We are a mentorship agency bridging the gap for talented soccer players between the United States and Europe.
Our mission rests not only with the individuals of our program; a large portion of company profits are also set aside for social impact projects in less fortunate communities globally.
GLOBALTEAM SPORTS was founded in 2018 to create a mentorship program for talented Scandinavian soccer players to fully realize their potential in a dual student-athlete environment overseas.
While many established competitors offer the general U.S. college experience, the GTS Team quickly realized there were no agencies providing a full-service program throughout the whole experience abroad - before, during and after the fact.
As international student-athletes ourselves, there were plenty of aspects we were not prepared for upon arrival. We realized the school system, soccer and culture could all vary a lot from back home. The service missing was a more personal mentorship: someone who stays on with the player throughout all the years overseas, not just finds a suitable school and ships the individual aboard, moving onto the next talent.
With experiences from the professional soccer environment in Europe and studying at college in the United States, our team has lived and learned what we’re now passing onto the next generation.
Since our college years, we have been immensely involved in U.S. youth soccer, to improve and develop players at a grassroots level. We quickly realized U.S. youth players would benefit greatly from getting the chance to experience the European soccer culture in order to further develop as players and human beings. Therefore, we developed programs for U.S.-based individuals and teams to get acquainted with the European football scene, first-hand.
Meanwhile, our mission rests not only with the individuals of our various programs; a large portion of company profits are also set aside for social impact projects in less fortunate communities globally.
Ultimately, the GTS foundation is split into three equally important categories, yet all derive from the same principles: cross-border connection, experiential learning, and - of course - our shared love for soccer.
COLLEGE IN THE UNITED STATES
Some view college as the ultimate way to keep developing as a soccer player; others see it as a chance to continue playing while earning a high-level degree. No matter what your intentions are, college in the United States is definitely a unique opportunity to combine soccer, school and adventure.
We assist you from the very day that first little spark of interest for college is born. Not only do we focus on teaching you what college in the United States can provide for you; we make sure to build a personal and unique profile to maximize your chances of receiving a scholarship at a competitive school that matches your wants and needs. Once the journey is underway, we act as a ”ball plank” throughout your years at college. And as graduation nears, we will assist you in creating a pathway post-studies - no matter where in the world that may take you.
ABROAD PLAYING EXPERIENCES
We offer opportunities to teams or individual players from the United States to experience the the European soccer culture in order to take their game to the next level. Competing in a professional youth environment overseas - to measure the differences and qualities compared to your team at home - is an invaluable experience to your continued soccer education.
We take care of trip itineraries, tournament logistics or trial opportunities with clubs and academies in Europe for you to get the most out of your time abroad.
