The second ever Rush Select ID camp for the U13 age group see's 115 players representing 22 states coming in to Casa Grande, AZ for a 3 day ID camp. The weather decided not to corporate, but that does stop the camp going ahead, where players will be chosen to represent the Rush Select traveling team. The 60 girls are represented by some top level teams including Delaware and Colorado that are both Regional Champions in their respective regions. The coaching staff will be looking to build two teams, one that will compete at the Presidents Day tournament and one that will compete at the Desert Classic, both back here in Phoenix in February.
The boys are looking to bring a couple of teams together to take a once in a life time trip to an event in Milan, Italy, where they will get to pit their skills against Serie A youth teams from Italy.
The rain has been falling hard and the first day the fields were too wet to play, and with more rain in the forecast things were not looking positive.
The staff managed to find a good size patch of grass where they were able to put on a monumental game of Soccer Tennis, so at least the players could get out and kick the ball about and stretch their legs after their flights earlier in the day. The evening scrimmages were replaced by classroom and an indoor sessions, and with the sun poking out in the morning, it looks like we will be able to get out on the fields for the rest of the weekend.
