What Is Reach

Rush Equipment Assisting Children

reach_logo_2016

Established in 2002, REACH (RushEquipmentAssistingChildren) 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!

About Reach

ABOUT REACH

Reach Day

What is REACH? Rush Equipment Assisting Children, The REACH Program, was established in 2002 as a humanitarian effort within Rush Soccer. Players donate back their used soccer gear and equipment and then donate their time to help sort, package and ship gear to less fortunate children around the globe.

To date REACH has collected & distributed over 100,000 pieces of soccer In Rush Nation we answer the question “What is REACH?” with the reply “REACH is YOU!” Player by player, team by team, club by club we COLLECTIVELY and COLLABORATIVELY amount to SOMETHING so much LARGER than we could ever be on our own. AND WE SEE THAT IT MATTERS! At Rush Soccer we believe by instilling our Core Values and allowing our players the opportunity to participate in REACH we are developing lifelong responsible citizens of the world. 

Uniform Rebate:

The Rebate Program provides a $20 rebate per old Rush uniform kit donated to the REACH Program when a new competitve kit is ordered.  Because the Rebate program is intended to support REACH outfitting teams to play, both the home and away competitive game jerseys and 1 pair of game shorts are required to receive the rebate.  The rebate can either go back to the player donating or the player can choose to donate their $20 rebate back to their local club.

This program is coordinated at the local level by a REACH Volunteer Coordinator (RVC) who works directly with the Rush Global OutREACH Director.  Players and parents alike are needed to assist in the collecting, sorting and packing of the gear. Players who help are considered OutREACH Players and their volunteer service makes them eligible to take part in OutREACH Trips and apply for the REACH College Scholarship.

Most clubs hold the Uniform Collection as part of an overall REACH donation drive either annually or every other year as new kits are ordered.  Ask your local club to learn when you can give back to REACH or become a volunteer for this great program!
