WINSTON-SALEM, North Carolina, Sunday, September 5, 2021: Northeast Rush is excited to bring Triad Elite Soccer Club into our Rush Family as our first North Carolina member. This is a great opportunity for our organization to be working with the Triad Elite Management and coaching staff. Triad Elite has set very high standards for the Triad area players, and we look forward to working with this extraordinary club.
“We are excited to bring Triad Elite into our Rush Family as our first North Carolina branch, said Danielle Athanasiadis, Northeast Rush President. “This is a great opportunity for our organization to be working with individuals who have set strong routes in the Triad area and what they bring to the young players of today is exciting. We are looking forward to seeing what is to come and what we can grow with Stef, Kacy, and Pete.”.
Triad Elite Soccer Club was originally formed in 1997 as a 501C3 club in NC called Team Alliance Soccer Club. It changed names in 2010 to Triad Elite Soccer Club. It is based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, and serves players in the greater Triad area of North Carolina which includes Winston-Salem, Greensboro, and High Point. Its current membership is approximately 400 players. In the past 5 years, it has had specifically two teams that have advanced through State and Regional Championships to USYS Nationals. Our team in 2021 won the National Championships in Iowa. Many of these players are now attending colleges as the first members of their families.
Stef Hamilton, who has served as President since 2010, says “Our philosophy is to provide a great environment whereby kids can have fun while still developing into the players they want to be. We work hard to provide soccer-playing opportunities for all kids who want to play, and we focus on having coaches whose number one priority is to help the players achieve their goals. We are excited about partnering with Rush Soccer and the ability to offer our players and families the vast resources available in the Rush System. Since the news about our Rush affiliation has gotten out, we have received lots of interest from our community, and we look forward to offering this opportunity to a growing number of players and families.”
Northeast Rush is thrilled to welcome Stef Hamilton, Pete Polonsky, Kacy Charlton, and all members of the Triad Elite Soccer Club to the Rush family. Please join us in welcoming them to the organization.
