Michigan Rush Lansing Programming 2019 - 2020

Michigan Rush Lansing exists to provide Capital Area youth soccer players with an environment in which they can thrive. We will do this through the provision of a supportive but challenging environment that progressively develops soccer skills and solid character traits. We define a player as not just an athlete who wins medals, but as someone who possesses solid character traits, these traits are defined within our Rush Core Values. This is the Rush Way!

The only nonprofit competitive soccer club in Lansing, Michigan Rush Lansing offers the following opportunities:

Player- Centered Approach to Development:

A proven and purposeful approach to developing characteristics and soccer skills in young players.

A Periodized Player Development Program:

An annual curriculum that addresses periodized seasonal training periods, weekly training sessions, rest periods, tournaments and camps.

Complete Player Development Pathway:

From local Lansing teams to State, Regional, and Rush National Teams. Rush Lansing is the only local club that has the ability to offer players a complete player pathway from Jr. Academy developmental teams, all the way to our Men’s and Women’s professional teams.

Our 11 Month Soccer Methodology (Birth years 2006 and below, High School age groups play 7 months):

Team Training Sessions: Twice per week fall and spring and up to two weekly sessions in winter, depending on age group.

Club Training Night: Up to six sessions spring and fall. Club Training helps to improve the technical level of our soccer players through a purposeful and systematic training program and fosters a club atmosphere that develops a common purpose, language, and vision.

Functional/Position Specific Training: Aimed at our older players - training that is specific to a role or position. The player will determine which skill is necessary to solve the demands of the game as dictated by the game.

Fall and Spring League and Tournament play:

Rush Lansing has teams placed in multiple leagues based on what is the appropriate level of competition for that age group. Our club has teams participate in local WSSL leagues all the way to US. Youth Soccer National Leagues.

Quality Indoor Facilities:

Our winter home is the Summit Sports and Ice Complex. Rush Lansing players have almost double the amount of indoor training time available, more than any club in Lansing. Rush consistently has teams make the State Cup Knock-out Rounds, Quarter-finals, or a Semi-final appearances. Winter training plays a huge role in seasonal results! When you hear a club speak of "required downtime" It is because they likely have no place to train in the winter.

Always get, in writing, what is specifically included in your fees. All club teams are not created equal.

Developmental Age Group  Winter Indoor Games:

Included in fees are 7-10 winter indoor games played locally. Games are designed to put into practice skills and tactics taught during indoor training. Birth year 2008 below participate.

Every season we believe in being upfront about the fees you can expect to pay as a member of our club, in fact, we believe in it so strongly it is right here for you to review. Our annual fee guide is our best assessment of the fees charged to families and, more importantly, what is included and what is not included in your club fee. 

As an organization, we believe you should not have to dig to find this information and you should not have to accept vague answers to questions such as, "how many tournaments are included?", or "what winter training is included, where is winter training located and how many sessions does that include?" If you have questions please ask. Feel free to email us at any time - [email protected]

Michigan Rush Lansing Fee Structure:

It is important that every player and parent understand that being a part of the Michigan Rush means more commitment than you may have experienced in other soccer programs. Our training diet, depending upon the birth year of your player, involves training up to three days per week spring and fall and up to twice a week in the winter, as well as attending games and tournaments throughout the year, with some travel and associated expenses

The financial commitment is just as important as the time commitment. If you feel this is not something you are prepared to handle, please let the coach know as soon as possible.

 ALL FEES ARE TO BE PAID ONLINE. Checks will not be accepted. No refunds will be issued for club fees paid.
