Uniform Ordering Information

All registered Rush players will receive an email from soccer.com inviting them to order their 2017-2019 required uniforms (if you have yet to receive an ordering link, please contact your Team Manager). All required items will be designated as such once one is logged into their account. Uniforms must be ordered by June 1, or you run the risk of not receiving your order until mid-to-late August.

Uniform Fitting Nights are your chance for your player to get their uniforms properly sized and fitted. Fitting nights are offered by the club as a convenience to you and your child. Attendance at fittings is voluntary but please keep in mind that uniforms are customized and can’t be returned due to fitting issues

2018 Fitting Night schedule:
There are no more fittings scheduled for this season

If you have any questions, please contact Sandy Baker at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


WHEN DO I ORDER? Once your team roster information is provided to the club, each player will receive an email message that provides a link to the player’s personalized online order page on the soccer.com website. Please plan to place your order within five (5) calendar days following the receipt of this email from soccer.com. This will assure that any custom items delivered within a timely manner (production time for these custom items is typically 45 days).

HOW DO I PAY FOR MY ORDER? You need to pay at the time you order online.

WILL THERE BE A DISCOUNT FOR FAMILIES THAT WANT TO BUY TWO SETS OF UNIFORMS? Unfortunately no, we negotiated the best possible pricing with all price savings passed on to our members. 

WHAT UNIFORMS WILL PLAYERS WEAR FOR TOURNAMENTS BEFORE THE GAME KITS ARE SHIPPED? Teams should wear the training kit (training jersey, shorts, and socks) for summer games until all rostered players have delivery of the game kits. If all tournament players have the current (prior season) Rush game kits available to wear, that uniform can be worn as well.

WILL I BE ABLE TO PURCHASE UNIFORMS AT FITTINGS? No, uniforms are ordered online through soccer.com. You will be sent an ordering link shortly after coming to your uniform fitting, after your Team Manager has submitted all team roster information. If you have yet to receive an ordering link, please contact your Team Manager.  

You will be able to purchase Training Shirts at the Uniform Fittings. Cash, check or debit/credit accepted. 

WHAT SHOULD THE PLAYER WEAR TO THE FITTING? Anything comfortable that will facilitate fittings. We will not have private areas available other than restrooms. For these reasons, girls should wear sports bras or compression tops. For trying on shorts, we suggest that boys and girls wear compression shorts.

WILL THERE BE SOMEWHERE FOR THE PLAYERS TO CHANGE IN ORDER TO TRY ON GARMENTS? Space will be limited. See above for recommendations on what to wear to the fittings.

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.
