What is Ajax?
A premier, Tri-State (MA, VT, NY) soccer club which plays in the Capital District Youth Soccer League (www.CDYSL.org). Teams will also go to the Nordic Cup, a Mid-June tournament in Burlington, VT and the Memorial Day Invitational in Guilderland, NY. Our club takes its name from the legendary Dutch team, Amsterdam Ajax, and thus is properly pronounced "Eye-ax".

What is the purpose of Ajax?
To improve the technical and tactical ability of players, and to develop the proper mentality toward training and games. Ajax is a significant step up from town travel soccer.
What is the commitment?
2-3 Commitments per week: we train 2-3 times and play 1 or 2 matches per week. All training sessions take place at Williams College. A PLAYER SHOULD MAKE 90% OF ALL AJAX PRACTICES AND GAMES once the season starts. Attendance at practice is critical to individual and team development. If you can't make 90% of the activities, we recommend that you discuss participation with one of the staff coaches. We have had a significant number of players successfully participate in Ajax as well a winter/spring sport or school extracurricular activity.
