Rush Select

Rush Select 

The Rush Select program is an international program in which Rush Soccer forms Select teams (All-Star teams) that are comprised of the top Rush players from across all of our domestic and international branches in the U13-U19 age groups. These teams attend various events, both in the US and internationally on a yearly basis. The players get to see new ideas, play with top talent, learn from new coaches and make new friends. The programs aim is to get the top talent together and compete in tournaments to win and make the Rush brand even more of a formidable force. 

How can I make the Select team?

Players are scouted beginning at U13. The program takes recommendations from each club’s Technical Director to form the pool of players for each age group. The group is constantly evolving and players come and go as the team ages up. Making the Rush Select team once does not mean a player will always be involved and players can be added to the group at any time.

What are the Rush Select Centers?

The Rush Select Centers are for the U13 - U15 age groups. U13 will go to Rushfest and U14 - U15 will go to their regional Centers. U13-U15 will then be selected for a regional team which then leads into a national team. While, U16 and above will only be selected for a national team. 

Who is eligible to play for a Select Team?

Any Rush player between the ages of U13 and U18 is eligible to be selected.

Who coaches the Select teams?

Top Rush coaches from around the world make up our coaching staff. We currently have coaches from more than 20 clubs around the world on our staff.

What are the costs involved?

Costs vary depending on the event, but will usually be in the $400-$800 range. International trips will cost more due to airfare, but fundraising opportunities will be provided to help offset costs. There is also a limited budget for scholarships.
