About AJAX

The AJAX mission is to instill in our players a life-long love of the game of soccer.

Our Mission

To instill in our players a life-long love of the game of soccer.

We do this by promoting the highest degree of individual technical expertise &

teaching each player to harness their talent to make their team successful.

 "AJAX Soccer Club serves it's players by building a culture based on

Respect, Accountability, Ambition, Service, & Family in a extraordinarily Unique club atmosphere"

Our Philosophy

On the field, our philosophy is captured in the word: technique.

"Quality AND results. Results without quality is boring." Johan Cruyff

  • winning the "right way

    Technical expertise is at the heart of every training session. To achieve this, AJAX delivers the highest level of technical proficiency to our players at every age group. When a player masters the ball & trusts what they can do with it, that player will love the game. AJAX believes winning comes as the natural result of proper development & that winning alone does not foster enjoyment of the game. AJAX passionately believes that winning the "right way” is with expansive, skillful, & dynamic soccer.

  • AJAX & The USSF

    AJAX takes seriously the mandates & instructions of the United States Soccer Federation that young, American soccer players need to be skillful, creative & imaginative on the ball. AJAX coaches demonstrate this by being skillful players in their own right.  Players are not chastised for using skill in games, as we strongly believe an emphasis has to be placed on taking risks -- even mistakes -- allowing players to play with complete freedom & expression. By seeking excellence in our players' individual skills, AJAX helps our players make their teams more successful.  

  • Play At The Level You Desire

    AJAX players can play at any level they desire - high school, college, amateur, or professional soccer.  With practice & a desire to perfect their game technically, there is no reason an AJAX player can't play at any level they set their minds on.

  • Off The Field

    Every aspect of AJAX’s administrative team works transparently, openly, & timely to provide parents & players with a sense of trust. Keeping our soccer families informed is paramount to the success of our players, teams, & club. Our AJAX mobile app, website, & social media pages provide several ways for our families to engage with the club.  The AJAX board & Staff encourage positive feedback & open dialogue within the club.
