Competitive Soccer

COMPETITIVE OVERVIEW

Most of our teams play in the North Carolina Youth Soccer Association (NCYSA) League, which is part of the United States Youth Soccer Association, with over 2 million registered players nationwide. NCYSA provides 6 different levels of play at each age group, from Recreational to Top Elite, which means that teams are placed at the appropriate level in their various conferences. And because NCYSA has 87 clubs across the state, the travel requirements are not as bad as just about all of the other leagues out there. NC Rush Triad has travel teams in the 11U to 19U age groups. The Competitive division is for the player who is ready to take their development in this sport to the next level. Our competitive teams train 2 to 3 times a week, depending on the level of the team to further develop their technical skills and tactical understanding of the Rush style of play.

Tryout Information

The Head Coach will select his/her team with the assistance of the Directors of Coaching of the Rush. Tryouts for all U11 players and players outside the club will take place during certain times of the year. If a current Rush Competitive player wishes to move to another team, they are encouraged to attend tryouts, as it is the final step in the evaluation process. Upcoming tryout dates can be found here.

  • New players to NC Rush

COMPETITIVE FEES

Our philosophy is that we want all kids who have the ability to play regardless of their ability to pay. We keep our fees as low as possible, and in fact they are some of the lowest in the state for a full service club. Depending on the age of the player, the family will save between $700 and $1,700 playing for our club vs. the big club in the area. We are proud of that!
