Cover-graphics-webstory


The international
Rush Soccer Select Program’s event called the HUB is here! With a new format and timing, the 2020 Rush Select Hub is this year’s only opportunity for Rush’s most elite players to experience a competition that has produced current professional alumni like Lindsey Horan (USWNT, Portland Thorns, Colorado Rush), Cole Bassett (USMNT U20, Colorado Rapids, Colorado Rush), Shandon Hopeau (Seattle Sounders, Hawai’i Rush), and Paolo Del Piccolo (Louisville City FC, Colorado Rush).


For the first time ever, Rush Soccer’s elite Select Program is hosting the innovative multi-region soccer showcase. The four-day event in St. Louis will host most elite 2006, 2007 and 2008 boys and girls players across Rush Soccer, representing the Northeast, South, Midwest and West regions from November 19-22. 


The official Rush Select Hub regional team rosters will be announced throughout this week, starting on Tuesday with the 2008 boys and girls. The 2007 boys and girls regional teams will be unveiled on Wednesday. And the 2006 boys and girls regional teams will be announced on Thursday ahead of all the action kicking off next week. 


“This year, with all it’s challenges, led us to combine our annual Regional Select Centers into one innovative event in the Rush Select Hub,” said Rush Soccer’s Select Program Director, Justin Miller. “These All-Star Teams, if you will, are made up of each Rush club and region’s most outstanding boys and girls as they experience new teammates, coaches and competition as well as the opportunity to be identified for the Rush Select National Team. More than 430 Rush players will be involved in this first-ever Rush Select Hub and we could not be more excited.”


Each region will play each other, classified by age and gender, and the top two regions will face off on Championship Sunday. Coaches and players will not only develop and compete, but will take part in the Rush Way featuring the fundamental Rush Core Values with an understanding of exactly what it means to be a part of the largest youth soccer organization in the world. 


Three clubs — Colorado Rush, Virginia Rush and Pikes Peak Rush — formed the first Select Team in 2004. The Rush 1986/87 Boys Under-17 team eventually won the U.S. Club Soccer National Tournament and after winning their Regional Tournament. In the subsequent 16 years Rush Soccer has cemented a reputation for developing elite youth players through a distinct pathway to the heights of competition with more than 100 partner clubs and a nationwide membership of more than 45,000 players. Rush Soccer is represented by a member club in almost every state and more than 40 International including in Africa, North and South America, Asia and Europe.
