The United States Soccer Federation has announced that they will be developing a U12 age group in their player developmental system for boys starting in 2016.  The Texas Rush is one of only three clubs in the whole of the Houston soccer market which will offer this level of coaching and player development opportunity.

“It’s exciting to see that the US Soccer Federation is continually looking to advance the development process for boy’s soccer across the country.  By adding the U12 age group in 2016 will give more opportunities for the best soccer players to be in the correct environment on a daily basis at a younger age.  The club will relish the opportunity to develop this age group at the required level.”  Dave Dengerink, Director of Player Development – USSDA.

U14G Texas Cup Champions

The Texas Cup Soccer Tournament in Dallas is the largest and most recognized girls’ soccer tournament in the state. The Texas Rush U-14 girls attended the event which was held over the Thanksgiving weekend to prepare for their upcoming SCL qualifiers. The girls won the tournament with a solid first round performance managing three wins. A 2-0 win Vs FC Dallas , 1-0 win Vs Sting Central and a 2-0 win Vs Lonestar White South. The team faced stiff wind and a very tough Lonestar Red team in the semi-final which finished in a 0-0 draw after extra time. The semi-final game ended in a dramatic penalty shootout with the Texas Rush girls advancing to the final. The Rush girls faced first round opponent FC Dallas in the final in what turned out to be a dramatic game. FC Dallas took a 2-0 lead into halftime, but after goals from Alison McCrady and Nicole Olaya the game was tied with 10 minutes left. The Rush girls showed a lot of determination and with 3 minutes remaining, a long range effort from Natalia Ortega found the back of the net and gave the girls the championship with a 3-2 win.
