CHULA VISTA, Ca. -- USA Futures Field Hockey Region 11 recently selected 21 RUSH Elite Performance Group players to attend the 2015 National Futures Championship, according to their website. This is seven more RUSH EPG players selected than last year.

Additionally, a handful of athletes who participate in RUSH Training were also chosen for the highly coveted college recruiting tournament.

In June, the girls will compete within teams mixed of players selected from the ten other regions from around the country. Games will be played at the Spooky Nook in Lancaster, Pa.

The 21 RUSH EPG players selected represent roughly one third of the players chosen for the under-14, under-16 and under-19 Region 11 division rosters.

At the NFC the girls will be evaluated further for possible selections within the USA Field Hockey pipeline.

The Futures Region 11 selections are based on a weekend-long tryout with participants from throughout California and nearby states. Participants completed months of USA Field Hockey designed trainings at various state-wide sites to be eligible.
