Welcome to the new home of the Connecticut Rush. The Rush are a girls AAU Basketball club. The Rush are the sister organization of the CT Roughriders Boys AAU Basketball club. The club has been in existence since 2001 when a group of like minded parents from the Town of East Hartford decided to provide their sons and daughters with an opportunity to learn and grow in basketball. While we are based in East Hartford we take girls from all over the North Central region of Connecticut and this year will have girls from East Hartford, Manchester, Vernon, Ellington and Bolton. In the past the girls teams have been successful in the CT State tournament winning Gold and Silver medals and in 2009 our 6th grade team went 37-0 and won the USJN U11 tournament under the direction of Coach Kariene Rodney. Former players have gone on to be Varsity players in Manchester, East Hartford, Ellington, Glastonbury, Rockville and all of the Hartford High Schools and Magnet High Schools. Coaches bios are available on the handouts page. Feel free to email or call any of our coaches if you have any questions or would like to see  your daughter become a member of the Rush family. We look forward to hearing from you!
