Rush Soccer Partners with Hudl to Add New Technology

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.”
