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 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 Recruiting Director, Taylor Bracken, at This email address is being protected from spambots.

JSSA is happy to announce the formation of ELITE teams for the 2016-17 club year! These teams will be comprised of the most talented and promising players selected at tryouts at our two Metro West locations - Medfield/Millis and Olin College, Needham. The players invited to play on these ELITE teams will be held to a higher standard of player expectations and commitment in order to prepare them to play at the next level. These ELITE players will have the opportunity to play for the top JSSA coaches and with players who have the same skills, determination and tenacity as themselves. ELITE teams will start at the Under 11 age groups. All players (at all levels of play) will have the opportunity for re-evaluation and movement at the end of each season. Player movement will take place when appropriate. This flow/relationship between ELITE team players and those on the premier and select teams is crucial to the success of all players.

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!
