Rush Little Strikers Overview (U03–U06)

Our Rush Little Strikers Clinics are designed to develop soccer players aged 3 to 8 through fun and engaging soccer games; developing skills, athleticism and the fundamentals of teamwork. Our goal is to improve all players and prepare those who would look to transition into the Rush Juniors program. 

Rush Juniors Overview (U07–U08)

After graduating from our Rush Strikers at age 6, players will graduate into our Juniors program. This program will take our young athletes to the next level in soccer and athletic development.

Our teams compete in a variety of local, regional, and national leagues including NCSL, SAM/SAM Select, EDP, EDP NL, etc. Each team also competes in MSYSA & EDP sanctioned tournaments.

Rush Academy (U09–U11)

The U09-U11 age group is extremely important to the development of youth soccer players and it is vital to create an appropriate developmental environment without making the environment too competitive or restrictive, resulting in players leaving the sport.

The Rush Select Program is a comprehensive approach to developing players and teams. We have a progressive, tangible Player Development Philosophy that is ball focused, player centered and age appropriate. The Rush Select division is for the player who is ready to take their development in this sport to the next level. 

Rush Core Values

Accountability: Be accountable for your actions and hold others accountable for their actions. Who am I ultimately accountable to, and who judges my work?

Advice: Seek out advice and aspire to be the best. In order to learn, we must be open to learning and consider the advice of others. Are you coachable?

Empathy: Empathy is at the core of solid relationships.

Enjoyment: Enjoy your work, this is a gift. The desires of diligent workers are satisfied.

Humility: Apologize when you make a mistake. Forgive others and do not look back.

Leadership: Leaders strive to be trustworthy, honest and sincere. They possess traits such as integrity and honor. They are willing to serve others and sacrifice their own interests. Leaders are constructive and hardworking. 

Passion: Passion always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres. Passion never fails. 

Respect: Respect everyone. Respect the opponent, the rules, your colleagues, your superiors and subordinates. Be thoughtful and considerate.

Safety: Our environment is safe. This includes the office, our travels, the fields and our bodies. Safety is not only physical safety from harm, but safety from ridicule and attack. We are comforted and encouraged in the club. We portray self-control and kindness to our staff, our colleagues and players.

Tenacity: To be successful, persevere…. persevere but do not be anxious. Fear no one. Be strong and courageous. Work when no one is looking, even when the circumstances are not right and everyone else quits. Diligence never loses because it never quits. Outwork your opponent, and most importantly, work smart. Don’t wait for external inspiration. The people who go far do so because they motivate themselves and give life their best, regardless of how they feel. 

Unity: Together all things are possible. When your teammates are down, bear each other’s burdens; conversely, celebrate your teammate’s successes.
