About Rush Soccer
Rush Soccer is the Largest Youth Soccer Club in the world with over 28 clubs in the United States and 22 clubs/partners internationally, adding up to a membership base of nearly 40,000 players worldwide. In order to broaden the scope of its proven coaching, player development and administrative methodologies to a national level, Rush Soccer was formed in 2002, under the leadership of the Colorado Rush Soccer Club, when the Rush brand expanded domestically with Virginia Rush and then internationally in July 2009 with Nkomazi Rush in South Africa. Since that time, Rush Soccer has spread to over five continents with international partners in Africa, North/Central America, South America, Australia/New Zealand, and most recently in Asia with Tajikistan. By affiliating with qualified soccer clubs throughout the United States, Rush Soccer uses personnel, technical and intellectual property exchanges to create efficiencies through economies of scale, promote player, coach and tournament exchanges, develop proprietary information technology applications, provide administrative and technical consulting, streamline branding opportunities and maximize potential for fundraising and sponsorship support.
Rush Soccer's primary objective is to develop a national level club cooperative system that offers substantial opportunities for national corporate sponsorship and foundation support, provides the framework for a national coach and player development network, and will serve a significant centralized pool of talent for consideration by European, MLS, NCAA, US National and Olympic soccer programs.
