The hypocrits of Youth Soccer
The TRUTH that needs to be told is how “hypocritical” the Rush Soccer Club and the Kansas Rush Soccer Club are overall. The Clubs promote one philosophy and practices another.
The Rush Club promotes, it “is committed to making soccer a pleasant, safe, and rewarding experience for everyone involved, REGARDLESS OF ABILITY, and we believe that all players are winners because everyone is afforded an EQUALITY OPPORTUNITY to explore their potential and pursue positive outcomes on and off the field.” Also, “IF YOU WANT TO PLAY, WE HAVE A PLACE FOR YOU.” The Kansas Rush Club promotes, “to offer the youth of Olathe (KS) the opportunity to participate in an organized soccer program WITHOUT REGARD TO THEIR SKILL LEVEL. To stress the participation, enjoyment, sportsmanship, skill development, safety, and teamwork aspects of the game of soccer, rather than being a "win at all costs" program.”
However, the Clubs practice a “win at all costs” program. If the Club feels you cannot contribute to winning or a more skilled player is available, players are released. I know this to be true at the Kansas Rush Club and other Rush Clubs around the country, according to comments I’ve heard from other families at Rush functions.
Choose another Club.
