Recreational Soccer PROGRAM


Palm Beach Rush’s Recreational Program is an exciting, fun and energetic in-house program for players 4+ years old! Teams will be formed based on age, teammate requests and coach requests.

The rush Way

Recreational soccer stresses the participation, enjoyment, sportsmanship, skill development, safety, and teamwork aspects of the game. The goal is for the players to learn and fall in love with the sport of soccer.

Rush staff will support the coaches with coaching education tools and pre-made training sessions to ensure a great environment for the players.
