Accountability Chart: Employee Incentives

Employee incentives data is collected once a year in order to issue a bonus to the participating employees.  The data is based on Rush Soccer's previous fiscal year that runs July 1st through June 30th each year.  Rush Soccer applies a formula, 50/25/25, to its annual budget, with 25% of the budget allocated to the employee incentive program.
The program is divided into four categories: 403B, Salary, Longevity, & Hierarchy.  In order to participate in this program, an employee must have been employed with Rush for one full fiscal year & the club must be up to date on its membership fees.  Contracted and part-time employees will be included in the Employee Incentive program at the discretion of that club’s Technical Director.  If the club has not hired full time employees due to club budget or health care coverage, but that employee’s only employer is their respective Rush Club, Rush Soccer recommends to include said employees in the incentive program.  If a contracted or part-time employee has other employers that are in the soccer community or that require more than 50% or their time, Rush Soccer recommends they are not part of the incentive program, but, will nevertheless take the recommendation of the Technical Director.  However, Rush Soccer would still like to collect information on those contracted/part-time employees that will not benefit from the Employee Incentive program, and it should be indicated that these employees should not receive any benefit from the plan.  The partner club will fill out a copy of the linked form.

Accountability Chart: Coaches Gear Forecast

Each year, SPI's uniform committee works with adidas to create the Rush Soccer coaches gear line for the following year.  There will be some mandatory items and some optional.  Coaches gear forecasts will be collected once a year.  The SPI program manager will provide each club with its order form and total dollar amount.  The promo coaches gear amount is based on a club's uniform forecasts/purchases.  If a club does not submit its forecast on time, the program manager has the ability to submit it on that club's behalf.

Accountability Chart: Uniform Forecast

Every other year, SPI's uniform committee works with adidas to create the uniform line for the upcoming cycle.  Uniform forecasts will be collected every other year on a two year buying cycle.  New clubs & mergers that occur mid-cycle will go into the inline (developmental) uniform kit.  Clubs must forecast within 15% of their purchases for the following cycle.  Clubs will receive the forecast document from the program manager.

There will be no uniform forecasting needed in 2017. This item will be tracked again in 2018.

Accountability Chart: Registration Fields

In order to better serve our membership, Rush Soccer will request player registration information in order to build specific distribution list for more efficient communications. The information will be collected and uploaded in to an online database for use to communicate with membership.  As approved by vote during the Rush Summit in 2015, all Rush member clubs will submit data to SPI from your current registration system platform. These files will be collected and used by Rush Soccer to provide essential club information for Rush members. All members will have the option to safely unsubscribe from these emails if they wish to do so.

 

Twice a year, each member club will download their membership's registration information into an Excel spreadsheet or CSV (Comma Separated Values). The member club will email two separate spreadsheets; one for competitive players, and the other for recreational players. These files will be collected and sent through the SPI preferred Communication Platform and not shared with any outside entities. Details can be found in this document Mass Communication usage:

 

There will be an email reminder request  with all the details on the following schedule:

Rush National Technical Directors

In order to support all of our clubs domestically, Rush Soccer has dedicated National Technical Directors (NTDs) assigned to clubs to act as their respective point of contacts for communication, advice and general support. They are advocates to help your Rush Club grow.

Domestically Rush Soccer has four NTDs that oversee approximately ten clubs each illustrated in the table below. The groups are somewhat based on geography allowing the NTD to work with clubs in regional programs and combinations of efforts. Ideally, these NTD’s are selected based on their experience within Rush and club development in general and their knowledge of the Rush Way. This knowledge and experience allows them to advise and give support on club development through both the Rush Club Levels program and individual communication. It is the responsibility of both the NTD and local clubs to insure that there are two way lines of communication. In addition, on a monthly basis, the NTDs will hold a conference call where each club must have a representative present.

Please click on the linked names below to see the four NTD’s and their backgrounds. Also, in the table below you will find the clubs that each NTD oversees.

Partnership Rebate Chart

Being part of Rush Soccer gives the opportunity to take advantage of some great partnerships that we have with National Sponsors. Rush Soccer negotiates the contracts on behalf of the domestic Rush Clubs to not only give great services and pricing but also the opportunity for rebates back to the club. Although the participation is not mandatory we highly encourage all clubs to take advantage of the programs with the understanding that in isolated situations the program is not the best fit for a club. Participation in these programs do become part of the Rush Club Levels Program as they progress. Below you will find the amount of money each club has received through the individual rebate programs during 2016 thus far. The table is updated quarterly to reflect the most current information. Please click on the tabs at the top of the chart to learn more about each program and see rebate tracking from the 2014 and 2015 calendar years. If you have any questions on the partnership programs please contact dstreufert@rushsoccer.com.
