The dates and location for the 2012 Rush Festival have been finalized. Virginia Rush will host the Festival in Virginia Beach beginning July 16th and running till July 25th.
"The Virginia Rush is honored and excited to host the 2012 Rush Festival,” said Virginia Rush Technical Director Jay Hoffman. “Through the years, our players have always had a great experience at the Festival and we are excited to host it on the East Coast next year. We have a great resort location and first-class facilities. We invite the Rush Family to come join us for a great soccer experience at the beach.”
For the second time, the Rush Festival will be held for two different age groups as both the U12 and U14 age groups will each have a five day Festival full of games, practices and social events.
“The Rush Festival has grown into a truly unique event. With two successful events back to back last year, we are excited to be able to offer this experience again to both the U12 and U14 age groups in 2012,” commented Rush Soccer Technical Director Andrew Kummer. “With the great facilities and wonderful location that Virginia Rush has to offer, we are confident we will put on the best Festival thus far.”
U12 teams will kick off the festivities on Monday July 16th and play their final games on Friday the 20th. U14 teams will begin their Festival the evening of the 21st with the traditional Opening Ceremony and will conclude 25th.
