Regional Program Overview


Rush Soccer is committed to developing its players to reach their fullest potential as both players and  citizens. In order to create opportunities for our most committed players, CT Rush has created the Regional Program.


Teams are comprised of Rush players across Connecticut at the U12-U18 age groups. These teams will play in the EDP Regional League throughout the year, will compete in the CJSA State Cup, NEP State Cup, and EDP Open Cup and attend top regional level tournaments/showcases.


Selection Process

Regional team selection is based on a tryout process for Rush members as well as through staff recommendations. Coaches will assess the following areas; performance, attitude, training habits, whether players are embracing the Rush Core Values as well as the four pillars of the game, tactical, physicality, psychological, technical skills. Regional teams are designed to supplement players’ full-time Rush team.

It is the intention of the coaching staff that Regional rosters will not remain static in order to take account of player development that is expected throughout the year. Roster size can be anywhere from 15-22 players. There will be 3 OPEN Regional trainings where all players from all branches will be invited and evaluated throughout the year. Based on performance, attitude, and dedication, players can be added to and out of the pool. 

Program Focus

The primary focus of this program is to DEVELOP our players by providing an additional high-level training and competition that complements the work they are doing in their full-time team. We are committed to creating a training environment of the highest level of quality and providing our players with the opportunity to play against some of the top teams in the region/nation.
