Club Raffle Rules
Our Club holds fundraising events to help raise money for the Financial Aid Program and Field Fund.  The Club raffle is one of the few events that take place each year.  

The drawing for the Club Raffle will be held on August 3, 2019 at the WA Rush Cup Tournament.

1st Place Prize is $5,000.00
2nd Place Prize is $3,500.00
3rd Place Prize is $1,500.00

The winner of the raffle does not need to be present to win. The odds of winning depend on the number of tickets sold. 

The raffle is open to U.S. Residents Only, and must be at least 18 years of age to purchase a ticket.  

If a person under the age of 18 years has a winning ticket, they will be disqualified, because they are not eligible to purchase a ticket. 

The Winner(s) will be notified by phone, email, and their names will also be posted on the Club website and in the Club newsletter, within 10 days of the drawing. If the Winner does not respond within 9 days of drawing for the prize, a new winner will be drawn in its place.  

The Club will withhold any federal income tax or other taxes associated with the winning ticket and report withholding to the IRS.  The Club will also provide a form W-2G to the winner no later than December 31, 2019. 

All information on the ticket must be legible and accurate in order to be a winning ticket.  

EACH PLAYER IS TO SELL AT LEAST ONE BOOK OF TICKETS (10 TICKETS).  MULTI PLAYER FAMILIES ARE TO SELL AT LEAST 15 TICKETS.  ANY TICKET SOLD BEYOND THE 10 PER PLAYER/15 PER FAMILY AMOUNT WILL RECEIVE 50% OF THE TICKET PRICE TOWARD TEAM FEES.   For Example – Joe Smith sold 3 books.  The first book was the required book to sell, the second and third book netted $100 to go towards team fees (50% of the ticket price - $50 per book of 10 tickets).  The money will be given to the team at the end of August after the raffle event is completed and reconciled. 

The player that sells the most tickets will win a Prize.    So sell sell sell!!  Last year the winning player sold over 90 tickets. 

Employees of WA Rush and their spouses and children are not eligible to win a prize. 

Special instructions to Raffle Reps – 

Please make sure the player’s name is on the back of the ticket stubs so they get proper credit. 

Encourage your players to sell the raffle tickets.  You can easily receive some funds for your team fees.  If you need more raffle books, contact me directly. 

When you turn in your team’s raffle stubs and money, make sure the money and tickets match up.  If they don’t the team will be responsible for making up the difference so make sure your money/raffle stubs are reconciled.

DA 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.
