Georgia Rush Hosts U13 Girls National Rush ID Camp
Georgia Soccer affiliate Georgia Rush played host to some of the top U13 girls talent that Rush Soccer has to offer this past January. From January 2-6, U13 girls players from all over the county, including Colorado, Michigan, Texas, and even Hawaii traveled to Georgia to show that they belonged amongst the elite players in the Rush Soccer program.
55 total players traveled to Atlanta just after the holidays and stayed with 55 of the local Georgia Rush families. Over the four days of the ID Camp, Georgia Rush Technical Director Russell Finch put the girls through intense training and simulated matches to identify the players he wanted on his Rush National Team roster. In addition to their training, the U13 Rush ID girls also played matches against Georgia Soccer’s 98 and 99 ODP teams. This Rush National team will be the group Finch will take to a number of prestigious international youth tournaments across the county, including the Del Sol Cup in Arizona, the Open Cup in Alabama, and Surf Cup in San Diego.
An underappreciated honor was the decision to have Georgia Rush host this ID Camp for the U13’s. Rush Soccer is the world’s largest youth soccer club, boating more than 40,000 players worldwide. Because of Rush Soccer’s decision to name Russell Finch as the head coach for the U13 girls team, Finch was able to bring the acclaimed ID Camp to Atlanta. With the ID Camp also came a nice boost to the local businesses in Milton, GA.
Georgia Soccer is proud to be a home to accomplished youth soccer clubs who are focused on player development, such as Georgia Rush.
