Rush roots run deeper than just soccer

Behind everything North Denver Rush Soccer does, there is a vision. A vision of a better future, and what better way to pass on values and kindness into our world than through our youth.With every practice, every private lesson, every game, or even every team function, there is always a core value lesson ready to be learned. One day respect may be taught in the form of picking up after yourself at a friend's house, while the other day respect could mean shaking your opponents hand after a tough loss. These values never stop running their course and can be seen in the least thought about moment, but make for those moments that will absolutely take your breathe away. Like winning a championship game of course, or even more so, helping an opponent off the ground after a one-on-one collision.  

Rush has 11 core values, well because, there's 11 players on a soccer field. 

1. Accountability:  Be accountable for your actions and hold others accountable for their actions.  Who am I ultimately accountable to, and who judges my work?

2. Advice:  Seek out advice and aspire to be the best.  In order to learn, we must be open to learning and consider the advice of others.  Are you coachable?

3. Empathy:  Empathy is at the core of solid relationships.

4. Enjoyment:  Enjoy your work, this is a gift.  The desires of diligent workers are satisfied.

5. Humility: Apologize when you make a mistake.  Forgive others and do not look back.

6. Leadership: Leaders strive to be trustworthy, honest and sincere. They possess traits such as integrity and honor.  They are willing to serve others and sacrifice their own interests.  Leaders are constructive and hardworking.

7. Passion:  Passion always trusts, always hopes and always perseveres.  Passion never fails.

8. Respect:  Respect everyone.  Respect the opponent, the rules, your colleagues, your superiors and subordinates.  Be thoughtful and considerate.

9. Safety: Our environment is safe.  This includes the office, our travels, the fields and our bodies.  Safety is not only physical safety from harm, but safety from ridicule and attack.   We are comforted and encouraged in the club.  We portray self-control and kindness to our staff, our colleagues and players.

Tenacity:  To be successful, persevere…. persevere but do not be anxious. Fear no one.  Be strong and courageous.  Work when no one is looking, even when the circumstances are not right and everyone else quits.  Diligence never loses because it never quits.  Outwork your opponent, and most importantly, work smart.  Don’t wait for external inspiration.   The people who go far do so because they motivate themselves and give life their best, regardless of how they feel.

11. Unity:  Together all things are possible.  When your teammates are down, bear each other’s burdens; conversely, celebrate your teammate’s successes.

North Denver Rush is more than a soccer club. It is a home, a learning place, a safe place, a place to be yourself! With our vision and through our 11 Rush core values, we are committed to spreading footprints of warmth and kindness onto future generations, in hopes for a better future for all.
