Player & Club Consulting


Our mission is to streamline the process of getting to college or create the pathway for players to become professional players.

Due to eligibility reasons players cannot sign with agents if they still wish to be eligible for college. Therefore, we decided to create a consulting service for players to get guidance on getting to the next level.

Neil Thompson and the Big Cat Goalkeeping Team have guided 100+ Goalkeeper on to the college game. Neil has also trained and given advice to help guide many goalkeeper to go on to the professional ranks.

This service has been put in place to allow the goalkeeper and the parents of a goalkeeper to hire Neil Thompson as a consultant to help guide goalkeepers on their journey.

There are no guarantees, but we can assure Neil Thompson will give you the best advice in his power to tailor make a plan for you on your journey.

“Everyone in soccer has a journey that is unique to them, this format allows us to consult and devote real time and attention to advising the player based on their level and their needs. Whether you have the ability to be a college level athlete or a professional soccer player I can give you the guidance and advice need to help aid that goal” – Neil Thompson

We created this service due to supply and demand. It is not possible for Neil to advise all players year round, so this will allow for access and priority to Neil’s time. Neil Thompson will be your direct point of contact and you will have access to Neil on daily basis should you seek advice when needed.

This service will be charged on a monthly basis so there is no long term risk to you. Neil is confident that you will feel empowered by his approach and is excited to get to work for you.
