ANDREW BORG HELPING HAND FUND
Andrew Borg was a soccer dad, raising five sons, all of whom played for Bootleggers Soccer Club (now Northern Colorado Rush). He was a board member and former President for years, as well as a referee and coach. He worked diligently growing soccer in Weld County. Behind the scenes he helped players by covering cost of cleats, club fees, and uniforms. He was instrumental in bringing varsity soccer to District #6. The MVP of the boys West/Central high school game is awarded in his name. He was an avid supporter of Bootleggers and believed soccer was a terrific game that builds character and teaches young people how to persevere and be resilient.
In October of 1992, the soccer community was devastated by his sudden passing. The Greeley Central boys soccer team suggested that a fund at Bootleggers be setup to collect donations in his name and a portion of players fees be set aside in that fund. Today the Borg Helping Hand fund provides financial support to players who might not have an opportunity to participate.
We are proud to offer the Andrew Borg Helping Hand Policy. The sole purpose of this policy is to give every player an opportunity to play the game they love. Since the inception of this club, no player has ever been turned away due to financial issues. Northern Colorado Rush (NorCo Rush) does not receive any outside funding for the competitive league program making the Andrew Borg Helping Hand Fund a cornerstone of our club.
