How to become a professional goalkeeper

Updated on August 3, 2012

Do you want to become a professional Goalkeeper?

Most goalkeeping youngsters dream of becoming the next Joe Hart, Brad Friedel or Shay Given and to grace the soccer stadiums in front of thousands and thousands of screaming supports.

How do I know?

Because I was one of these youngsters who dreamt this dream EVERYDAY!!

Fortunately for me, I achieved this dream and became a professional soccer player (Goalkeeper) for ten seasons. However becoming a professional soccer player is not as easy as people think!

It took me FOUR years of consistently contacting professional soccer organisations, using EVERY correspondence I could think off before I got my chance.

Eventually I achieved my dream signing for Everton Football Club who are one of the biggest soccer clubs in the world. And the result: I was able to live my dream of playing in front of thousands of people every week over a ten-year period.

However for 99% of young hopefuls, they will unfortunately never realise this dream because they make the mistake and WAIT for the soccer clubs to contact them, rather than APPROACHING soccer clubs to sell their skills and talents.

You must sell yourself!

Now if you are a parent or player who think the only way to get picked by a professional soccer club, is to be scouted while playing for your local team, well I am afraid to say that you are very much mistaken.

Do not get me wrong, this CAN happen. But generally it is only the chosen few who get scouted while playing for their local team. For the majority of professional soccer players, they had to work incredibly hard to be even noticed by soccer clubs

And this means, contacting soccer clubs ASKING them to assess you.

Unfortunately most players wait for their chosen professional club to approach them.

For these guys, the chances of becoming a professional soccer player are very slim!

So do you get my point?

Do not wait for soccer clubs to approach you, you approach them!

As a youngster, it took me about four years to figure out the ways into professional soccer clubs before I achieved my dream. And since coming out of professional soccer I have coached over 5000 students in my own coaching business (, and the most common question I get asked is.

'How do I (my child) become a professional footballer or soccer player?

I know what I am talking about here!

And over the past eleven years running my Just4keepers Goalkeeper schools, I have been more successful than any another independent similar soccer organisation Internationally, getting my students trials with professional soccer clubs.

So now I'm sharing my secrets that helped me achieve my dream of becoming a professional soccer player, and that has helped literally hundreds of my students get trials at professional soccer clubs in this 'How To' guide of becoming a professional soccer player.

In this guide, you will be taught EVERY technique I used (and more!) to open doors at professional soccer clubs. You will learn not only how to open doors at soccer clubs but secrets to get you ahead of the other million plus players your age, also tying to achieve this dream!!!
