About Being an American Going on Professional Soccer Tryouts in Europe
USA/American soccer players are unique. We grow up with many other major sports available to us and soccer is relatively new to the United States, so there are some special things American’s need to know and do in order to prepare.
All of our players have either signed contracts or received offers to play, but the consensus has been that there is a steep learning curve when transitioning from American soccer to professional soccer in Europe and all of the players needed a pre-season, pre-tryout training camp to prepare them for the higher level of soccer in Europe so they can be at the same level as their European competition when they arrive and not need to play “catch-up”, ride the bench, or get injured due to lack of fitness or lack of preparation.
Along with Jordan Older’s own 20 years of experience playing, trying out, and training with some of the top clubs in Europe, Brazil, and the USA, it has been a two decade long learning experience to find out what works and what doesn’t work in order for an American player to easily and successfully transition to professional soccer overseas.
Luckily for you we have spent the last 20-30 years traveling all over world. All of the hard work and experimentation has been done for you. We know what works and what doesn’t work. We know what you will have to do in order to perform at your best to make your dreams come true. And we have the connections you need.
Don’t repeat the same mistakes we did. Take this golden opportunity to learn from our mistakes and let us guide you. Let us pass on the information to you and get you where you deserve to be.
