Iowa Rush Soccer Club

Academy 9U-10U

The Iowa Rush Academy Program provides a quality environment for players to grow in their understanding of the game of soccer.  Through quality instruction, improved methodology, and effective communication, a solid foundation is established for children to continue progressing in the sport.

WHO IS IT FOR?

- Children who have been involved in organized soccer for at least one season (For example: 7U-8U Rush Soccer, Ankeny Parks and Rec, etc.). Players without organized soccer experience are encouraged to participate with an Iowa Rush Recreational Team for one season before enrolling in Academy.

- Players likely interested to continue participating in the sport at the Select or Recreational levels at 11U.

- Children considering playing high school soccer in the future.

"We wanted to let you know how impressed Rod and I have been with Rush and the coaches this season. What an amazing group. Natalie had such a good experience. We have two older kids that have played sports for years on travel teams. Rush is wonderful. Just can’t say enough about all of you. Thank you so much for welcoming Natalie!"
