Chicago Rush Select Tryouts

For the 2020-2021 soccer year, we will again be offering our Premier players the opportunity to be a part of the Chicago Rush Select & National Select programs.

There will be no Chicago Rush Select tryout this year for our current players. Instead, our Chicago Rush Select rosters will be formed through coach nomination or director recommendation within our database based off performance across the current soccer year.

New players will be invited to express their interest in being placed on Select within the pre registration process. At our club tryouts, our coaching staff will assess those who wish to be considered for a roster position for both levels. Select squads and programming will follow the club offers invitations.

In 2019, Rush Select teams travelled to Italy, Costa Rica and Sweden to compete against some top teams overseas.

Midway through the year, Rush Select was "Reloaded" to open up opportunities for more Rush players to be involved in the program.
