Jhonny Arteaga's Elite Soccer Program. JA Elite Soccer Academy is based in Connecticut and was founded by local professional soccer player Jhonny Arteaga, to provide club-conflict free elite soccer education. Year-Round soccer programs for all ages!




  • "Colette Quinn of Darien finds Jhonny Arteaga's Technical Training Program outstanding because he works on technique and skills until it is close to mastered for her ability level. Specifically, sharpening the smallest but important skills, stretching personal limits, pushing to excel, and increasing confidence. Colette says she has never enjoyed working as hard as she does in Jhonny's soccer clinics. Jhonny offers a unique combination of challenge and fun! Thank you Jhonny!!!!!"  




  • "My daughter Olivia really enjoyed the program as the small class sizes provided great hands on instruction time and Jhonny and his team really make learning fun. She really improved her ball handling skills and was excited to sign up for another season." 



  • "My son learned so much, his technique has improved a lot. Very good program to improve soccer skills. The drills were really good. Very professional staff, always there to explain and answer questions. These skills will bring them quicker to a higher level. It was Lots of fun, love the coaches. We continue to be part of the training programs and I would do the program again. I would recommend this program for kids, to improve their skills, there are not a lot of programs that offer these technical drills."

  • My daughter perfectly described what JA Elite offers and sets it apart from other programs: ”Jhonny and his team are amazing! They taught me how to actually play soccer not just chase and kick the ball. I learned how to handle a soccer ball in all positions and even learned how to play against other players. I now understand a lot more about playing and competing in soccer and became a better player. And Jhonny is a great role model!” From a parent’s perspective, Jhonny and his team are professionals who customize clinics to meet the needs of the individual child regardless of their playing level. Their ability to explain technical skills and when to use specific techniques at a level which all understand is impressive. My daughter’s coaches remarked how much her technical and playing skills improved after attending the JA Elite clinics. Not only is she a better player at a sport she loves, but her confidence has been bolstered as well!
