WSA to launch Premier Soccer program in Fall 2013
Dear WSA Members,
On behalf of the WSA Board I am pleased to announce the formation and addition of CT Rush Premier to the WSA developmental curriculum. Following my remarks is the press release with details about the program offering.
This new offering comes as the result of a comprehensive review by the WSA Board of our programming in relation to the soccer landscape in Fairfield County. As a town soccer club, it became clear that to continue to thrive we needed to adapt to the regional soccer environment in which we compete. As Premier Soccer continues to expand and move towards the younger age groups, adding a Premier program provides the WSA with a developmental pathway for every Wilton soccer player at every ability level without leaving our club.
As part of our efforts we also identified a target market that is currently underserved and will continue to grow as Premier expands at the younger ages: the muti-sport athlete. Our programming will bring the highest level of soccer development with a balanced approach through-out the year to allow these athletes to thrive in all their sporting endeavors.
CT Rush Premier will be an affiliate of Rush Soccer (www.rushsoccer.com), a tremendous national youth soccer organization with significant infrastructure and resources that our organization and our players will benefit from immediately. I encourage you to review their site to see what our CT Rush Premier will be a part of.
It is important to note that CT Rush Premier will be an additional program offering and will not replace or eliminate any of the existing WSA programs. The WSA will now offer programming for every soccer player in Wilton: TOPSoccer, Intramural (K-2), Warrior, Classic Travel & CT Rush Premier.
Over the next few weeks there will be additional information and communications by email on CT Rush Premier. We will hold in-person informational sessions and will have an active website with information and Q&A. More info will follow.
Please stay tuned and we look forward to delivering CT RUSH Premier Soccer to you as part of our comprehensive soccer programming for your Wilton soccer player.
Yours in Soccer,
