Here’s how Rush Soccer plans to use video analysis to increase their focus on player development.

Rush Soccer has made Hudl their preferred video solution for all of its 85 clubs. With 32,000 athletes on 3,000 teams, this soccer club is one of the largest in the world.

Arian Hoxha, director of operations at Rush, sees Hudl as the perfect tool to develop and track top talent, with an ultimate goal of sending players to roster the professional-level team Penn FC. Rush Soccer was the first club to form a professional branch, reverse-engineering the path between the youth and elite levels. Hudl will help set this pathway in stone.

“Adding Hudl to all our other assets will enhance the current scouting and player identification system we currently use,” Hoxha said. “Hudl will help advance our vision of producing as many homegrown players for the professional level as possible.”

All Rush coaches who sign on with Hudl will be sent exclusive content designed to teach them how to manage their accounts. This will cover the fundamentals of video, plus best practices for making the most of Hudl’s suite of tools.

“As two leaders in soccer, we have a shared focus on player development, coach education and building pathways to the next level,” said Tony Linder, U.S. soccer sales manager at Hudl. “Every level of the company is excited about this partnership. We admire their philosophy and core values, and the unprecedented experience they give to coaches and athletes all over the country.”

Rush already provides a comprehensive club development curriculum as part of their overarching philosophy of excellence, known as “The Rush Way”. CEO Tim Schulz knows adding Hudl to Rush’s offerings will give both coaches and athletes a better club experience.

“This Hudl and Rush partnership will be one of a kind,” Schulz said. “Rush understands the need for video analysis for our players and we are excited to help provide this service for them. We are all looking forward to the benefits of aligning with a company like Hudl.”
