Rush Wisconsin Southest Player Development Standards and Curriculum

Rush believes fostering a structured, developmental environment requires common standards and benchmarks that can be followed by trainers and understood by players and parents. Rush standards focus on developing smart, complete soccer players, while preparing boys and girls to play soccer at the next level.

Rush focuses on four key areas in player development:

  • Technical - The ability to execute individual skills critical to game play. As players mature and settle into positions, skill emphasis may differ by position. For example: a central midfield player will need different techniques and expertise as compared to an outside back.
  • Tactical - Rush aims to create clever players, capable of adapting to the constantly changing circumstances of the game. Tactical skills are when a player takes action or makes a decision to gain an advantage on the field.
  • Physical - Strong and resilient players will provide a significant advantage to the team. A tired player will struggle to think properly and is prone to commit more errors.
  • Psychosocial - A human being is often affected by his/her emotions. Players will learn to use these emotions to their advantage and turn them into strengths.

The document below outlines the areas of emphasis within the above four categories by age group.
