"They're looking forward to playing with other kids," George Davis says.

The River Rippers -- who include players from throughout the Selinsgrove area and one player from Lewisburg -- have had a successful year. They won their age group in the "Harvest Classic" near Gettysburg back in the fall.

"The girls are amazing," Amy Davis says. "They're encouraging each other, and there's constructive criticism."

Considering the time they're going to be spending together over the next few weeks, that communication could be important.

"We do a lot of team-building activity," George Davis says. "It's not just about soccer; it's about getting the girls to work together. They're going to live in a house together for a week."

River Rippers: Evette Davis, Alivia Ravy, Kaitlin Shaffer, Aleah Longacre, Bailey Slotter, Raine Fultz, Erin Mullen, Sydney Shatzer, Anna Gephart, Grace Long and Sofia Waughen.
