Idaho Rush SOccer Club

U8-U14 Developmental Overview


The Rush Development League (RDL) provides a mid-level competitive play while developing players, coaches and referees without the additional costs and commitment of time required by highly competitive leagues. There is no travel out of town, although some travel in the Boise metro area for practices and games will be required. Players are guaranteed 50 percent playing time during the season and tournament play. The Idaho Rush Select Program is changing its name from Select to The Rush Development League (RDL). This will tie in line with the National Rush Program and the Rush Pathway.


Teams in the Rush Developmental Program are formed in the fall. Once teams are formed, they together for a year. Returning Developmental players may elect to be placed on the same team. To read the full returning team requirements please click HERE 


Developmental U8-U14 teams will play together through both a fall and spring season. Teams in the U19 age groups play separate fall and spring seasons. Games for the fall season generally begin around the last weekend in August and run through the end of October. The spring season generally begins in early March and runs though the mid of May. Pre-season practices for both seasons may begin as soon as three weeks before the first game.

Generally there is only one game per week and games are almost always on Saturdays. Due to limited field space, a team may play some weeknight games and or a double header on a Saturday. Locations for the Developmental seasons alternate from east to west locations. In the fall games are played at the Simplot Soccer Complex while spring games are played at the Optimist Soccer Complex. Because our membership is made up of players and teams from all over the valley, the Idaho Rush sees the value in alternating game locations so that members have the opportunity to play closer to home.

Parents and Volunteers

All coaches, team managers and assistant referees are parent volunteers. Each team fills those three positions from the team parent pool or finds someone other than a parent to fill the positions. If the team cannot find volunteers to fill the positions, the team will be disbanded with no refunds issued.

Equipment and Uniforms

The uniform consists of a full Capelli kit which includes: blue jersey, white jersey, black shorts and blue socks. The Capelli uniform kit, must be worn at all games.

Soccer shoes should have plastic, aluminum or molded rubber studs. The studs must be no longer than 3/4 inch and should be manufactured and sold as soccer shoes. The studs must not be sharp (no baseball cleats) and shoes with a single stud at the toe (American football cleats or rubber baseball cleats) are not allowed.

Nothing dangerous may be worn during a game. There are no exceptions. This includes, but is not limited to: jewelry, earrings (including pierced), rings, necklaces, bracelets, and wristwatches.

Casts and splints are allowed in the Developmental program at the discretion of the referee.

Goalkeepers must wear a shirt clearly different from any other field players and the referee. They may wear special goalkeeper jerseys, gloves, pants and/or elbow and knee pads.

Additional clothing such as shirts and long pants may not be worn over the uniform in game play. Sweatshirts, sweatpants and gloves may be worn under the uniform in cold weather.

Players should bring a properly inflated ball to every training session and every game. The size of the ball is specific to the player's age group:

U8s: Size 3 ball / U10s: Size 4 ball / U13 and above size 5 ball 

Cleats are required. All players must wear shin guards at all training sessions and games. Players without shin guards will be required to sit out some or all of the training session and all of the game.
