Rush Soccer ads Show Me club with merger in Missouri
Rush Soccer has expanded its growing national network again with the addition of Missouri Rush. The “Show Me” state merger of Bino SC and Avalon SC brings together two established clubs in St. Charles, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis. According to news released on the Rush website, the two have been in discussions for sometime now with the intent of merging.
Quoted in the same story on rushsoccer.com, Technical Director of Bino SC, Tim Amlong said, “I am excited about becoming Missouri Rush. With what Bino’s SC has in place now, as far as training and competitive teams, it was important for me to take the next step for the kids to get the best experience out of soccer that they could. I feel like Avalon SC help us get there with the structure side of things and the combining of the two clubs together to form more competitive teams with bigger numbers. After looking into the RUSH Soccer Program it was a no brainer for me, All the resources that Rush has to offer the kids, the coaches, the parents, and the soccer community here in St. Louis made me think there was no other place to go or be. I look forward to being part of the RUSH family for many many years.”
Founded in 2004, Bino SC brings 13 current teams to the merger, which added to the Avalon SC’s 25 years of history and 28 current teams make the merged club a substantial presence in the tradition-rich St. Louis youth soccer landscape.
Avalon SC President, Nik Bushell said in the same story, “Personally, I’m extremely excited about the opportunities that we will be able to offer our players and teams by the synergies of both our coming together with Bino’s SC and our joining of Rush Soccer Club. The Rush Way works well with our current structure of a club run by its coaches and with the additional tools and opportunites that Rush brings along with the training structure of Bino’s, we will look to become one of the best clubs in the area.”
The addition of Missouri Rush brings to 46 the number of licensing and services agreements under the Rush Soccer banner – 28 in the United States and 18 internationally.
