Each team will have a unique team budget that is approved by the coach and a club director. Examples of team expenses include tournament fees, team equipment (first aid kit, team bench, etc.), team travel, and coach travel. These additional expenses may or may not occur, depending on what each team and coach determines is needed.

The team fee will be allocated to the team and is handled by the team treasurer. The unique team expenses will be communicated at the first team meeting after tryouts and will be divided by the number of players on the team.

Families will be charged $80 volunteer fee at the time of registration. This is refundable upon completion of working 2 volunteer hours for the Club ($120 and 3 hours worked for multi-player families). If you paid your fees in full, a refund check will be issued. If you are using the monthly payment plan, a credit will be applied to your account. Refunds/credits will be processed by the end of the season.


Club Raffle: Each Player will need to sell one raffle book (book of 10 tickets for $10 each) as part of the Club Raffle. For families with more than one player in Washington Rush, we ask the family to sell 1.5 books (15 tickets) per family. A portion of the proceeds go directly to fund the Club’s financial aid fund.

DA Philosophy


“The Rush Way to Play is based upon movement and activity by both player and ball. Possession-oriented does not fully describe how we play; attack-oriented does. Whether in possession or in defense, we are attacking. Rush Players play with freedom, yet understand the importance of responsibility and the balance between the two. Rush teams are flexible and adapt to varying circumstances. The Rush Way to Play represents both passion and purpose”.

•     Players are to be comfortable with a possession-based passing game, where the team will look to try and play out from the back in a coordinated and controlled manner and is developed through the thirds in order to produce goal-scoring opportunities when possible

•     Players will look to recognize opportunities to play forward and execute counter-attacking opportunities where possible but not at the expense of losing possession

•     Players will, upon losing possession, look to immediately regain possession by defending from the front as a preferred option, or to drop and establish a compact defensive shape when unable to do so

•     Above all, our teams are expected to display a competitive and winning mentality – winning games is of importance; however, this is not at the expense of the playing philosophy

The U12 age group will predominantly focus on technical development incorporating decision-making and consideration for basic principles of play. They will play predominantly in a flexible 4-2-2 formation with players encouraged to rotate positions. The U13 & U14 age groups will focus more toward tactical understanding and technical refinement. Players will still be required to have an understanding of a range of positions but as they progress through this phase should begin to develop a primary position within the team. 11v11 games will adopt a flexible 4-3-3 formation. The key aspect regarding formations is that they are a guide. The style of play is dictated by the playing philosophy and takes precedence overall.
