AFC Ajax Camp Information:
Toronto Skillz F.C is proud to host four (4) Academy coaches of the renowned and prestigious AFC Ajax soccer club for the inaugural AFC Ajax/Toronto Skillz FC International Summer Soccer Camp. The camp comes on the heels of our Academy’s visit to the hallowed grounds of “Sportpark De Toekomst” and the Ajax Arena for a week of training and games at the facility of one of the preeminent developmental academies globally. Staffs of both organizations were very happy with all aspects of TSFC’s visit to Amsterdam and embarked on talks to expand the collaboration to partner on camps in Toronto that would be beneficial to the long term development of Canadian soccer players who were not able to make the trip to Europe.
AFC Ajax has a storied history that includes developing the philosophy of “Total Football” that has been adopted by many of the top footballing countries and clubs worldwide. The concept of “Total Football” has shaped many of the best soccer playing teams and players for many generations and is the philosophy that Toronto Skillz FC has embraced in its Long Term Player Development (LTPD) model.
The alumni of the AFC Ajax Youth Academy reads like a who’s who of some of the most elite talent to ever set foot on soccer fields globally. They include Dutch International players Johan Cruyff, Edwin Van Der Saar, Dennis Bergkamp, Patrick Kluivert, Marco Van Basten, Rafael Van der Vaart, Wesley Sneijder, and Nigel De Jong.
Notable alums of their first team include Frank Rijkaard, Clarence Seedorf, Edgar Davids, Jari Litmanen, Jaap Stam, Luis Suarez, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar, Thomas Vermaelen, and Jan Vertonghen among others.
We are delighted that AFC Ajax has agreed to work with us and look forward to a long fruitful relationship that will further propel Toronto Skillz FC towards its goal of being the premier developmental academy in the country.
