Rush Soccer is a nationally recognized youth soccer organization, which began in Colorado and has expanded with 22 branches in 17 states. Rush Soccer is led by CEO, and U-20 Women’s National Team coach, Tim Schulz. We have embraced the Rush motto, “Where the trails of passion and purpose meet, begins the path to victory.” The Rush offers a comprehensive and progressive training program for the serious soccer athlete.
Northville Soccer Association has partnered with the Downriver Youth Soccer League, Central Michigan Soccer Association and the Capital Area United to become the Michigan Rush. The Downriver Youth Soccer League’s former Fusion and Starlights teams are now the Michigan Rush Downriver chapter of our club.
Our objective is to use the intellectual property and the consulting guidance from Rush soccer to offer our players the best soccer experience possible. Our elite players from both chapters of Michigan Rush will be brought together at the U13 to U18 age groups to play together for Michigan Rush teams. Players from the first and Nero teams in all age groups will play in their respective geographic areas.Our aim is to prepare players for the highest levels of the sport, from our ODP system to our national teams, college soccer, and professional soccer. We feel our staff and the Rush program will provide the necessary tools to give our players the best soccer experience in Michigan! For more information on the Rush Way, please visit Rush Soccer.
