Teams Coming Together

 

 


I have been a coach for the Greeley Bootleggers off and on since 1998. One of the most frustrating things for me as a coach is not being able to provide additional play or a higher level for the players who wanted to play more soccer than what was provided in a given season.  It has always been difficult to play in tournaments, especially out-of-state tournaments due to players not being able to be fully committed to soccer due to a variety of reasons.  Teams in Greeley have lost high-quality players in the past to other clubs, because of this. 

Now that we are part of the Rush Soccer program, I am excited that we were able to connect with the Pikes Peak Rush 2002 girls team to help each other out.  As I was unsuccessful with finding players in Greeley to play with us in the Pueblo Showcase, I reached out to Rick Smith, coach of the Pikes Peak Rush 2002 girls team.  As we were preparing to meet each other in the last game of the season to determine which team would be first place and second place, I let him know we entered the Pueblo Showcase and we’re down to having no subs.  In return, he responded that they wanted to go to Las Vegas in January and didn’t have enough players.  

The end result was we borrowed five of their players and won the Pueblo Showcase Tournament in the Gold Division.  In addition, Seven of our players will also be traveling with their team to play in the Las Vegas Cup in January.
  

So a big thanks to Norco Rush Director of Coaching Garry Guyan for connecting us to the Rush Club and we look forward to our new relationship with the Pike’s Peak Rush team.
