The Rush Select program is an international program in which Rush Soccer forms "all star teams" that are comprised of the top Rush players from all across the world.  The program starts from age U13 and is available through a players career with Rush Soccer ending at U19. 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 develop as a player in a way most across the country can not.  Players and coaches from Rush clubs around the country hardly know each other’s names at the beginning of each event but by the time everyone departs, life-long bonds will have been forged and a new level of play will have been discovered. Players return to their home Rush clubs with a new understanding of the Rush Way, the Rush Core Values, and an understanding of exactly what it means to be a part of the largest youth soccer organization in the world. The program's aim is to give the top players within Rush unique learning experiences that help them evolve as both a player and a person.

FAQs on the Rush Select Program

How can I make the Select team?

Players are scouted beginning at U12. The program takes recommendations from each club’s Technical Director to form the pool of players for each age group. The group evolves and players come in and out of Rush Select pools as the team ages up. Making the Rush Select team once does not mean a player will always be involved. Top players are rotated in and out the Rush Select regional and national pools regularly. 

What are the Rush Select Centers?

More information on the HUB, the Select Regional Centers is available here: Rush Select Centers. Clubs are divided up into 4 regions in the US, Northeast, Midwest, South and West. Each region will host an event where players can attend for the Select staff will evaluate them. This gives the coaches a much better picture of the players and ensures that we select the very best group. Typical locations for the Midwest Centers are metro-Chicago, IL or metro St. Louis, MO. The timing of the Regional Centers is typically the summer months.

Who is eligible to play for a Select Team?
