As a leader in the development of young hockey players, RUSH Hockey hosts the Atomic Challenge to help young, female hockey players experience a competitive environment with new peers. The tournament focuses on helping young players develop confidence on and off the ice, gain experience working with elite-level coaches and compete in a pure hockey setting. Additional components of the showcase include fitness testing (scheduled with RUSH team), educational seminars (topics and schedule to be posted) and time with college coaches, players and other experts.
