Rush Select prepares for Rush Fest
Last Updated on Tuesday, 17 July 2012 16:17
The B14 Select, coached by Dave Dengerink (TX) will not be traveling to the Fest this year as they just returned from a very successful trip to Alaska, where they won the Alaska Airlines Cup in the B16 bracket. The Girls will be looking to repeat the feat of a 100% record at last year’s Fest, playing a year up.
At the U13 level, Stuart Fitzsimons (TX Rush) will be taking a group of 25 players to the U14 Fest to test their skills a year up. The team will train as a group with Stuart and assistant Dan Highstead (PP Rush) as well as join in the Festival festivities. Andy Machin (WA Rush) will be traveling with a group of B13 Select the same week to play up at the B14 age group.
The Festival provides a unique opportunity for Select players across the country to actually get together and train as a team and give the coaches a chance to input their ideas and Rush philosophies to the players.
