The CAP Program helped me tremendously. I went to a CAP meeting before one of my practices. I met Bryan Weiss from RCTC and then I talked to him during practice due to my injury so I could do that. And then we talked and then I signed.
It definitely helped me gain some direction and narrow down my options, because I feel like when you’re being recruited for soccer, there’s so many more factors to consider to ensure you have success both on and off the field at the school you choose.
It definitely helped me. Last year during winter break I did a college boot camp class, this gave me the information and the formating to help talk to coaches.
A really great program. It was incredibly reliable as it help me with my goal of reaching the next level.
The connections between club coaches and college coaches really helped as well as having club coaches that have or are college coaches as well and being at that next level. All of the coaches know how to get us up to the next level.
The Rush CAP program helped me to find available and idealistic schools I wanted. My coach guided me through the recruiting process as well through CAP. In our accounts, he would list a couple of schools that he thought were a great fits for us. He also helped me make connections to other coaches who needed potential players in my role.
Rush definitely did help me with committing to a college. The Rush Internal Showcase was extremely helpful with connecting me to coaches. The CAP program was helpful as well when I had to send emails to coaches they had templates. When they had videos we would take notes that were helpful as well.
Josh and this program saved Emma’s interest in the game! The opportunity to play on a team with talented girls from across the nation and at a level to be noticed by college coaches was fantastic. Individual ID camps can be an intimidating experience when you are the only person from your club attending and you quickly see other girls from other clubs forming small groups. The CAP tournaments gave players like Emma an opportunity to get college coach exposure and also a chance to break any preconceptions about ability when joining a team.
