JSSA Magic was started by John Smith, a former player with the New England Patriots. John came to the United States from England in the summers of 1970-72 and developed soccer programs at two different summer camps in western Massachusetts. The Patriots invited him to a tryout in 1973 and John gained experience in a season with the New England Colonials of the Atlantic Coast League before joining the Patriots.
John stopped playing in 1983 and has developed soccer programs even before he retired from football. Recently, John started JSSA Magic.
JSSA Magic is a family-oriented soccer club that is interested in individual player development. JSSA Magic aims to provide an advanced level of soccer and fitness training to build solid foundations of proper technical and tactical awareness and to compete at the highest possible level.
JSSA Magic works to teach the techniques of the game, wanting every player to be confident with the ball at their feet and be able to play one-on-one, both offensively and defensively.
