Selling Tips and Guidelines

  • Raffle tickets are $10 each.
  • Each player is to sell at least one book of tickets (10 tickets). A family with more than one player in Rush will sell 15 tickets minimum.
  • If you sell more than 10 tickets (single player household) or 15 tickets (multi-player household), you will earn back $5 for each ticket beyond the minimum. These funds will be applied to your team fees. For example, if you have one player in Rush and they sell 20 tickets, you will receive a $50 credit against your team fees. Credits will be issued once all raffle proceeds have been accounted for and reconciled. These funds are not eligible to be refunded back to you at the end of the season.
  • Please have checks for sold tickets made payable to Washington Rush.
  • Make sure your player’s name and team is on the back of each ticket stub so they get proper credit. More raffle books can be obtained through your team Raffle Rep or Team Manager.
  • Your Raffle Rep or Team Manager will collect your sold raffle stubs, unsold tickets and $$ on a date to be determined by them but no later than December 1, 2021.

Raffle Rules

  • The winner of the raffle does not need to be present to win. The odds of winning depend on the number of tickets sold.
  • The raffle is open to U.S. Residents Only.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a ticket or win a prize.
  • If a person under the age of 18 years has a winning ticket, they will be disqualified, because they are not eligible to purchase a ticket. A new ticket will be drawn.

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.
