Awesome August and CrushFest, the Crush PreSeason event for all active Crush Fall soccer teams was a huge success this year! Hundreds of Crush players came together to support and enjoy their fellow leaders and peers.
Teams spent four days with their coaches and each Crush hosted a different showcase session with our friends at PTI. Players and parents were encouraged to watch the sessions to learn and be inspired. This was a great way to bring the club together for 45 minutes each day. Tuesday, Coach Rex hosted the showcase session focusing on playing out of the back, a very important focus in today's style of soccer. Wednesday DOC Fabio used his 03 Boys to showcase his topic, but the winner of the week was Associate DOC and our newest member of Crush, Josh Van Pelt. Josh won over the crowd using mini soccer hacky sacks to encourage the players watching to answer his coaching points.
Awesome August concluded with the annual Crush Fest Club Tournament. Crush teams played each other in a friendly-style tournament, boys and girls competed against each other and each team had the chance to showcase their stuff for the first time this season. To break up the day, Crush coaches played the 98 Boys Team, they made the coaches work, but the winning streak continues for these Crush coaches!
It was a fantastic end to what's only the beginning of a brand new season for Crush with many more exciting things to come.
Thank you to all those who helped and supported Crush throughout this week.
