Glen Buckley Soccer

Renowned as one of the major coach and player educators in the U.S., Glen Buckley has grown up around the game and made it his life. He has amassed close to 34 years of experience in the coach education and player development arenas. From his early days in his native England working for his home town club Wigan Athletic, the English Football Association and Lancashire Football Association, he focused his attention and devoted his adult life to further education, gaining his FA “Full Badge” at just 27 years of age. He was selected as one of the first 30 coaches in England to be a Tutor Assessor of the FA, shortly afterward completing his UEFA 'A' license.

Following successful stints as a manager in the semi-pro leagues, he arrived in the United States to take up a role as a Club Director of Coaching in Minneapolis, Minn. Following five years in that role, he was appointed State Director of Coaching for the New York State West Youth Soccer Association, a position he held for 10 years, transforming the state coach education program into one of the most successful in the country. During this period, he successfully acquired the USSF 'A,' 'B,' National Youth License and the NSCAA Premiere Diploma. He has served as both a U.S. Soccer and US Youth Soccer National Staff Instructor and currently serves as an NSCAA instructor.
