Jr. Academy Youth Soccer Program

Jr. Kickers and Michigan Rush Jr. Academy have merged! The Michigan Rush Lansing Jr. Academy is an instructional soccer program designed to develop the individual skills of our youngest players and give them a great start in growing this sport. The Jr. Academy helps players enjoy the game of soccer in a fun and developmentally appropriate environment to enhance their motor skills, fundamental ball skills, and concepts of small sided games.

Rush Lansing Jr. Winter Academy

  • Junior Academy is a program that Rush offers for ages 4-8 years old that are beginning to learn the game of soccer. The program is designed to create a learning environment that is not only educational but also fun and enjoyable.
  • Sessions are created with different types of game activities that have a specific topic the players work to master each week. The players will scrimmage or play games at the end of each session to reinforce the topic in a game environment.
  • All sessions and games are overseen by a licensed coach.  The goal is to give each player the opportunity to build their soccer skills in a controlled environment that makes learning fun.  This approach to developing younger players has proven successful and is a great way for beginning players to be introduced to the beautiful game of soccer.
