Rush staff from several branches across Colorado enjoyed a morning of coaching at the Latino Chamber of Commerce's soccer clinic held in Aurora on June 3rd. In total, 180 kids attended the event from the local community. Giovani dos Santos, a Mexican professional footballer, was also in attendance at the event, playing and talking with the kids throughout each session. Emilio Romero, a coaching friend and supporter of Rush Soccer, connected with Tim Schulz, President & CEO of Colorado Rush, to have Rush staff attend and help staff the event. 


For 3 hours Sunday morning, kids from the community worked on foot skills, played small sided games, and interacted with dos Santos who jumped into to play with the kids as well. Rush staff members led different stations where kids worked on ball control and first touch in a fun, engaging environment.  This is the 2nd annual clinic Colorado Rush has helped staff. The club enjoyed connecting with more soccer fans and families in Denver!

Pepsi, US Bank, and Children’s Hospital were on site to help sponsor the event along with the Rush staff from Colorado Rush, North Denver Rush, and Rush Pikes Peak. The 2 turf fields at Park Field Lake Park were filled with smiling kids, upbeat music, and energetic coaches. Around 12:30p, the kids and staff gathered for a picture with dos Santos before sitting and listening to his journey from his youth experience to professional playing ranks. He highlighted the value of respecting coaches and authority figures, perfecting the first touch, and working hard to achieve goals. 

Many players spent some time after the clinic waiting to get a picture with dos Santos before heading home. Overall, the event was a huge success. Rush staff from area Rush clubs look forward to helping support this annual event and community members next year!
