Become a Rush Club
Join the Largest Youth Soccer Club in the World
Why partner with Rush Soccer?
First and foremost: our philosophy and core values. We as community leaders live by our core values, both on and off the field. More than words, they are our mantra: respect, passion, safety, leadership, tenacity, humility, advice, unity, accountability, empathy, and enjoyment. We continually conduct ourselves in a way that aligns with these values, and we encourage our players and parents to do the same. We lead by example and this is contagious. “The Rush Way” encompasses these values and is something players and coaches alike are proud to represent.
Our players see improvement. We focus heavily on coaching education, which equates to better player development. We offer a plethora of resources for coaches to learn from, including articles, manuals, social interaction, ROLL (coming soon), international trips, seminars, and the members area of our website. Our yearly Summit, Festival and Select trips offer coaches the chance to learn from one another and hone their skills to the Rush Way of coaching. Again, players see results because of this advanced level of instruction. Three clubs were invited to both ECNL and Academy since becoming a part of Rush Soccer.
Our partnerships: We negotiate on behalf of over 35 thousand members to receive the best benefits with industry leading companies like adidas, Soccer.com, NY Red Bulls, and now Chevrolet. Clubs would not receive these benefits without our negotiating power. Sure, any club can put on an adidas uniform and order it from Soccer.com, but without being a part of Rush Soccer they do not receive our price points or level of service.
Our programs: Select, Festival, guest playing, international program, REACH, Cap, Thunder, ROLL… Not all of our programs are available to every age, every player, or every club, but it is something we are working on and we want all programs to be offered to each club, as they are solid and proven to be highly beneficial.
Our massive numbers: None of what we offer would be as valuable as it is without the fact that we are the largest youth soccer club in the world. Companies want to do business with us because we have volume. We make headlines and attract the attention of recruiters because we have so much going on nationwide. Players feel honored and special when their recognition spans 27+ states and 19+ countries. It really does wonders for their sense of worth and accomplishment, and let's face it - every player deserves to be in the spotlight at some point!
Lastly, our love for what we do: Rush Soccer is a family. Our coaches, staff, players and parents all love the beautiful game. As a family we are united and we love what we belong to, our purpose and progress and results are all important and defined. Our premise has always been to develop quality youth from the ground up with soccer as our conduit. We live for the game.
There is a reason Rush Soccer keeps expanding – people are taking notice of the great things we are doing, and they want to be a part of what will someday be the best soccer club in the world. No matter how long it takes, that is our ultimate goal!
Below you will find a listing and explanations of why so many clubs have made the decision to become part of the Rush Soccer family.
