About Ivan Becerra Training
Becerra was drafted in the third round (27th overall) of the 2006 MLS Supplemental Draft by Columbus Crew. Crew head coach Sigi Schmid converted Becerra to a central defender once on the team due to Columbus already having 4 forwards ahead of Becerra on the depth chart. He did not appear in a first-team match with the Crew and was subsequently sent on loan to then-USL Second Division side Cincinnati Kings. He made his professional debut on July 21, 2006. He featured as a starter for Cincinnati and appeared in four games with the Kings, the last being August 13, 2006, before returning to the Crew.
Despite appearing in 6 MLS Reserve League matches for the Crew, he was waived in March 2007 as the team sought to become roster-compliant in preseason.
Becerra signed for Ventura County Fusion of the USL Premier Development League for the 2009 season. He made his debut for the team on May 30, 2009, in a game against Bakersfield Brigade. Becerra would ultimately appear for the Fusion 4 times en route to winning the 2009 PDL Championship and scoring a goal in the championship game.
