IRG

Integrated Rehabilitation Group (IRG), the northwest leader in physical and specialized therapy, always has the athlete in mind:

  • Expert prevention, strength, and conditioning to assist with performance on the field.
  • Education off the field to fuel recovery for continued success.
  • Rehabilitation when injuries happen to get you back in the game fast, functional, and pain free.

It is with great pleasure to announce that we have partnered with Washington Rush Soccer Club for 2016 as the official Sports Medicine and Strength and Conditioning provider. With this great resource, you can jump start your athletes success for the upcoming year. As a family in the Washington Rush organization, you are entitled to:

  • Free same day* injury or movement screening at one of our 30 clinics, located in Snohomish and King County.
  • Free Training Pass to our private Sports Performance Strength and Conditioning classes. Our training programs increase power, straight ahead speed, agility, and highly reduce the risk of injuries like tendonitis, ankle sprains, and major injuries like ACL Tears.
  • Two free Team Clinics at one of our training locations or your practice field. Age appropriate exercises, volume and load manipulation, and expert guidance are utilized to help athletes avoid missing that time on the field that players need to develop.
  • Discounted Strength and Conditioning private Classes.
  • Discounted Team Training Sessions that can be integrated into practice sessions.
  • Free Parent and Coaching Clinics on Developing Athleticism, Injury Prevention, First Aid Response, Concussion Management, College Recruiting, and Sports Performance Nutrition.

If you have any questions about this new partnership, would like to schedule a free movement screening to identify risk factors or aches or pains, or just have general concerns about your athlete’s athletic development in general, please reach out to me at your convenience. We look forward to supporting Washington Rush Soccer and meeting you soon! Stay tuned for dates of great club wide events!

DA Philosophy

Philosophy

“The Rush Way to Play is based upon movement and activity by both player and ball. Possession-oriented does not fully describe how we play; attack-oriented does. Whether in possession or in defense, we are attacking. Rush Players play with freedom, yet understand the importance of responsibility and the balance between the two. Rush teams are flexible and adapt to varying circumstances. The Rush Way to Play represents both passion and purpose”.

•     Players are to be comfortable with a possession-based passing game, where the team will look to try and play out from the back in a coordinated and controlled manner and is developed through the thirds in order to produce goal-scoring opportunities when possible

•     Players will look to recognize opportunities to play forward and execute counter-attacking opportunities where possible but not at the expense of losing possession

•     Players will, upon losing possession, look to immediately regain possession by defending from the front as a preferred option, or to drop and establish a compact defensive shape when unable to do so

•     Above all, our teams are expected to display a competitive and winning mentality – winning games is of importance; however, this is not at the expense of the playing philosophy

The U12 age group will predominantly focus on technical development incorporating decision-making and consideration for basic principles of play. They will play predominantly in a flexible 4-2-2 formation with players encouraged to rotate positions. The U13 & U14 age groups will focus more toward tactical understanding and technical refinement. Players will still be required to have an understanding of a range of positions but as they progress through this phase should begin to develop a primary position within the team. 11v11 games will adopt a flexible 4-3-3 formation. The key aspect regarding formations is that they are a guide. The style of play is dictated by the playing philosophy and takes precedence overall.
