Minnesota Rush


Competitive Tournament Only


Competitive Tournament Only program gives families the choice when it comes to competitive soccer within our club. The Tournament Only program will continue be coached by Tetra Brazil coaches and overseen by Angelo Tartaglia and Humberto Paulo. 

Fall 2020  

Birth Year Guidelines 

Fall 2020 Birth Year Guideline
2007 - U14
2008 - U13
2009 - U12
2010 - U11

Compared to the Spring Season, the Fall season is much shorter, running from late August to mid October and includes three tournaments for the U9-U14. The number of teams formed and the age groups included are based on the level of interest within the club. With the growth of high school 9B (8th-grade teams) in Rochester, the 14U age group is not always an option for the club.
**Players that want training but are at an age group that cannot field a team are still welcome to participate and train with our coaches. 

Season Dates:
Starts: Monday August 26th and runs until the weekend of October 12th

Practice Location:
McQuillian Soccer Fields (Previously known as Kepp Fields) - 20th Street SE and Marion Road Intersection Near the Armory

Team Formation
Teams will be formed by MN Rush Assistant Technical Director (Angelo Tartaglia) and Tetra Brazil Player Development Director (Humberto Paulo). MN Rush's Competitive Tournament Only program does NOT use tryouts to form teams. Players aged U9 thru U14 are invited to register. 

All MN Rush Tournament Only teams are coached by professional coaching staff provided by our coaching provider TetraBrazil, and selected by our Assistant Director of Coaching. Some of the details of the MN Rush training program are as follows: Teams will be coached according to the Club's curriculum. During the Fall all teams practice twice a week, M/W or T/TH Fall practice sessions will run from 5:30 to 6:45 Training only options are available for players new to soccer, or those who wish not to participate in tournaments. Attendance is strongly encouraged, and absences may affect playing time. 

The MN Rush Competitive Tournament Only program is a training and tournament based program. Below are some details regarding this program. Tournaments are typically in the Twin Cities and held on the weekends. The new MN Rush uniform kit (details below) will be required to participate in tournaments.
