2 PROGRAM OVERVIEW Our goal at Ajax is to provide young players with the highest level training and playing experience the area has to offer. All of our coaching staff are former professional and/or division 1 college players who want to help build the sport of soccer in the Annapolis/Baltimore area. Our teams strive to compete at the national level, and the coaching staff is dedicated to preparing our players for the college game. One of our main focuses is creating a healthy and competitive environment where players can develop and be recognized for their efforts. We work closely with players, parents, and colleges to see that our boys have the best opportunities possible to play college soccer. - Ajax puts development above all else. We strive for both results and quality. In youth soccer, results without quality does not help develop players for the next level. Quality without results is meaningless.
