  14. 14. Open Discussion How can the merger benefit Chesapeake player and coaches? The best players, no matter where they come from, are placed on teams accordingly. VCCL, ECNL, USSDA teams are made up of players from all of Hampton Roads not just Va Beach. Our top teams play in regional and national leagues and players deserving of this level of play are placed on these teams. All other players will be playing in VSLI. There is a place for all players to play based on their ability level and the individual player’s needs. DOC training for players and formal and informal coaching education for coaches. Players receive training from DOCs who are A license/B license coaches. Coaches receive additional training through the US Soccer coaching curriculum as well as ongoing coaches training provided by Rush DOCs. League Structure: USSDA, ECNL, VCCL, VSLi, Advanced, Developmental Future: League acceptance into a league between USSDA/ECNL and VCCL. Raise the level of play for the players. Chesapeake keeps their identity and Geographic presence by retaining the existing infrastructure. (VA Rush has successfully done this before with the Peninsula). Soccer in the area will benefit. The customer- the player!“Where The Trails Of Passion And Purpose Meet, Begins The Path To Victory.”
  15. 15. Questions and Answers • Branch Offices: Peninsula office, VA Beach office, Chesapeake office (future). • Teams are branch and regionally based. Peninsula Branch, VA Beach Branch and Chesapeake Branch will all have teams playing in the VSLI. USSDA/ECNL and VCCL teams are based regionally but have players from Chesapeake, Newport News, Hampton, Norfolk playing for them (9% of current VA Rush players are from Chesapeake). Players with the ability level are offered positions to play on our top teams. They can accept this position or can continue to play for the branch based team. • Chesapeake players (like Peninsula players) will continue to have team training session in Chesapeake and Rush Directors of Coaching will conduct DOC training for these players in Chesapeake at a Chesapeake location. • Merging of the clubs provide more opportunities for top players to play in the two top national leagues (ECNL/USSDA) as well as VCCL. This affords current Chesapeake players to play up two leagues higher than what they are playing in now. Players do not have to leave Chesapeake/Rush to compete in these leagues. • Coaching Expectation: Travel/competitive coaches are required to obtain USSF National Licenses. Advanced and recreation coaches are also required to attend USSF license programs. Rush pays for it’s coaches to attend the USSF Licenses. All coaches are welcome to attend any and all continuing coaching education session held by VA Rush and it’s staff.“Where The Trails Of Passion And Purpose Meet, Begins The Path To Victory.”
  16. 16. Question and Answer (cont) • All Rush players receive seasonal player evaluations from their coaches/DOCs • A Full Time Rush DOC (Va Rush – Chesapeake Technical Director) will be put in charge of the VA Rush Chesapeake to ensure all programs, information and the Rush Way is passed onto all Chesapeake players and coaches, from competitive/travel all the way down to PEE WEE (recreational players). • VCCL votes. For the record, VA Rush voted to add Chesapeake to the VCCL. It is what is best for the soccer community. • VA Rush (both on the Southside and Peninsula) are a complete club supporting soccer from our recreational players (U4-U10), Advanced players (U9-U19) and competitive players (U10 – U18). Chesapeake will have the same benefit as the other two branches“Where The Trails Of Passion And Purpose Meet, Begins The Path To Victory.”
