what parents say
CRUSH has been such a great experience for our family! The quality of the coaching is outstanding and all players are given the opportunity to succeed. CRUSH teams play a dynamic, smart, team-focused style of soccer that is so much fun for the players. And, just as importantly, the emphasis on personal growth is remarkable—it’s been such a pleasure to watch the kids flourish as players and people.

Our son’s time with the Crush has been a fantastic experience. The coaches did a great job of boosting his confidence while giving him the feedback he needed to grow as a player. Maybe what I appreciated the most was the focus on sportsmanship throughout the entire organization – I can’t overstate that enough.

Crush has provided our children with such a positive, welcoming atmosphere. The lessons learned go beyond the field: the value of hard work, a positive attitude, and teamwork are all emphasized. Our children are building fundamental soccer skills in a positive atmosphere, with great coaches and teammates. We have felt welcomed by the families, coaches, and kids, from Orange Rovers on up–we’re proud to be a Crush family!

The Crush experience has helped our children grow not only in the technical sport but also as young people. The focus on teamwork and sportsmanship, of being resilient and persevering through tough challenges, has really helped our children mature and grow, building character and compassion towards not only others but also themselves. The results of this can be seen both in their game play and also in our regular lives. We are grateful to Crush for their whole-child approach to sport and we’re proud to be part of the Crush family.

When you join a Crush team, you join the Crush Family! We are always amazed that Piotr and Jennifer know every single player by name! We have had two of our children play with the club and have enjoyed every moment of it!

Our family has been a part of Crush for 7 years and counting with 4 kids participating in the travel program and our 6 year old in the Future stars/mighty strikers program. It continues to be a great experience for our entire family! Crush has helped our kids to love the game of soccer, grow in responsibility, and learn to compete with integrity in a very positive environment.

Several years ago my daughter was caught up in the birth-year rule change. She lost her team, she lost her club, and she was devastated, but she did not want to lose soccer, too. I contacted Crush to see if there was any chance they had a team for her, given that tryouts had finished, and we were told they had a spot they would hold for her, that we should come to one of the summer evening sessions and see if it was a good fit. Three years later we are both so grateful for the way things turned out, I cannot imagine her experience being better anywhere else!

Crush has been a great addition to our family. With practice times and locations making it possible to have three kids playing while still having an active involvement in school, church, family and also other activities. The access to optional soccer instruction and the support of ALL the coaches in the club has been a great bonus. It gives my kids great support and confidence knowing all the coaches and more importantly that all the coaches know them.
