About Northern Colorado Rush Soccer

Northern Colorado Rush (NorCo) Soccer is a nonprofit organization that has been in Greeley since 1978. Formerly known as Bootleggers Soccer Club, or Northern Colorado Soccer Club (NCSC), our name change in 2017 and partnership with Rush Soccer – the largest youth soccer club in the world – reflects our new and growing emphasis on recreational, developmental and competitive soccer throughout Northern Colorado. We strive to provide players in the Greeley and surrounding areas with a professional coaching staff, well trained coaches, and competitive leagues to grow in as players.

Our club was originally founded by Ken Humphrey, who at the time was the principal at Maplewood Elementary School. Ken had a deep passion for both soccer and Greeley’s youth. Bootleggers Soccer Club began with 108 elementary school students in 1975 by Ken and a group of volunteers.

Over the years Bootleggers, now Rush Soccer, has had great success. Some former players have even moved on to play in professional soccer leagues all over the world.

When you join NorCo Rush Soccer Club, you’re joining a global network of over 110 clubs. Rush is committed to helping your player succeed on and off the field.
