Southwest Virginia Rush

School of Excellence (2007-2010 Birth Years)



Winter 2020-2021: Stay active, keep your foot on the ball! Enroll now in low-risk outdoor winter soccer.

The School of Excellence Program is an intensive six-week program geared towards players who are ready to take their footballing commitment to the next level. It is designed for players of all interest, experience, and ability levels seeking a higher level of instruction between the ages of 10 and 14.  It offers an exceptional transitional opportunity for recreational players preparing to join a competitive or scholastic-based pathway. Featuring an established curriculum and guided by a passionate and committed licensed coaching staff, the School of Excellence offers extraordinary player development.  The training environment is fun, structured and safe – a place where players can express themselves and learn what soccer has to offer, the Rush Way.

There is no cost to register and attend the first week of training on a trial basis; however, players and parent/guardians must commit to participate at a high standard for regular attendance, take home challenges, journaling, and virtual tactical modules. Weekly take home assignments are mandatory. Completion reinforces SoE lessons and provides an opportunity for personal accountability, continual learning, and development.

For each age group, one training session each week focuses on 1v1, 2v1, and 2v2 themes using street soccer games within US Soccer's Play-Practice-Play model. The second session features small group tactical play in groups of 3 or more using rondo and positional play training games.

All players who satisfactorily complete the program earn a $60 single season registration voucher for SWVA Champions Cup League - SWVA Rush Soccer's regional advanced soccer competition format. Players wishing to compete in the Spring 2021 league can do so before middle and high school season kickoff in mid April.
