The key objective of our partnership with Rush Soccer USA is to give players from Football IQ Academy the opportunity to travel to the United States to train and compete against other Rush teams, attend international tours, participate in College and Select ID camps which would assist with their overall development.
Over the past several years, Rush has facilitated successful exchanges for players from the Caribbean, Brazil, Gambia, Iraq, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Rush Fest | July |
The Rush Fest is an annual event that brings together U12 boys and girls' teams from Rush clubs all over the world. Teams compete against one another in a friendly tournament while also joining up to participate in training sessions on the field as well as classroom and social events off the field.
Top coaches from within the Rush family comprise the staff that work with the players and team coaches throughout the event. Each team will have a dedicated staff coach to learn from over the course of the Fest
Rush Soccer forms select teams (All-Star teams) that are comprised of the top Rush players from across Rush U13-U17 age groups. These teams attend various events, both domestic and international, on a yearly basis.
Player pools are established through club recommendations and identification at the Rush Festival and the Select ID Camps. Players can move in and out of the player pool based on their current form. Select Team coaches have the final say in which players make the roster for any particular event.
The Rush Soccer Club is proud to provide a number of programs outside the normal realm of training, competition, and soccer related activities.; One of those programs is the College Advisory Program or C.A.P. This program is run by C.A.P. Director Michael Gabb and is provided to our boys and girls teams U15 to U19.
Throughout the years, Rush has set up several successful community outreaches through the REACH Program. While visiting disadvantaged countries, it was evident that not only is there a deficiency of many basic needs but more importantly, a strong desire to provide increased opportunities for their young, talented players.
Several of these communities have since become official Rush partners and are committed to exposing the Rush brand. Through player exchange programs with American based Rush clubs, International players are granted the opportunity to play in the United States while attending school and playing in the top leagues.
