There is one thing on the minds of all players in the Premier Development League – going pro. Known as the 4th division in the US soccer pyramid, the PDL has provided roughly 60% of the players in the MLS. Going Pro: American Soccer takes you into the locker room and onto the field with the Brooklyn Knights during their PDL season. Witness the power of a dream, and the sacrifices required to fulfill it as we follow the players on and off the field in this intimate sports documentary.

  1. “Beat your own battles on the pitch” is a must with football/soccer. In the UK that is number 1 way on winning football games. I play Centre Mid, where if you don’t win your battles you will lose the game. Simple as

  2. My advice to any American wanting to be a professional player – Go to Europe, Asia or even Africa to chase your dream. Make sure you have some money but if you want to make it stay away from the so called American leagues.

  3. This "coach's" abhorrent behavior really pissed me off. Repeating yelling "You fuckin' kidding me?!?" and berating your players because you are frustrated because you're losing a game because you are shitty coach, is NOT coaching. This guy should be banned from coaching soccer for life and I have zero idea why a university hired him as a head coach in 2017. Because he notched some winning seasons in D2? This guy wonders why the team has a bad attitude – wow, clueless.

  4. This documentary really pictured most of what I passed through while playing soccer at a point I gave it up and started playing the saxophone to earn a living it took another coach time to discover what I could do on the field and he made me part of his team he encouraged me to the point that I had to start training myself to get back to my normal level of playing.

  5. Coaching from a young age is dreadful here in the states. A 20 something saying "I'm 1000 juggles a day and it is not enough" my 10 year old has been doing 1000 juggles a day since 7 years old. I know plenty of kids that have been doing 1000 + juggles since 5.

  6. This coach is so bad, like how, he literally outs players while talking with the whole team, that ruins the team, if you want to criticize a single player you need to do it with them individually

  7. Unfortunately, the MLS, like other pro sports in the US, place enormous emphasis on the university system; they rely heavily on the draft. This is the measure by which the leagues determine a player's worthiness to make the type of money associated with being a professional athlete — that's it. It is a hustle that they want every athlete to participate in, because the powers that be possess sour grapes that a young athlete can make more money in a year, than most middle class uni graduates make in a lifetime. This is also the reason employers want to hire graduates, because it demonstrates that a candidate is able to envision a goal, enter into and complete the long term demand of a degree. In short, it demonstrates discipline. This is the same requirement we see in professional sports in the US — owners want assurances that their young talent also possess the discipline to play the game of academic life. Every time a player foregoes university to enter into the draft, it is seen as an outlier that is sidestepping 'the rules'. But, in reality, nowhere else in the world do we see talented athletes withering on the vine, going through the university process to become successful professional sportsmen.

    Of course, MLS salaries are much lower than anywhere else in the football world — so why the emphasis on the college draft? As I said, it's sour grapes. People without the knowledge and experience of being an athlete — but who run these organisations — want to maintain barriers to success for those young people that are talented, experienced and capable athletes.

    Everyone knows that for the US to be competitive in the world of football — the LAST thing a young player should be doing is wasting his prime in the NCAA. At this time, and for the foreseeable future, college soccer seems to be the only reasonable means of developing young talent with a semblance of competitiveness, because we lack the market for a multi-tiered system of leagues with heritage, with a strong supporter/ fan base to finance it and supply the juggernaut of a premier league. The real loss for the US, as a footballing nation, is that the best players in the country are immigrants that spend their days working construction, or in the nation's kitchens and warehouses, working blue collar jobs. These folks will never be scouted.
