ABOUT VIRGINIA RUSH’S ADVANCED PROGRAM
04/04/18: VIRGINIA RUSH IS CURRENTLY MOVING TO A NEW ONLINE REGISTRATION PROVIDER. THE TRYOUT REGISTRATION LINK WILL BE POSTED HERE AND AVAILABLE WITHIN THE NEXT TWO WEEKS. CHECK BACK TO COMPLETE YOUR REGISTRATION TO ATTEND TRYOUTS/PLAYER PLACEMENTS. IN THE MEANTIME, THE UPDATED TRYOUT SCHEDULE IS LISTED BELOW.
The Virginia Rush Advanced program offers age groups U9 through U19 (2009-1999 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. 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.
