The Rush Fest is an annual event that brings together U12 boys and girls' teams from Rush clubs across the country. Teams compete against one another in a friendly tournament while also joining up to participate in training sessions on the field as well as classroom and social events off the field. Top coaches from within the Rush family comprise the staff that work with the players and team coaches throughout the event. Each team will have a dedicated staff coach to learn from over the course of the Fest.
REACH (Rush Equipment Assisting Children)
Established in 2002, Rush Equipment Assisting Children is an amazing program that allows every Rush player to make a difference. By collecting used soccer equipment and uniforms from Rush players the REACH program redistributes them to underprivledged children around the nation and the globe.
Rush Soccer forms select teams (All-Star teams) that are comprised of the top Rush players from across the country at the U13-U17 age groups. These teams attend various events, both domestic and international, on a yearly basis. Player pools are established through club recommendations and identification at the Rush Festival and the Select ID Camps. Players can move in and out of the player pool based on their current form. Select Team coaches have the final say in which players make the roster for any particular event.
The Rush Soccer Club is proud to provide a number of programs outside the normal realm of training, competition, and soccer related activities. One of those programs is the College Advisory Program or C.A.P. This program is run by the National Rush C.A.P. Director and is provided to our boys and girls teams U15 to U19.

More than just a recognition of soccer achievements, the I Am Rush Program recognizes the entire individual. Do you know an exceptional individual playing for the Rush? Nominate them to "I Am Rush" so Rush Soccer can recognize the individuals who most embody the Rush Core Values as players and as people.
International Player Program
Throughout the years, Rush has set up several successful community outreaches through the REACH Program. While visiting disadvantaged countries, it was evident that not only is there a deficiency of many basic needs but more importantly, a strong desire to provide increased opportunities for their young, talented players. Several of these communities have since become official Rush partners and are committed to exposing the Rush brand. Through player exchange programs with American based Rush clubs, International players are granted the opportunity to play in the United States while attending school and playing in the top leagues.
The Rush Summit is a three day conference for Rush Technical Directors, administrators and other staff members. Topics change from year to year but address current issues that Rush Clubs are facing with suggestions how to address and improve all aspects of each organization. The Rush Summit is held in conjunction with the Rush Fest each summer.
The All Rush Team is a program that recognizes the top senior players from all the Rush clubs around the world, for both on field soccer skills and representation of the Rush Core Values off the field. The recognition award is sponsored by Soccer.com and has the backing of two of Rush Soccer’s all time Elite players: Todd Dunivant, MLS Cup Champion, and LA Galaxy standout Lindsey Horan, former All Rush recipient, Paris St. Germain player, and US Women’s National Team midfielder.
Recipients will be recognized on the Rush Website and receive a letter and $50 Soccer.com gift certificate in the mail via their club. We will continue to build Alumni of our Elite players as they progress through their soccer careers, with the hopes that many can emulate and maybe surpass the feats of some of the Rush Alumni greats such as Todd Dunivant, Conor Casey, Bobby Burling, and Jordan Angeli, along with some of the upcoming young pros such as Danielle Foxhoven and Lindsey Horan.
