Rush Fest 2023 kicked off in Port St. Lucie, Florida, home to the Altitude Rush Academy. Rush Fest is an annual event held in mid-July that brings together 2011, 2012 boys’ and girls’ teams and players from Rush programs across the globe. Fifteen players from Rush Canada travelled down to participate in this once in a lifetime event.
The week-long festival of soccer joins competitive games, training sessions, classroom sessions, and a host of social events in one of the most unique soccer events anywhere in the world. Teams compete against one another in morning games that are bracketed for like skilled teams and afternoon training; Keeper-specific training, and classroom sessions run by top coaches from within the Rush family working with the players and team coaches.
This is truly a great event that opens many people’s eyes to the true size and uniqueness of Rush Soccer.
The event has both an opening and closing ceremony that is often the highlight of the week as players get to hang out, dance, and sing Rush songs with players from across the Rush nation and fuse life-long friendships. We do not forget the adults either with a high-level coaching clinic for all coaches in attendance and a world-class parent education session.
The event is designed to give the players the most fun soccer experience of their life with education, games, and memories they will never forget.
