(May 30, 2017) Eastside FC has teamed up with storied soccer club AFC Ajax Amsterdam to host its second annual summer training program from July 17th through 20th at our very own Preston Park. This camp is open to all U10-U16 players.
The series of four two-hour training days will be staffed by trainers from the Ajax Academy at “de Toekomst” (The Future) in Amsterdam. Technical staff from Eastside FC will serve as assistant coaches for this exclusive event. Players can expect to learn unique and progressive technical and agility skills.
The 4-day program is designed for accomplished youth soccer players born between 2002 to 2008 (U10-U16). To ensure appropriate coach-to-player ratios, space is limited. There will be four groups of 20 players each.
The registration fee of $200 will include one 2-hour training session per day from 9:00 am - 11:00 pm (Boys) and 12:00 noon – 2:00pm (Girls) as well as official Ajax training gear.
Ajax is renowned for having one of the greatest soccer academies in the world. The Ajax Academy has produced players such as Johan Cruijff, Dennis Bergkamp, Wesley Sneijder and Edwin van de Sar. In 2016, there were 77 Ajax-trained players playing in the UEFA Champions League competition, which is more than any other club. Their unique training methods and emphasis on creative and attacking soccer is key to this success. Don’t miss this opportunity to train like a real Ajax player right here at Preston!
