This week, The Coaching Journey Podcast is excited to welcome Paul Holocher on the show! Paul is the current Director of Player Development, as well as U16 and U18 Head Coach with the San Jose Earthquakes Academy.
We have a fantastic discussion today looking at youth development in the United States and explore whether or not the professional youth development structure in the U.S. is maximizing its ability to develop pros. We tackle the issue of college soccer vs academy development, and explore the areas in which the youth landscape is improving, and the areas in which it needs to improve.
