Eric Bucchere is a creating a new pathway for players that are seeking professional opportunities in American soccer.
He’s navigated our broken system himself as a college player at UC Santa Cruz and later on as a coach at Menlo College, Burlingame Dragons, and eventually as an assistant coach with USL’s Reno 1868 FC. Eric’s journey has provided him with plenty of experience and knowledge that he is now sharing with players that are starting their own journeys.
His company, Path2Pro, provides opportunities for players that have been flying under the radar and puts them right in front of coaches and scouts that otherwise wouldn’t even know they existed.
During this conversation, Eric opened up about what it’s like to go through the day to day grind as a professional coach in the lower divisions of American soccer. He sheds some light on lower division player contracts, the absence of a lower division players union and CBA, and much more information that every American soccer player, parent, coach, and fan should know.
The funny part is that we didn’t plan on talking about those topics. We actually planned to talk about session planning, but this is what we ended up with.
This is a rare opportunity to hear from someone who’s been on the inside and I couldn’t be more thankful for Eric coming on and sharing his honest opinions.
