Player Loan Program
Rush Soccer facilitates a guest playing system that is quite popular. If a player is looking to guest play, or a coach needs to fill a spot on a roster, we have the ability to place players through our network. Whether you are a high school age player looking to play in showcases and get recruited in specific areas of the country, or a younger age player looking to experience the Rush Way in different regions, the Player Loan Program can help! This program is exceptionally unique to Rush Soccer and provides more opportunities for growth and brings Rush Clubs and players together.

Rush Summit: July 7th - 10th, 2022
The Rush Summit is an annual conference where all coaches from the Rush Soccer organization meet to share the Rush Way Philosophy. This three-day event is held in conjunction with Rush Fest in Colorado and attracts soccer leadership from around the world. This past year we hosted workshops and presentations by former professional player and MLS coach Steve Nicol (Liverpool and Scotland International), Jerome de Bontin (GM of the New York Red Bulls), Laurent Papillon (heavily involved with UEFA and French Football Federation), as well as a youth coach from Real Madrid.
Trace utilizes a specialty camera system in conjunction with AI to capture match-day footage. Trace then generates a tactical playlist specific to each player that is available to them moments after the game. With Trace, coaching, player development, and recruiting are hassle-free and effortless. Rush Soccer recognizes the importance of game footage and has built a national partnership to get preferred pricing on this cutting-edge technology.
Rush Soccer connects top-level players whose local clubs don’t offer an MLS Next Program to those who do. Through an online request form, certified by the player’s Technical Director, players can connect with MLS Next clubs to gain playing experience in the top youth league in the United States, whilst still being able to play with their local club team.
Under the direction of the SPI Tournament Director, Rush Soccer has implemented a program to assist local clubs with marketing, administration, and income possibilities for their tournaments. Marketing on the Rush Soccer Tournament Website, using the economies of scales of all the Rush Soccer events to encourage more sponsorship to be filtered down to the local level as well as exclusive tournament packet assistance to help with the efficiency of the event are all part of the services provided.

Through our partnership, our lawyer bills through an incredibly reduced rate as he is passionate about seeing the growth of soccer within the US. If your club may ever find itself in a situation that requires legal assistance, we are here to help.
