The Youth Academy program focuses on developing the soccer skills of players who have demonstrated a strong interest and enjoyment of the game. We draw many players from more recreational programs because they are looking for a more challenging soccer environment. Yet, for others, the pure joy of the game brings them to our program.

The purpose of the Rush Youth Academy program is to prepare players to be successful competitive players as they move through our program and graduate to the Senior Competitive program. The Youth Academy program focuses on the following key areas:

  • Fun trainings in a safe but challenging environment
  • Emphasis on fundamental technical, skill development
  • Challenging players cognitively in fast paced small sided games
  • Athletic movement, coordination, and balance exercises and activities
  • Rush core values, team building and importance of sportsmanship

The Youth Academy program is divided into age group categories:

  • U8 Boys and Girls
  • U9 Boys and Girls 
  • U10 Boys and Girls
U8 players (2012) that are interested in Academy and possess the skill/ambition may play up at U9 at the discretion of the coaching director.
