About GFT & this site
Hi! My name is Jeremie Piette. I am a former professional soccer player & the founder and owner of Global Fútbol Training. I am also the creator of the original soccer training method that has helped hundreds of players advance their games to new levels, including college & the pros.
I started GFT out of a passion to see players improve quickly & in a short amount of time. While coaching soccer players from around the U.S. at Stanford University soccer camps, I saw that it was this rapid development – & not coaching – that motivated me the most.
Now, I often joke that I am a player development psychologist because I am ‘fluent’ in soccer mechanics & player development. I have spent the last 8 years immersed in technical training and player improvement, learning what does and does not work & WHY – the psychology & the mechanics behind it. I’ve been called ‘The Soccer Mechanic” by other trainers & pros because of the knowledge I’ve gained through my experiences as a collegiate athlete, a pro, & the professionals I’ve been fortunate to learn from. But, most importantly, it’s because other players, trainers & pros see the benefit of my experience. Global Fútbol Training is my ONLY job – & has been since 2008. During that time, my trainers & I have trained thousands of soccer players and I’ve seen this method prove itself time again.
No two players or playing styles are alike & over 95% of the players we train are Select Level or higher. This means that my training MUST remain fresh while continually incorporating the key elements that make players great. When used with consistency, these methods create an incredible platform for taking your game to the Next Level.
