Buford Mobley of ‘The Soccer Parent Lifestyle” is our guest this week on Cal South’s “The Bear & the Ball” podcast

Buford Mobley is your typical soccer dad. He didn’t know too much about the game but he knew his son loved soccer and so he jumped in with both feet.

The journey he and his son went on was fascinating and involved many lessons, good and bad, that he now shares on his monthly magazine, “The Soccer Parent Lifestyle”.

On this episode of “The Bear & the Ball,” learn from Buford as he highlights some of the mistakes that parents often make without even realizing it.


Buford Mobley is the founder of The Soccer Parent Lifestyle, a youth soccer media company that educates, informs, and entertains soccer parents.

He’s no soccer guru. He’s just a Soccer Dad who’s developed a deep love of the “beautiful game” over these last 17 or so years. He has created two soccer communities with over fifty thousand soccer parents from every nook and cranny of the United States.

The soccer world has given him the opportunity to learn from coaches from U4 to the professional ranks, players from youth to pro, and most importantly, soccer parents of players at all levels.

He is the author of two books on youth soccer. In addition, he is the publisher of Soccer Parent Lifestyle Magazine, the #1 digital magazine in youth soccer.
