Train Right. Play Right.

“Factual, real advice to guide you through the complicated college recruitment process.”

The College Advisory Program (C.A.P.) provides high school age players and their parents with an introduction to the college recruiting, scholarship, financial support, and selection process. This process can be bewildering at times and the intent of the C.A.P. is to offer factual advice and assist in every way possible. The Rush Soccer Club staff will provide guidance but, will not do those tasks that the player and parents can and must do for themselves. On the following pages you will find everything you need, including links and videos to successfully navigate this process. We encourage parents and players to actively engage with their coaches and C.A.P. Director throughout the process.
