Southern Lakes Rush’s competitive program offers a more challenging and competitive playing environment than is typically provided by local recreational leagues.  The primary goal for our competitive team program is to help each player reach his or her maximum potential with regards to soccer, as well as to give our players the best possible resources to develop successful teams.  

Competitive teams are formed in the summer of each year through open tryouts and evaluations. Players are accepted to their team for a one – year (12-month) commitment beginning July 1 to June 30th the following year.  Teams practice 2-3 times per week during the fall and spring seasons as well as optional off-season training opportunities.

The Competitive program requires travel to local, regional and/or out-of-state tournaments. Individual teams compete at various levels depending upon the competitive needs of the players involved.

If you have any questions about the Competitive Program or would like additional information please contact us at

Player Development Standards and Curriculum


Rush believes fostering a structured, developmental environment requires common standards and benchmarks that can be followed by trainers and understood by players and parents. Rush standards focus on developing smart, complete soccer players, while preparing boys and girls to play soccer at the next level.

Rush focuses on four key areas in player development:

Skill Areas:

  • Technical – The ability to execute individual skills critical to game play. As players mature and settle into positions, skill emphasis may differ by position. For example: a central midfield player will need different techniques and expertise as compared to an outside back.
  • Tactical – Rush aims to create clever players, capable of adapting to the constantly changing circumstances of the game. Tactical skills are when a player takes action or makes a decision to gain an advantage on the field.
  • Physical – Strong and resilient players will provide a significant advantage to the team. A tired player will struggle to think properly and is prone to commit more errors.
  • Psychosocial – A human being is often affected by his/her emotions. Players will learn to use these emotions to their advantage and turn them into strengths.
