How To Play At The Next Level

  • 8 Jun, 2016

Are a player or student-athletes who dreams to play at the next level? Well, I just want you to remember one thing:

Find your passion because it takes a lot of hard work, dedication, persistence and a constant burn of doing better every time when you compete against yourself.

Sports have become so competitive that players need to constantly be creative and look for new ways to expose themselves. That last thing a player wants to do is to lose their talent in the shadow of empty hopes. As time goes by, years from now you will wonder yourself why haven’t you done a little more extra. Well, this is the time to start focusing on what you want to accomplish.

I personally played soccer at the club level, high school level, junior college and college level. Some of the best memories have come from my soccer journey. Every time the level was getting higher, so do the expectations. I had to constantly promote myself, work hard and try to make a good impression on and off the field.

My goal is not to discourage you and tell you that you can’t play at the next level. My goal is to really educate you on the process and make you fully aware of what it really takes to play at the next level. In the video below we have outlined there steps to better help you play at the next level. I want you to be successful and know what it takes to play at the college level. Promoting yourself constantly, connecting with coaches while sharing your sports profile can bring you closer to your next sports destination.


I truly hope you enjoyed the video and now you know how to better prepare yourself. Find your passion and follow your dreams even when no one believes in you. You and your time is all you got. Just show people around you that you can do it.
