Foreign Exchange Program
The modern version of the game of soccer is over 120 years old. We are only a fraction of its history, but we are, nevertheless, part of millions that play, dream, support or govern the most popular game on earth. It is our responsibility to respect and carry on its traditions. It is our duty to teach the game to the younger generations. It is our passion that gives the game its flare.
Soccer has united the world for decades, has made millions of people proud and has more to offer then just wins and losses. The game is a way of life for some, but holds life lessons for all.
The Rush is committed to exposing its members to the World's Game and providing the best opportunities for our youngsters to experience its multi cultural flares and traditions from all around the world.
The Foreign Affairs program is designed to:
Promote the game of soccer in the community and provide a comprehensive and educational soccer program.
Provide a soccer experience that will meet our member's needs and allow them to achieve their highest potential and thus become the best soccer club in the state and nation.
Promote the spirit of sportsmanship and a world wide association through the game of soccer.
Provide the coaching staff with opportunities of continuous education and exposure to the latest and most modern training methods.
Create affiliations and exchange experiences with other clubs and cultures around the world.
Expose our youngsters to the world talent and facilitate their education and training through personal experiences.
It is our intent to cultivate relationships with soccer organizations and foreign soccer clubs. The previously mentioned bullets will help us achieve our objectives.
