Five 2006 Boys Make Rush Select Team

Two weeks ago, 5 Rush Canada 2006 boys attended the Rush Select ID Camp in Casa Grande, Arizona.

Rush Select teams are comprised of top Rush players from across the country to attend various events on a yearly basis. Think of it as an all-star guest playing opportunity, but amplified. Learn more here or check out the Rush Select website. The ID Camp gives a chance for Rush Select coaches to evaluate players from Rush clubs in North America in preparation for naming teams that will play at the Presidents Day Tournament in Phoenix in February and in Italy in the spring of 2019. This event brings together the the top 60 international players from over 60 Rush Soccer Clubs and Academies for final evaluations and selection by Rush Coaching Directors.

We’re Proud to Announce:

After 3 days of evaluation, we’re proud to announce that Patrick Aponowicz, Alp Arikan, Sena Correia, Stefan Grandic, and Kenan Hodzic have been given a spot on the Rush Select team and will compete in tournaments in Phoenix and Italy this spring and will line up against teams like Juventus, AC Milan and Inter.

Rush Canada’s Technical Director Slobodan Pavlovic adds:

“We congratulate the Rush Canada boys for their great success and representation of our program at the top level of selection for their age group. Rush Canada has players in every older Rush Select team and having 5 boys in the youngest Rush Select team confirms the quality of our work. Photographed below are the Rush Canada players Patrick, Stefan, Sena, Kenan, Alp together with Denin and Ali from Rush Michigan (who also made the Rush Select team) and below mentioned evaluators. We are looking forward to seeing our boys playing versus top European academies during next year and starting to collect international experience at the highest level.”

Players & Rush Select Evaluators: Tiago Calvano (former Botafigo and Barcelona player) now Rush Director for Development of International Clubs, Davide Corti (former Milan player and one of Milan Academy Coaching Directors) now Rush Director for Players and Coaches Development, Raul Voss (former Duisburg and Eintraht player) now Rush National Director, Arian Hoxha Rush Havaii National Director and Slobodan Pavlovic (Rush Canada National Director).
