Sounders, Washington Youth Soccer lent support, so why did U.S. Soccer nix Byer’s youth pilot program?

Tom Byer, known for instilling technical skills among youth, had the plug pulled on his U.S. Soccer pilot program before it even got off the ground. He explains his side of the story on the Planet Fútbol Podcast.

Byer was asked on the podcast whether it’s accurate to say that he felt like he had support from Gulati, the Sounders and the state association, but he didn’t feel like he had support from U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn and the federation’s coaches education group.

“Yeah,” he says. “That’s pretty accurate. That’s how I see it.”
