In 1996 two small clubs (Lakewood Fury and Club Columbine) in Littleton, Colorado joined forces to become the Colorado Rush. Since that time, the core values, soccer and business methodologies and philosophies, and player development tools that guide the club, have proven effective time and time again.
The Colorado Rush have won an unprecedented 14 National Championships, most recently in July of 2009, and more than any other club in the country on the girls side.
The Colorado Rush W-League team, established in 2010, coached by Colorado Rush Technical Director Erik Bushey, will be the top team within the club on the girl’s side and will also provide college players with an opportunity to play at a high level during their offseason. Youth players from within the club along with Colorado Rush alums will comprise the majority of the team. Top college players from across the country fill out the remainder of the roster.
In 2003, the Rush brand began its expansion, first forming the Virginia Rush. Since that time, Rush Soccer has grown to 25 states and a membership of nearly 40,000 players nationwide. In mid July of 2009 Rush broke the mold yet again by starting a Rush affiliate 9600 miles from it’s original home in Colorado, by forming the Nkomazi Rush in South Africa. Ghana, Gambia, Senegal, Togo and several other African countries (11 in total) have all joined Rush soccer since that time. Rush Soccer also has begun to partner with clubs in Asia (Thailand Rush) and are in talks with several South American countries.
