Globall Concepts is an international enterprise providing the sports community and student athletes with professional instruction, career-development consultation, cultural exchange travel programs, and sports management services.
Peter Zaratin founded Globall Concepts after years of experience as a professional soccer player and coach. From a kid idolizing stars of local club team, Peter went on to play for several United Soccer League (USL) soccer franchises including the Staten Island Vipers, the New York Fever, and the the Montreal Impact, which is now a member of Major League Soccer (MLS). During a particularly successful season with the Impact, Peter was recruited by Spandauer Sport Verin, a former 3rd division club in the German Regionalliga.
It was during his time in Germany that Peter came up with the idea for Globall Concepts. Sitting in Cafe Kranzler in Berlin, he jotted down his vision for the next phase of his career: a company that would provide coaching, training, hospitality, and management. With a passion for education and coaching, Peter knew he wanted to transform the work he was already doing into a thriving business. And having started coaching on Long Island at the age of 14, he knew the Long Island soccer community was full of untapped potential. At the end of the season, Peter returned from Europe and focused on establishing Globall Concepts, and the napkins from Cafe Kranzler became a business plan.
Peter knew he wanted to give his clients access to the very best coaches and trainers from around the world, so Globall Concepts acquired a residential property where coaches from around the world could live while working locally with the Long Island community. With the assistance many inspirational coaches, including Tim Huefner, Michael Fuchs, Flavio Ferri, and Meghan Frey the company focused on bringing the best possible resources to youth soccer. It has now grown and expanded to variety of programs; each one is a platform for individuals to improve themselves, whether in athletics or in their professional lives, guided by Peter’s core passion for education.
Just as collaboration and partnerships are important in any team sport, they have been a crucial part of Globall’s business success. When Globall started expanding in its early years, Peter realized the organization would need facilities that could accommodate year-round programming. Working together, Peter and Charles Wang converted a Nassau County warehouse into a modern indoor multi-sport complex. He has recently partnered with Mitchell Rechler, whose commercial real estate and development expertise has helped guide and expand the Long Island Rough Riders soccer franchise. Peter sees Globall as a private enterprise with long-lasting public-private partnerships and strong community relationships.
The Globall team brings years of professional coaching experience, and creates individualized progressions that help players develop determination and become well-rounded athletes. In addition to coaching youth teams and training thousands of players on Long Island over the years, Peter has also served as head goalkeeper coach for the New York Power in the former WUSA league and trained the Long Island Rough Rider goalkeepers. He holds several national coaching licenses including an A, B and Youth Licenses from the United States Soccer Federation. Peter brings to Globall not only the technical soccer expertise developed as a pro coach, but also an understanding of how to inspire players to perform at their best. His top focus is to inspire kids to develop a passion for the game and encourage them to take ownership of their training and overall development.
We believe that playing sports is a way of life. The benefits gained from sports far surpass just the physical skill and prowess that are gained from playing. Individuals acquire knowledge, discipline, character, and the cooperation skills that are necessary to be valuable teammates and productive members of society.
