Vela Soccer Academy

Albuquerque, New Mexico

Welcome, and thank you for visiting the Vela Soccer Website!

With more than 50 years of combined coaching experience at the collegiate and club levels, playing experience at top 10 collegiate, professional, and regional or national teams, Jorge and Kit Vela are an incredible team and asset to young soccer players here in New Mexico. Their affinity for coaching combined with unrivaled passion for the game produces impressive physical and mental development in the athletes they work with. Jorge and Kit’s expertise includes soccer and futsal training; goalkeeper and striker coaching; and mental conditioning and college preparation seminars. They coached the first Men's Semi-Professional Futsal team in New Mexico, the New Mexico RoadRunners FC, who competed in the Major League Futsal (MLF) in 2015 and the Vela's took them to the play-offs in their first season.  It was an exciting first season creating excitement for Futsal!

And now, the Vela's Futsal training has blossomed (ages 5-18) and the Vela's were able to work with and become a chapter of the very prestigious Pateadores of Southern California, as the Pateadores NM., drop down of branches, New Mexico.
