Are You a Parent Thinking About Sending Your Soccer Player to Europe? We Can Help.
You may have a son or daughter that want to study and play in Europe with a goal of playing professionally.
We have spent the last five years exploring opportunities for training abroad and how to best position our son to pursue his dream of becoming a professional soccer player.
We know the odds of becoming a professional soccer player are small, but the experiences, education, and life experience is immeasurable. This pursuit of a dream needs to happen while these boys and girls are young enough to have a chance.
We are sharing what we have learned and continue to learn through hundreds of hours of research, interviews, conversations, and travel between America and Europe.
Go Soccer Pro's mission is to save you time by providing information you can trust to help make the best decisions for your family.

How can we send our son to Europe to train and hopefully become a professional soccer player?
That question was the beginning for Go Soccer Pro.
It continues to drive us everyday to learn and share more with families with soccer players looking to play abroad or to play pro.
My husband and I started exploring options for our son 5-years ago when he was 14. At that age his only focus was to improve his game enough so he could play professional soccer.
We expected him to attend college. For him to play professionally, he needed to train and compete against the best players in the world, not wait until he was 22-years-old and graduated college.
The biggest question or concern during our decision-making process: Would he be safe at the academy in the country and with the people in charge?
We knew our son had the drive and commitment to pursue his dream to play pro soccer, but he had never been away from home. We were concerned he would become homesick. Much to our surprise, he quickly acclimated and loved the experience.
If you are experiencing sleepless nights, worrying about sending your player so far away, we totally understand. Sending your child to pursue their dream is harder on the parents than many of these young athletes will understand until they have kids of their own!
It is our hope you find the answers at Go Soccer Pro that you need to make the best decisions for your family.
