TIM SCHULZ, Director of Coaching, Colorado Rush Soccer Club, Region IV Boys Head Coach.
We have been playing the following progression in the Colorado Rush organization for approximately 10 years: U-5 and U-6, 3v3; U-7 and U-8, 4v4; U-9 and U-10, 8v8. The results speak for themselves. Our club's enrollment grew from 1,800 to 5,800. We have Olympic Players, National Players and Professional Players that developed in our system. We have won 10 national Championships in the last four years. We have people who grew up through the club system who are now coaches volunteering to give back to the game.
WE HAVE HAD A BOARD OF DIRECTORS THAT IS VERY PROGRESSIVE IN THEIR THINKING AND NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE LOGISTICAL OBSTACLES TO GETTING IT DONE.
