NM Rush - Southwest


New Mexico Rush Soccer Club has recently partnered with over a dozen El Paso area youth soccer teams and coaches to form New Mexico Rush – Southwest.  NM Rush Soccer Club's partnership agreement with Rush Soccer (SPI) governs the Albuquerque based youth soccer club "to work in and around the state of New Mexico."  According to New Mexico Rush President, Greg Heileman, “The partnership between the New Mexico Rush and NM Rush - El Paso will first and foremost expand the Rush Brand and player development philosophy down the I-25 / I-10 corridor into the greater southern area of New Mexico.”  

Patrick Tapia will act as Dir. of Soccer Operations for NM Rush – Southwest.  Long time El Paso area youth soccer coach Michael Griego will act as Director of Coaching for NM Rush – Southwest.  Coach Griego is a former college soccer standout at UNLV and professional teammate, of current NM Rush Technical Director, Justin Sells. The two played together with the El Paso Patriots of the USL A –League during the 1999 USL season.  All NM Rush – Southwest teams will be registered directly with New Mexico Rush Soccer Club through US Club Soccer starting immediately through the summer of 2014.
