Emerging Coach Program Launches

The Rush Female Coaches Alliance (RFCA) is proud to share the launch of the Emerging Coach Program at Rush Wisconsin, an initiative targeted at high school aged female soccer players in the club with the goal of developing the next generation of female coaches.

RFCA Leadership Council member and Rush Wisconsin Director of Youth Coaching Jess Nash spearheaded the program effort after attending the Wisconsin Women’s Soccer Advisory Council (WWSAC) Symposium last December.

The six-month program targets high school aged girls playing for Rush Wisconsin who show potential to coach soccer.

Nash spoke to the importance of a program like this to up the number of women coaching soccer, “There are a lot of causes for this, but one major factor is that it is hard to be what you don't see. One way to combat this is to personally encourage female athletes to coach after their playing careers, mentor, and encourage coaching licensing early on, as many don't see it as an option.”

The players selected for the Emerging Coach Program will receive mentorship from a Rush Wisconsin staff coach, leadership opportunities through coaching assignments, and the opportunity to attend the WWSAC Symposium.

The Rush Wisconsin program serves as a template for other Rush clubs and RFCA is taking an active role in promoting and implementing Emerging Coach Programs at additional Rush clubs in 2019.
