As of June 1, 2015, JSSA acquired FC Napoli. FC Napoli was formed in 2002 by Esad Darman, who started training a small group of U10-U14 players in a gym in Worcester, MA. Within 6 months, FC Napoli had its first tryouts and formed 3 teams, Girls U12, Girls U13 and Boys U11.
Esad Darman brought a unique style for developing and teaching young soccer players that set itself apart from other clubs. As a native of Europe, Esad built the foundation of training based upon proven successful European methods. FC Napoli teams were coached to play a pure posession attacking style, with an emphasis on team ball control, team defense and skilled team striker play. It is the shared belief that building a strong soccer foundation, focused on fundamentals, will not only develop strong individual players, but also achieve a lifelong love for the world game, that made the merger of FC Napoli and JSSA such a good fit.
All FC Napoli teams will now be known as JSSA Napoli.
