Frequently Asked Questions

Can my child tryout at an older age group?
All players need to report to their own birth year tryout date unless otherwise specified by Rush WI West staff.  Rush WI West staff will inform a player if they should attend an older, additional birth year tryout session.

What are mock tryouts? 
Mock tryouts are the for the academy aged players. Mock tryouts are required and offered to help players become familiar with the tryout process. All players attending mock tryouts will be placed on a Rush Academy team as long as numbers allows.  Our goal is to be able to form teams by birth year. If this cannot be done, we will use the first 2 weeks of practice in August to form teams by skill level. Teams will participate in 1 pool (group) training session and 1 team training session each week. 

How many sessions does my player have to attend? 
A player only needs to attend one session, but understand that the best chance of being properly evaluated occurs by attending both tryout sessions for their birth year. 

When does registration for tryouts end?
Online registration will remain open throughout the birth year tryout sessions.  Tryouts will cost $15 for returning players and $25 for new incoming players. Each player will receive a 2021-2022 training shirt with their tryout fee.
*Please note early bird registration for tryouts will close on 5/28/2021. On 5/29/2021, tryout registration will increase to $40 for everyone.  On-site registration is $40.

What if my child is a goalkeeper?
If a player wants to be evaluated at the goalkeeper position, they will need to go with the goalkeeper coach at the beginning of the tryout session. If they want to be evaluated as a goalkeeper and field player, the player needs to state at tryouts during check-in that they want to evaluate first on the field and second as a goalkeeper.  They should also present this information to their field coach at the beginning of their birth year tryout.

What happens in high school?
We want to make it clear that when your player reaches High School, his/her Rush Career is NOT over!  The high school age is still a crucial time for development. While we encourage players to play for their high school, we also recognize that it is difficult to continue development in the high school soccer setting as teams are constantly chasing results and games thus resulting in little training as training is mostly used for recovery between games. So what does this mean? During their Rush season players will still play in either the MAYSA or State League in addition to 2 tournaments.

Boys (Wisconsin and Minnesota Residents) - When you player is in 8th grade they will finish through June of the spring season with Rush. They will then attend Rush tryouts in June 2021 for their 2022 Spring Rush season. They will then play High School soccer from Mid Aug-Mid Nov. They can then choose to participate in our winter training program once High School finishes. If they play another winter high school sport, they do not have to do winter training, it is up to them! Then they will play with Rush from March 2022 through June 2022 and then attend tryouts again in late June 2022 for their 2023 Spring season. Then the cycle repeats!

Girls (Wisconsin Residents) - When you player is in 8th grade they will finish through June of the spring season with Rush. They will then attend Rush tryouts in June 2021 for their 2021 Fall Rush season. They will then play Rush mid Aug 2021-early Nov 2021. They can choose to participate in Rush winter training in order to prepare for their High School season, but they do not have to. Then they play High School soccer March 2022 - June 2022. Once High School is over they will then attend tryouts in June 2022 for their 2022 Fall season and then the cycle repeats itself!

* Girls Minnesota residents will have to choose between High School soccer and playing with Rush

What changes for parents?

  • You are only paying for 1 Rush season with the option of adding winter training
  • You are only traveling for 1 season
  • Your player is getting closer to being able to drive and they will soon be able to take themselves to some of these events!
