Gateway Rush Soccer Club

Youth Development Academy



 Youth Development Academy

The Gateway Rush Youth Development Academy program (YDA) caters to boys and girls with birth years 2016-2014.  The YDA program focuses on early youth soccer development.  It introduces the game to these young players in a fun and dynamic fashion through the use of age-appropriate skill activities and small-sided games, where "learning" the game is just as important and exciting as "playing" the game.

Gateway Rush’s YDA program is specifically designed for young athletes ages 5-8 years old.  Our club's Directors have developed a curriculum and training method that is in line with the US Soccer Federation player development initiatives.  Each YDA season lasts approximately 5-6 weeks long.

The Youth Development Academy is led by Gateway Rush Director of Soccer Operations, and USSF National "B" Licensed coach, Larry Julius, and the Gateway Rush professional staff. 

All players are expected to bring a soccer ball, shin guards, and their favorite drink to all sessions.
