1) What does Rush mean to you? And what comes to your mind when you think Rush Soccer?

  • "To me, Rush soccer mean family. This is large club and it’s only getting bigger. Rush has many aspects that stand out to myself and others. The coaches have always been the best and the growth of the club is setting up the players at all ages to be elite players and play at the next level."

 

2) You're now a professional soccer player, what are the things you've learned playing for Rush that help you everyday?

  • "Now that I am a professional soccer player, something’s I learned from Rush was my passion for the game. I learned how to have a strong work ethic and come to trainings with a mindset to be the best. My coaches at Rush are some of the biggest influencers in my life. Rush made me believe in myself and helped me achieve all of my goals. The 11 core values were implemented in my brain throughout my years with Rush and I believe if you follow these core values then you are only bettering yourself as a person and player. I learned to respect my coach’s and teammates bettering myself for college and now at the professional level. Rush has given me many opportunities that I am beyond thankful for and I cannot thank everyone that has influenced my life and soccer career since I started at the club at age 12. My time at Rush was unforgettable and I recommend every player,  young and old to take advantage of the opportunities this club offers you."

  • "This spring season I wish each ND Rush team a successful and winning season. I hope every players comes to training ready to work hard and can take a positive aspect of the game home with them. I hope every player respects their coaches and teammates. And with that i hope each player is ready to compete on game days and can develop and win!"
