Michigan Rush Lansing

News Detail


Apr, 2019



The Rush Select program is moving into a Regional format at the U13, U14, and U15 age groups (national teams at this age group will still be formed from the regional teams CLICK HERE FOR FULL EVENT BREAKDOWN). With this new format change, Rush Soccer is creating “Regional Centers" in the upcoming months for the ‘06 - ‘05 (U14 -U15) birth years. These Centers will be located in Denver, Orlando, Chicago, and near Boston. For the regional events at the older age groups, players can come as individuals or with their Rush team to these Centers and play in competitive friendly matches against other Rush Clubs in their region. Teams will get to enjoy a competitive environment while learning more about the Rush Way at the event (see below for a full identification process by age group).

At each Regional Center, the best players will be identified for Rush Select and then invited to be a part of our regional teams to compete at high level tournaments. National teams will still be formed to compete in competitions at certain age groups, but these Regional Centers will allow regional teams to form across the country, allowing the program to be more accessible while simultaneously giving more players the opportunity to be challenged in a Rush Select environment.

Justin Miller, the new Rush Select Director, expresses enthusiasm for the ‘Rush Select Reloaded’ structure:

“We are excited for the program to take on a regional format. Our National Technical Directors (NTDs) Mark Zathey (Michigan Rush Technical Director and NTD), Arian Hoxha (Hawaii Rush Technical Director and NTD), Justin Sells (New Mexico Rush Technical Director and NTD), and Matt Mittelstaedt (Virginia Rush Technical Director and NTD) will take on a bigger role, and more players and coaches will have the opportunity to be in the program.

The program has grown so much over the years and we felt we were ready to push for a regional format while still being competitive. With our size, it makes the most sense.

The Regional Centers are more than just an identification process; it's a place where Rush Soccer staff can assist in player and coach development for all that attend. The players that perform well at the Centers will be invited to be a part of Rush Select at the national level. The Centers are about so much more than just selecting the national Rush Select players for that year, though; they will offer a lot of development and give a lot of attention to all coaches and players that attend.”
