Baton Rouge Soccer is excited to announce the hiring of former professional player Scott Buete to its coaching staff for the 2012/2013 season. Scott comes to BRSC after playing the last 10 years as a professional soccer player. He was the number one draft pick of the MLS Chicago Fire (#9 overall) and has starred with several other organizations since that time.
Scott Buete, the younger brother of BRSC Executive Director Gary Buete, was a two-time all American and team captain at University of Maryland where he led his team to two straight final four appearances. In his playing tenure, Scott has played in the prestigious Maguire Cup (u19 national championship) as a youth player, College final four, US Open Cup Finals, USISL A League Championship game and led the Baltimore Blast indoor team to the league championship. Scott has been coaching at several levels during his playing days. Most recently, he has been working with the academy program of the #1 ranked youth soccer club in the country, the Baltimore Bays.
Scott will be the Director of the new BRSC Academy program for players U7-U9. The BRSC Academy program is a bridge to competitive soccer. Its goal is to provide its players the technical, tactical, physical and psychological tools to play and succeed at the competitive level. The BRSC Academy is committed to bringing more technical expertise into the U7, U8, and U9 programs by creating a curriculum of instruction specific to developmental needs at each age group level. The BRSC Academy curriculum follows a progressive model based on key developmental needs that have been identified for each age group. The BRSC Academy trains in age-appropriate training pools throughout the week. However, teams will still compete in local BRSA leagues.
“I am excited about this new phase of my soccer life. I have spent the last 15 years playing at the highest level I could. I look forward to passing along the knowledge I have acquired along the way to all of the soccer players in Baton Rouge,” said Scott, new BRSC Academy Director.
