Washington Rush Premier Tryout FAQ
We strongly encourage you to pre-register for tryouts. Pre-registration allows Washington Rush to know how many evaluators and coaches to have at a tryout. It also allows shorter lines for check in. Online registration is available through the Washington Rush website (www.washingtonrush.com).
Yes, we think all players should play other sports at a young age. Eventually they may choose one primary sport, but we do not require you to specialize in only soccer.
Our Premier teams play at the highest level in Washington Youth Soccer.
Washington Rush Teams are named in the following order:

Azul - C Team
Cinza - D Team
Yes, players can and do move to different teams throughout the year. We understand that some players might not show well at a tryout or they may excel once they are in our training environment. We will make sure players are playing with the appropriate level.
Yes, players can be added to the roster throughout the year.
There are plenty of options available to those that do not. The Rush Select program is a fantastic way to stay involved and hone your skills. At the younger age groups, the Washington Rush Junior Academy Program in the spring is a great option to continue your soccer developmental cycle. Players that are interested in other opportunities should contact their age group head coach.
We ask that every player that is trying out for a Washington Rush team be ready to commit to the team upon receiving an offer. This will speed up the process for everyone else in the age group. Decisions must be made within 24 hours as there are players that will be offered a spot should one decline an offer. Acceptance of a roster spot is confirmed ONLY when you register..
All players will be evaluated based on their technical, tactical, and physical abilities. Players who exhibit a strong work ethic and show respect to other players and coaches show well. Players should expect to attend a tryout for 60-90 minutes and will be put into skill-based activities, small-sided games, and full field games for assessment by Rush evaluators.
We ask that every player attend at least two tryouts. This gives the coaches and evaluators an opportunity to see players over a longer period of time and make a fair assessment of the player. If you can make all three tryouts that would be best, but we understand that this can be difficult for some families.
