How do you become a professional Soccer Player?
Most of the answers I’ve seen don’t really provide any action steps and I get the sense that most players are a little discouraged in trying to get started.
If you aren’t in a professional academy or a top player in your area it can be complicated trying to break into the market. You most likely have no idea where to start. On top of that, the simple avenues available to you could be expensive and even a complete waste of your time.
So with that in mind I’d like to offer up a few guidelines that should save you some time and money.
We suggest that you try a open try out.
Because you ‘ll be competing with up to 200 other players for the attention of 3 coaches. If you stand out, great, if not, forget about your registration fee, food, travel and hotel money; that’s all gone now. By the way your registration fee can be anywhere from $150 to $1,000. I could go on and on about the way that these are set up just to make money. But I don’t want to discourage anyone from going if you have the means to do so. Players have earned contracts doing this. It is DEFINITELY possible. However, the odds are stacked against you.
But why do you want to become a professional Soccer player?
If you are in it for the money we suggest that you dont do it, Soccer is all about passion and if you dont have passion for the game you are playing we can allmost garantuee you that you wont become a professional Soccer player. It takes allot of times and we have seen a study where it takes around 10 000 hours to become the best on something. Do you have 10 000 hours that you want to spare to become a Soccer pro? If you have that go for it, if not choose another line of life style.
