Madison, Wisconsin (May 9, 2019) - Rush Wisconsin is elated to announce an extension satellite program in the Kenosha area.

Rush was first founded in Wisconsin in 2010 when Middleton Yahara Soccer Club joined the Rush partnership group and became Rush Wisconsin. Rush Wisconsin West was founded in 2015 in the La Crosse area.

Ben John, Technical Director for Rush Wisconsin commented,

"This feels like a historic union for us. Kenosha is an important soccer community with outstanding players, committed parents and a great infrastructure of volunteers and soccer organizations that want to see the community grow and players to have access to the best resources in the country and around the world. This extension satelite club is a vehicle to accomplishing that goal. I am especially excited that Vlatko Minic will be overseeing the operations in Kenosha. He is from the area, is a storied coach with a tremendous background in soccer and he is singularly passionate about Kenosha and giving the South East region of Wisconsin the best and most accessible soccer experience possible via Rush."

Tim Schulz, President and CEO of Rush Sports Partners International expressed,

"This is a really exciting addition to the Rush family. I have heard tremendous things about Coach Vlatko Minic and I am confident with the support of Rush Wisconsin and Rush Wisconsin - West, two great clubs who are part of our Rush family, Rush South East Soccer will help usher a new and exciting era of soccer in the State of Wisconsin."

Michael Cocroft, Chicago Rush Executive Director commented, “We are really excited to have Rush Wisconsin SE become a part of the family. With the relationship that Vlatko and I have had over the years, the synergy between our Chicago Rush North location and local select only helps to strengthen our player pool and give more opportunities to players”.

Vlatko Minic, Technical Director/Director of Coaching for Rush Wisconsin South East commented,

"I am honored to have the opportunity to serve the community of Kenosha and the South East Region by providing them with a world class partnership with Rush Soccer. We love our players and our families and this is a proud soccer area with a great history of producing good players and good teams. I am confident that this partnership and my commitment to collaborate with the Boys and Girls Club and the Kenosha Area Soccer League, can bring great things to this area for all our players, families and coaches. I am excited to be part of a great team of people who are all committed to serving the soccer community."
