About Our Coaching Staff
The Rush takes great pride in the coaches that work for us, both part time and full time. In fact they are the cornerstone, the backbone of who and what we are.
Developing soccer players is the primary objective for our coaches, but what cannot be underestimated is the importance of coaches shaping lives. Gone are the days when coaching responsibilities consist of working with X's and O's. Today, coaches must be technically proficient and tactically sound of course. But coaches must also have an understanding of how to teach players to take care of their bodies. Running sprints is no longer the only method of maintaining fitness. Today's athlete must understand the importance of endurance for sure, but strength, coordination, nutrition, are all facets of physical conditioning. Understanding the psyche of youth players and managing those players is also a key component in coaching. Today's coaches must be able to motivate and build self-esteem in their players. All this simply means we need quality, well-rounded men and women to lead our youth to success both on and off the field. Coaches are now teachers, motivators, psychologist, mentors and more.
Our coaches continually strive to develop players on and off the pitch. It is a great privilege to coach in the Rush, the best soccer organization in America. And with great privilege comes great responsibility. We are proud to boast of the great many hard working coaches we have who embrace this privilege and thrive with this responsibility.
