There may not be a game for the first team this weekend, but the same cannot be said for other Rapids teams in the coming days.
Take, for example, the Rapids Women. They face a trip to California to tackle three games in four days. Richard Fleming met up with them ahead of their road trip west.
You can hear details of how they prepared in this week’s Rapids Podcast, which is available via iTunes by subscribing using the button above.
The 10th episode also hears from former Rapids defender Ritchie Kotschau and looks ahead to the Reserves’ trip to Harrisburg.
