NM Rush proven youth player pipeline for MLS Next, College and Pro!

NM Rush Soccer Club has a proven track record of developing top-flight youth soccer players over the last 10 years.  Many of our top youth boys players have moved onto various MLS Next academies, college, and professional programs.  NM Rush Technical Director, Justin Sells stated "the environment, expectations and Rush core values truly sets the standard for our member players and is the main catalyst that allows us to develop players that move on to have success at the next level.  This has been evident with former players such as Justin Schmidt and Sergio Rivas.  Both players had great youth careers with NM Rush representing the state at the various USYS and US Club soccer Regional and National events, moved on to successful college careers capped off by each being MLS SuperDraft selections in 2017 and 2019 respectively.  The main goal of the club is to provide our players with a challenging soccer education and a developmental pathway that features various outlets designed to maximize overall player development.  From a technical standpoint our player development formula combined with opportunities as a Rush affiliate have worked great for our club."
