Rush Select: PDT Recap

The Rush Select Program wrapped up its most successful Presidents’ Day Tournament (PDT) in its 10-year history when five teams won championships on Monday.

The 2018 edition of PDT featured 22 Rush Select teams, the first time the program has brought that many teams to an event.

The weekend started off with an iSoccerPath college panel for the 2000 - 2003 players, part of the College Program component that Rush Select added this year to further help players in the program.

Dave Kern and Andy Vanover from Rush Soccer’s first team, Penn FC, came out to Phoenix for the weekend. Vanover, who is Penn FC’s Director of Club Relations and Rush Soccer’s College Advisory Program (CAP) Director, assisted the 2001 Girls teams in the tournament.

In addition, the six Rush Soccer Mentor Program candidates served as assistant coaches for Rush Select age groups at PDT.

“It was great to see synergy with so many other aspects of the Rush Soccer experience - our first team, Penn FC, CAP, and the Mentor Program - come together with Rush Select to continue pushing the envelope in terms of the experience these players have with our program,” said Rush Select Operations Director Lauren Meehan.

Fifteen teams walked away from PDT finishing in the top three, with five third-place finishers, five runners-up, and five champions.

Overall, the program had a 57 - 18 - 14 (W - L - D) record, scoring 213 goals, and averaging 2.39 goals per game.

Championship winning teams were:
2000 Boys Rush Select Blue
2001 Boys Rush Select Blue
2002 Boys Rush Select Blue
2003 Girls Rush Select White
2005 Girls Rush Select White

“I cannot say enough about the efforts our players and coaches put forth this weekend,” said Rush Select Director Brian Lux said. “It is so cool to see these players on the first night, maybe a little tentative playing with new faces, and then again by the last games of the weekend, when they are playing as a real Rush family.”

Lux concluded, “Rush is a one of a kind club and the Rush Select Program really has no equal. Fantastic weekend.”
