Player Placement Process

Returning Rush players, your evaluation has been an ongoing process since last August when the soccer year began. Each day whether the player has been training or playing in a game the team coach is evaluating their soccer abilities and their commitment to their team. Your placement on the team for the next year is determined mostly by their overall performance during the previous year’s play. Going into the player placements, the Technical Staff will have a fair idea were the returning players fit when comparing their abilities. The player placement sessions are specifically used to compare returning players to any new players who attend the sessions. Therefore we strongly recommend that players, returning and new, attend as many of the player placement sessions as possible to give themselves the best opportunity to be evaluated against all of their peers.

Each session will last for at least an hour and a half and will consist of small-sided games such as 4v4 or 7v7 and full-sided games. When evaluating players during the season or at the tryout sessions, the Technical Staff evaluate each player in four different areas: technical (skill) speed of play, tactical (decision making) speed of play, physical (abilities) speed of play, and the competitive psychological traits of the player. In the first three areas identified above each player is evaluated on the speed to which they can execute skill with success, decide when and what to do and their movement around the field. In the fourth area, psychological competiveness, each player is evaluated on their competitive toughness: will to win, work rate and willingness to learn.

Team Placement & Notification Process

The technical staff will place every player that wants to participate in our program for the upcoming year based on the number of players who want to be placed and their ability level. In placing every player only their abilities, the players and their families’ commitment and if the family is in good financial standing with the club will be the factors used. All placements will be determined by which level of play best suits the ability of each player. The Technical Staff will compare and contrast each player’s abilities in each age group and he/she will then be placed on either a competitive team or recommended for our recreational program. Notification of team placement will be made by a Florida Rush Technical Staff representative 24 hours following the final tryout session. This notification will be done via e-mail. At this point each player/family has 24 Hours to accept or reject the offer.  An email response is requested and preferred.  If we do not receive a response we assume you are not accepting and the team spot will be offered it to the next player on our list.
