Player Development Program

PA Rush Soccer Club’s travel program prides itself on placing the player first. In an effort to enhance that process we offer our Player Development Program (PDP), which is designed to provide the dedicated soccer player with a wide array of high level development tools and opportunities. PDP is split into three programs: Friday Night Finishing (FNF), Goalkeeper Academy, and Speed Agility and Quickness (SAQ).  Our mission is to ensure that individuals committed to PA Rush are provided with every resource necessary to reach their full potential as a player.

Funded by the club and open to all travel players with no extra cost, this professionally staffed program consists of age appropriate training curriculums to include the technical elements essential to the game while stressing the individual and team skills vital to success in soccer. We have staggered the SAQ and FNF sessions, so the players can do both sessions without any conflicts for 2 hours of training with the intention of increasing their technical speed and finishing skills.

Highlights of the program:
The club will provide this program in the Spring and Fall and both seasons are free for our travel players. Any travel players coming to the club for 2019/20 season are welcome to join in the sessions.
