"I can't say enough about how [our son] appreciates the support, training and development he has received over the years with JSSA. He had a great freshman year making the JV team as a starting defender. I know his success in high school is a direct result of the wonderful coaching he has received over the years, and we are so happy to be part of this great soccer organization. Thank you all for your support and excellent coaching through the years and we look forward to continued development and success."

John Smith Soccer Academy brings professional coaching and management to club soccer, as well as enhanced training for youth soccer players in the Metro West area. The development of each player is the emphasis of every team in every age group. A top quality coaching staff, directed by an NSCAA Premier Coach in Felicity Day, will strive to bring out the best in each player, while working hard to improve each player's weakness. All of our teams will compete at the highest level possible in Massachusetts. We recognize the importance that soccer may play in our player's college experience. Our coaches will guide each player who is interested in playing at the college level through the process, including writing recommendations, contacting potential coaches, etc.

We are always looking for strong, talented players to join JSSA at any time of the year. If you are interested in trying out at a non-traditional time (during the Fall, winter, or Spring seasons), please email JSSA Recruiting Director, Taylor Bracken, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

John M. Smith, the New England Patriots "Rookie of the Year" in 1974, never touched an American football until he was 21 years old! So, how could he obtain this achievement, lead the NFL in scoring in 1979 and 1980 and become an NFL All-Pro Player in 1980!
