JUNIOR PROGRAM CALENDAR

The Junior Program is broken up into 2 "Seasons". Each "season" will represent an opportunity for the players to continue their development with our Coaching Staff for the season. We will have a single tryout date at the beginning of May annually to bring in the best players possible for the age groups.

A contract between player (parent) and club will be required in order to participate. The contract will stipulate expectation, a level of commitment and good conduct in order to be accepted. Contract could be terminated at any time, if the player or Coaching Staff decide that it is no longer a good fit for the player.

HILLSBORO RUSH PHILOSOPHY

We believe in developing the player throughout the club. From kinder through to High School, we believe that every team should be recognizable to another within our club. Players should join the pathway at Kinder level, continue that growth through Junior Premier, Junior Premier II and finish with our Premier programs.

This model creates continuity within the club, which allows each player to learn the language, coaching style and most importantly - how to play within our club parameters. No player should ever have to "relearn" their play when moving from one team to another.

We build our club and coaching philosophy with development at the very foundation of what we do on a daily basis.

Below are the four pillars of what each player will be encouraged to master throughout their soccer career with us at Hillsboro Rush.

01. BUILD FROM THE BACK

Learn to encourage play to begin with the goalkeeper. We want every player to be comfortable on the ball, maximizing touches and encouraging individual growth within the system of play.

02. POSSESSION WITH A PURPOSE

Every player is involved at every moment of play. We encourage movement of the ball within the team, being patient as you shift the opposition, waiting for gaps to appear. When they do, the player must be able to pick the right pass.

03. ALWAYS PLAY WITH ATTACK ON YOUR MIND

We want our players to create as many goal scoring opportunities as possible. This will result in more creativity in the final third, encouraging all players to express themselves and be unpredictable.

04. THE FIRST DEFENDER IS THE FIRST ATTACKER

A high press will allow the team to win the ball back as high up the pitch as possible. Therefore, we encourage every player to learn to defend, and attack.
