Ian Barker is the Director of Coaching Education for the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. Ian was my guest on the MySoccerParenting.com monthly webinar where he and I discussed many topics over the course of the hour – one being youth development in the United States. This is a 4 minute clip of the webinar where we are discussing special considerations for youth development in a country as large as the United States. We can’t model our youth development process after other countries because the United States is uniquely so large from a geography and population standpoint.
Enjoy! If you’d like to watch the rest of the webinar, or have access to all the additional information geared towards youth soccer parents, consider a membership to MySoccerParenting.com!
