Getting a Soccer Tryout Without A CV: Is it Possible?
by Vangel Papas
Hello i want to ask ..what if a player doesn't have a CV and he plays for his local team can he get a try out for a professional team without it ??
Vangel, thank you for asking a question that I'm sure many other aspiring pro's like yourself are wondering the answer to.
I'm telling you from my experiences playing professionally and getting an agent the best route that majority of pro's take.
Having a quality portfolio with your CV, Highlight tape, Full Game footage etc will get you the best chance possible to play professionally.
I'm not saying it is the only way or that players haven't done it another way but this is the way I've done it and several other teammates of mine have done to get onto a pro team.
Yes you can get to the pro ranks without a CV, you can also drive a car with your feet but that doens't mean it's a good idea. To give yoursel the best opporunity I would create all the things I've reccommended at my Profesional Soccer Tryouts Page and associated pages below:

There are other ways to get a trial without having the portfolio and contacting an agent but they largely depend on good fortune and being at the right place at the right time. I've always been a believer of if you want something you go and get it, don't wait for it to fall in your lap.
They may include:
-Having a connection with a pro club through a friend, family member etc.
-Go and play in the 5th division with some team and work your way up, that's not officially professional but another way to do it.
-Have a scout of a team see you play and want to fly you over and play with his club. (very unlikely considering all the talented players in Europe).
Vangel, if you are truly committed to playing professionally and preparing properly for that level then you are going to have a fitness level like the pro's. This 6 Week PRO Training Program is the top of the line training program for aspiring pro's like yourself.
Hope you get an idea of what I mean.
Good luck and all the best on your journey there.
