 Iowa Rush Soccer Club provides a youth soccer experience with proven player development methods, age group curriculum, and professional coaches that are held to high standards to aid in the development of each individual within the club.  Iowa Rush is affiliated with Rush Soccer, which is a national and international soccer club boasting the most youth soccer players in the world.  This connection assists with additional resources, playing opportunities and experiences for players, while allowing local branches to operate independently based on the needs of their local soccer community.  Through this international connection, members are a part of something globally recognized as a leader within the game.  As examples, players can attend college showcases and tournaments with other Rush partners across the US to be seen by the college coaches of their choice, coaches can participate in annual coaching courses and Rush symposiums to continue to grow and bring their experience back to players locally and all clubs share a common development model with a strong sense of CORE VALUES that help players become good people off the field while becoming better players on the field. 


Paul Fabry, the Executive/Technical Director of Iowa Rush states, “For Iowa Rush, the statement ‘The destination club of choice in the state for all players’ is more than a tagline, it’s our vision statement.  We want to help grow the game of soccer across the state and through the process help players develop through our development philosophy and methodology while expanding opportunities for all players.  With the addition of our first Iowa Rush affiliate in the state, we are taking major strides in helping achieve this vision and giving players a local option to be a part of the Rush Way experience.  When we hired Kirk Artist (former Wartburg Men’s Soccer Coach) this past winter, we discussed this vision, and the first club out of his mouth to connect with was WSRSC, knowing the club, it’s leadership and the needs of soccer in the area he thought it would be a great fit.  Through our conversations and research, we believe it’s a great location to connect with to grow the game and along with the support of the WSRSC Board of directors and community, we know it’s going to a great success!”

 Iowa Rush President, John Brandt says, “The Iowa Rush is excited to add the Waverly Shell Rock Soccer Club's competitive teams to our Rush family.  The addition of a top Iowa program will provide an unmatched framework for developing youth soccer in Iowa.  The entire Iowa Rush staff looks forward to the evolution and results from pulling in a very strong club to establish a Northern presence in the State of Iowa.”

 The WSRSC Board of Directors expressed, “The WSRSC Board is excited to announce a partnership with Iowa Rush.  As our competitive teams continue to develop, we want to provide our members a more professional soccer experience.  Iowa Rush has a proven tradition of developing successful and competitive soccer players.  It is our goal that this partnership will take our competitive program to a higher level.”

 Iowa Rush Soccer Club is committed to providing an unrivaled soccer experience for players of all abilities and age levels.  The club teaches life lessons to further the athlete’s growth inside the game and out, through core-values, sportsmanship and community outreach.  All players are given the opportunity to maximize their potential, realize their dreams and cultivate passion for the game.  Through quality coaching, sound leadership and the connection with the world-wide Rush organization, Iowa Rush Soccer Club will work to be the destination club of choice in the state of Iowa.
