    Play for several hours a day WITH PEOPLE as well as practicing by yourself and build your leg muscles with strength training until they are ripped and stretch alot because if you dont it will limit your strength and may pull muscles as well. You dont pull muscles easily now, but its a different story when you’re older in your 20’s.

    Dont hold stretches for longer than 3-4 seconds so you dont cause scar tissue. You can stretch a lot but take 1 second break in between those 3 second stretches. Then get good grades and get in a good uni.

    To be pro you wil literally have to spend almost every waking hour playing or training, when not doing homework. Dont worry if you think your missing out on hanging out with friends, etc., you more than make up for it if you become pro.

    I don’t know much about the USA but in England you would hope to be seen by a scout and get invited to a professional teams academy for trials. If you perform well they may accept you into their academy.
    When i grew up in England there was no such thing as signing for a team and expecting to play. You had to prove yourself or you sat on the bench.

    Sorry to break it to ya, but at your age you shouldn’t even be playing recreational soccer anymore. I say that because most players tries out and starts playing on league teams such as traveling and club at around the age of 8. At that age, they have what you call ‘academy, classic, and challenge’ levels to differentiate what level each team plays at. They also have what you call- play by your age- teams such as U-10, U-11, U-12, U-13, U-14 and so on. You play perspectively and accordingly to how old you are.

    I’m going to be up front with you right now and say that you need to practice hard and find an opening try-out date for your local traveling and/or club teams and attend those try-outs when they’re opened for try-outs. It’s opened to anyone who wants to see if they have what it takes to play for those particular teams. The staff/coaches selects who they want and do not want. That is why you have to practice hard if you want to make it.

    Now getting spotted or noticed by professional clubs is a whole different story here. For now be more concerned about making it on a club team. That’s where your professional soccer career will be more than likely take off if you are an outstanding soccer player. Scouts will take noticed whether you want them to or not.

    Good luck.

    I would start to videotape your Soccer games and make a compilation video of yourself. Show off your best skills and attributes then send that video (with a short letter requesting a trial) to as many clubs as possible. Search for the clubs “Head of Development” or “Scouting and Recruiting”. You can do this with a simple Google search. ?

    Stick with it . You may not find success right away but you cannot get frustrated. It may take 100 No’s before you get 1 yes. But that 1 yes will be more than worth it. Next you must be certain you are at the top of your game when you do finally get the trial. ??Most importantly you need to be working to become a better Soccer player each and every single day. If you think you’re “good enough” you’re wrong. Make a commitment to improve in some way every day and you will be on the road to Soccer success.

    If you want to become better you should be looking to improve all areas of your game not just a select few: Technical Skill, Physical Fitness, Mental Toughness, and Tactical Understanding.

    First of all you need to start training on your own – work to improve the basic ball skills, dribbling, shooting, passing, and ball control. Example: Dribble a ball around the house, practice your passing and shooting on a wall for 10 minutes a day.

    Work to improve your fitness: strength, power, speed, acceleration, endurance, and flexibility. Example: every second day do 50 push ups, 100 squats, and 50 sit ups …. go for a run every morning, gradually increasing your speed each time.

    Next you need to always give your best effort on the field. Remember you only have one chance to play that game so leave it all out there. Make a promise to yourself to be the hardest working player on the field, every time you step on the field.

    You should also start watching professional Soccer at least 1 game per week, you can learn so much from pros. Don’t just watch the ball, watch specific players and watch what they do both on and off the ball.

    If you’re really serious about seeing those improvements your talking about pick up my Free Training Guide and complete the Beginner training program at the end of the book. I promise if you stick to it and give your best effort each day you will see changes in your game. You can get that Free Training Guide as well as weekly tips and updates by filling out the form on the right side bar of my website, I will post the link in the resource box.

    ??I want you to write back after you have completed the program and tell me about your improvements. Best of luck and keep me posted on your progress.
