Minnesota Rush Soccer Club



General Information

The Rush Select Program is the club's highest level for U15 and older. The Club has rebranded our year round programs to fall in line with Rush and their select programs. The Academy and Elite programs will now be called Rush Select with emphasis on the building steps to the college ranks as well as Rush regional and national select teams.

Highlights of the program will be as follows:
- Free College Fit Finder account
- Training twice per week throughout the season starting in December at the RCTC Dome
- League games (games can be scheduled at any time), tournaments and showcases. This will be a hybrid model.
- Physical training with Exos at Mayo Clinic once a week
- A College advisory program and access to our director.

We ask that players who are fully committed to playing soccer try out for the program. The expectation is that players will try and attend all training and games throughout the course of the season. If a player is a multi-sport athlete, we ask that they work their conflicts out with the coach. Generally, practices are held after HS sport practices, and games can be rescheduled to any day of the week.  

We (Neil and Angelo) are excited to be offering this revamped program as we strive to offer the most competitive soccer in our region. If you have additional questions, please reach out to us:

Due to the unknowns of COVID and what we will be able to accomplish in the 2021 season, we will have everyone do a general registration with the cost being $50. 

**When registering please choose the payment plan- this will only charge the $50 at this time.  If you do not choose the payment plan you will be required to pay the full amount.

Anyone wanting to be considered for a SELECT Team needs to click the button during registration. SELECT teams will be determined though the general tryouts. There are no special tryouts for SELECT. Once tryouts have concluded the staff will reach out to the players for the Select teams and offer the spot.
