As a former professional soccer player, collegiate standout & graduate and founder of the Elite Sports Business Academy (ESBA), Jeremie has established himself as an expert in the fields of youth sports & collegiate / pro soccer preparation. In addition to personally training over 200 elite players per month with year-round soccer skills & training through Global Fútbol Training (GFT), Jeremie consults with professional, elite high school & collegiate athletes from around the country.
Welcome to Global Fútbol Training (aka GFT or GFTskills)! I’m Jeremie, former professional soccer player & founder of GFT. If you’re not quite sure what GFT is about, it’s all about player development! Soccer Skills & Player Development: Psych, Elite, Club, College, Pro, Health, Nutrition, Game Maturity, Brand Maturity & Awareness & more! (Okay – & we’re also about players looking good while they do it!).
- GFTskills.com is ranked as a top 20 soccer blog in the world
- Our readers typically fall into 1 of 4 categories: PLAYER, PARENT, TRAINER / COACH or PRO
- GFT was founded (unofficially) in 2007 & became official in 2008.
- My mission is to raise the level of soccer play in the youth while growing their character, drive & global sense of soccer, other cultures & people in general.
GFT has 7 primary areas of operation:
Ball Control Courses: The main reason GFT has grown so fast is that my secret sauce, my training methods that have been refined over 10+ years, REALLY PRODUCES RESULTS FAST! This is the exact method I’ve used to help hundreds of athletes play college, a few play pro & still surprise my pro clients with what they need to know to improve their game ASAP!
College Scholarships: Over 200 players & counting know that college is not just about the skill – it’s also about the system & the knowledge. Parents love this easy-to-follow system & players aren’t surprised at what’s expected at the college level, whether it’s your BRAND or your PLAY. The college course also includes how to create a HIGHLIGHT VIDEO.
Equipment that matters: So many soccer players, parents, coaches & trainers spend money on the WRONG THINGS. Spend money on the gear that matters, will help you improve your game & keeps your costs down. When you need to know where to focus your game, good equipment (just a few key pieces) matter.
Injury prevention & care: Today’s athletes are more stressed than they’ve ever been. Psychologically, emotionally & physically – all these areas combine to overwhelm instead of strengthen. I am a big believe in non-toxic, healthy environment care that does not rely on medication for the symptoms. Holistic care is huge. That’s why I recommend these essential oils & this kit.
Cool Gear: Okay – this one is not essential – if you don’t like cool gear. Over the years, we’ve perfected a few sayings among the GFT’ers that many demanded go on a shirt. So our swag has swag…& we like it that way. Prices range from $20 – $50 on average & aren’t limited to t-shirts but we’ve got hoodies, bags & more!
Coaches & Parents: Often these two groups ask for guidance by age & stage of development. Check out the cool bundles we offer, including dealing with injuries, getting pre-season fit in only 21 days & understanding the developmental pathways for soccer players. Each is bundled specifically for parents or coaches / trainers.
Franchising & Jobs: Franchising is not my style – but I do teach how to start your own sports-based company in my Elite Sports Business Academy. Many former professional colleagues & teammates as well as athletes from other sports have been through this program since 2011 & now it’s offered online. Job opportunities for trainers, tech, marketing, etc. vary but applications are always welcome.
If you’d follow us on social media, I would be most grateful! @GFTskills
