Five Rush players and two coaches recently had the chance to attend New York Red Bulls RDS (Regional Development School) camp in New Jersey. Kelsie Bromwell (VA), Chloee Kooker (IA), Sarah Piper (TX), Noelle Walker (NY), and Chelsie Nichols (PA) joined PA Rush coaches Kristian and Nick (all pictured left to right) for the five day camp. The five players and coaches were invited to the camp by Rush Soccer partner New York Red Bulls.
Chloee Kooker of Iowa Rush took a moment to reflect on the camp from which she was also named Camper of the week!
"The Red Bull camp was a great opportunity to get to see other players, and make some new friends, in an area that I have not played soccer in before this camp. It was also nice to have other Rush girls at the camp since we are in the middle of a move from Iowa(where I have lived all of my life) to Dallas, Tx and didn't know anyone that was at the camp. Rush soccer really did well at the camp, the girls from Rush played a very good style of soccer and competed with the top players at the camp. I can see our way of training is making us good soccer players that can compete wherever we are in the U.S. Just in the past month I have played on a state champion team in Iowa, played with the girls in Dallas, TX, participated in the Red Bull RDS in New Jersey, and just finished Surf Cup in San Diego with the Rush National Team, where we competed very well with all of the great teams participating.(losing in a competitive 1-0 game to eventual tournament champions Santa Rosa) I am really lucky to get all of these opportunities and to be in a large soccer family. Go Rush!!" Chloee Kooker
