Next week, 17 players from 5 different age groups within our academy are travelling to Arizona to compete in the prestigious Presidents Day Tournament. Last year, hundreds of Rush players throughout North America travelled to Arizona to tryout for a spot on the Rush Select Team for their age groups and 17 players from Rush Canada Academy were identified and selected to play on the team.
These players will compete in two major events this year. The first event will be the PDT Tournament in Arizona which will be used a preparatory event for the upcoming events in Europe and South America. Check out some of the upcoming events below.

This event is one of the top tournaments in North America and will be used to prepare the Rush Select teams for their Spring and Summer Trips to Europe where they will showcase their talents to some of the top professional academies on the continent.
