Rush Equipment Assisting Children (REACH)

PA Rush is collecting new and used soccer jerseys, soccer shorts, cleats, shin guards, balls, nets, cones, goalie gear, and soccer socks. These items will be shipped to Colorado Rush who will then ship to the Country in need.

  • All clothing and equipment must be clean
  • We cannot accept any clothing that is ripped, frayed, or has holes
  • If you donate shoes or shin guards, please be sure to bundle each pair together with rubber bands or string

There is a bin located at the PA Rush Soccer Complex, 1645 Upper State Rd., Doylestown, PA 18901, where you can drop off donations.

Our REACH Program has many ways to give back to the game that you love. 
 
From donating your old gear, volunteering your time to collect and sort REACH gear, to taking it to the extreme by joining us on a 2019 Player OutREACH Trip where you will be taking gear in person to one of our International Rush Clubs with other Rush players and coaches.  
 
If you have ever thought you'd like to go on a soccer mission trip, now is the time to act!  We are accepting applications for 4 separate trips that will take place next summer.  Trips will begin planning and fundraising in October, so APPLY TODAY!
 
Choose from 4 locations: Rwanda, Honduras, Belize or Cancun
 
Each trip will offer amazing site-seeing, community projects, a ton of soccer, the chance to distribute REACH gear and will leave with new friends and memories of a lifetime.  Check out this video from the 2018 Player OutREACH Trip to Honduras and Belize last July and hear from some of the players what the experience meant to them.  
 
If you will be U16-U19 next summer, an active Rush player and want to share your love of the game, this experience is for you!

About REACH

Through the REACH program, the international Rush Soccer organization supports disadvantaged youth in developing countries by partnering with local Rush soccer clubs, schools, nonprofit organizations, and communities to provide soccer uniforms and gear. By linking equipment donations to on-the-ground programs that develop youth soccer skills and promote health and education, REACH is contributing to stronger, healthier communities in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.

Since the launch of the REACH Program in 2002 Rush Soccer has distributed hundreds of thousands of pieces of soccer gear to more than 30 developing countries around the world. From tsunami victims and Russian orphans, to the children of war-torn Iraq or HIV-ravaged southern Africa, REACH has given thousands of kids a chance to enjoy the game. 

Used Uniform Program

In June of 2010, the REACH program implemented its first coordinated and comprehensive  used uniform collection program in an effort to greatly scale-up the number of uniforms distributed around the world.  This program encourages our clubs through the players and parents to collect their old Rush uniform kits to help support the R.E.A.C.H. project.  R.E.A.C.H.’s goal is to provide uniform kits and training gear to orphanages and youth programs in communities in need, both in the U.S and abroad.

Rush uniform REBATE program is outlined here. Player and Team Tally that is used with the REBATE program is available here, and a sample is here

What it does

Right now, Rush Soccer as a global organization is endeavoring to collect approximately 4,500 used uniform kits annually. Over ten years, that will represent 45,000 uniforms distributed throughout the world!  The impact both from humanitarian side is staggering and does not include additional pieces of soccer equipment such as balls, shin guards, warm up jackets and pants, etc. (estimated at 300,000 pieces) that are also collected.  The organizations long term goal is to tripled the uniform distribution to 135,000 annually.
