Established in 2002, REACH (Rush Equipment Assisting Children) is a Rush Soccer initiative that allows every Rush player to make a difference for the game that we love on a global scale. The REACH Program collects your used uniforms, soccer equipment and soccer balls at a local level and then redistributes them to our International Rush / REACH Partner Clubs as well as other underprivileged children around the nation and the globe. So the answer to the question 'What is REACH?' is REACH IS YOU!


Rush Soccer currently has over 30 International Rush / REACH Partner Clubs and we are growing! With your donations the REACH Program supports more than 2500 players in need of soccer gear and equipment. So far this year your donations have REACHED Rush Soccer Club Players in Canada, Jamaica, Trinidad/Tobago, Senegal, Dubai, Haiti, Uganda, Togo, Niyakko Rush (Aurora Colorado), Kenya, Honduras, Ghana, Peru, Cameroon, Tanzania, Belize, the SESSI Program (Colorado Springs). Many more players need YOUR donations! Learn more about our Rush International Partner REACH Clubs and see players around the world proudly wearing the Rush 'R' on their uniforms at www.facebook.com/REACHSoccerProgram/


In addition to shipping gear and equipment to our partner clubs from our headquarters in Littleton, Colorado, The REACH Program encourages our Rush Coaches and Players to travel to our REACH Clubs. Do you have players with a humanitarian streak and the travel bug? Let us help you plan a REACH Trip. Not only will you bring gear and joy to the people you meet, your life will never be the same. Does someone in your club have a connection to one of our REACH Clubs? Are you going to one of our locations for business or personal travel? Church Mission? Don't show up empty handed!
