Breast Cancer Awareness – October 2016





Breast Cancer Awareness month of October is quickly approaching and the club is looking to have the color pink prominently displayed across the club.

We invite all Texas Rush players and families to support this cause by purchasing the 2016 “Rush for the Cure” T-shirt. During October, players are encouraged to wear their pink shirts on their team’s first training session each week and before games during their warm up.


One thousand seven hundred shirts (1,700) will be sold as part of the ECNL fundraiser.

All shirts (YXS, YS, YM, YL, YXL, AS, AM, AL, AXL, AXXL unisex fit) are $25.00

“The ECNL Program is very proud to be leading this fundraiser and partnering up with the Breast Cancer Awareness month of October.  This program has rapidly grown over the years and this year will be no different as we’re expecting fantastic membership support for such a worthy cause.”  Nick O’Shea, Director of Coaching – ECNL.  



Coach O’Brien U13/14G sold the most shirts (12) and won the $100 voucher to Dicks Sporting Goods in the Recreational area of the club – congrats!

TOPS is always looking for volunteers to assist these players on the field:

We need ‘buddy’ volunteers who can help them learn to play soccer and help them have fun. NO special training is needed, just a desire to help. Many of the buddies over the past 3 years could only commit to a few Saturday morning games due to other commitments (soccer games, etc.) and this has worked well.  Any and all help is appreciated!
