selected to travel with a group of players from all over the country that adidas identified as top players, on another international trip to Spain.
This year the trip has been assigned to the GU14 Rush Select Team. While the two boys selected to travel with the adidas elite group are chosen from the 99 birth year. The girls team will participate in a 10 day trip to Germany and Holland in late August. The International trip includes games against local European clubs, as well as training at Frankfurt FFC and Ajax of Amsterdam. The International Program is growing rapidly and in early April the BU13 Rush Select age group will be competing in a tournament in Italy with two teams. The program offers opportunities to all partner clubs, all teams and individual players. For more information and details or if you are interested in traveling abroad for soccer experiences please contact Rush Soccer Regional Technical Director Arian Hoxha.
The GU14’s were the first Select team to implement an identification program by way of an ID camp. The group had ID camps in Atlanta at both U13 and U14 (at right), allowing coaches to see over 100 players from within this age group from the entire Rush organization. The U14 Select team coached by Russell Finch (CO Rush) has an impressive record of 15-3-2 in all competitions, including tournaments such as Surf Cup and PDT (twice).
