Russell Finch has been appointed as the new Director of Rush Select! Russell will be taking over for Nik Penn who will continue to work with Select Teams and will be turning his attention to the development and advancement of coaching education within the Rush organization.
"Russell has showed the passion and the enthusiasm for the program over the last few years," commented Penn. "I feel with this energy and his new ideas, it is the perfect person to take the program up another notch."
Finch, who coaches the current U14 girls, was the first Select coach to implement ID camps that have since become a common practice within the Select system. He will be leading the trip to Germany and Holland for the 14 girls in October. In the past year Rush Select teams have competed in events in Spain and Italy along with multiple events in the USA including the Disney Cup, Surf Cup, Open Cup in Alabama and the PDT in Phoenix where 5 of 10 teams made the Championship game in 2014 with 3 being crowned champs.
