ABOUT VIRGINIA RUSH’S ADVANCED PROGRAM
The Virginia Rush Advanced program offers age groups U9 through U20 (2008-1998 birth year) boys and girls. The Advanced program is offered to players who seek a level of play between recreational and competitive. Teams are formed through an open onsite player placement process to be held May 9th & 11th, 2016 at the Virginia Beach Sportsplex (2044 Landstown Centre Way, VA Beach, Va. 23456). Teams formed in June remain together for one year (fall and spring seasons). Players and teams can be added in the spring season.
The primary focus of the Advanced program is to offer age appropriate training. The Advanced program groups children according to the US Youth Soccer (USYS) age group structure. Players U9-U12, participate in “small-sided” games, which enables the players to have more active participation and time on the ball. Players U13-U19, participate in 11v11, which allows the older players to receive the most realistic view of the game. All players in the Advanced program that participate in training/practices will play at least 50% of each game.
