We are delighted to announce to you all that Central Ajax FC now has an affiliation this season with Coventry City Football Academy (CCFA) and we look forward to working in partnership with them for the rest of this season.

Sport is widely regarded as a key component of the cultural identity of both individuals and communities, with sporting provision contributing to the quality of life within the local community. Whether participating, volunteering, coaching, supporting or watching sport, there is an intrinsic pleasure derived from sport and physical activity.

Our affiliation will see CCFA assist Central Ajax with:

CPD Workshops events
• Provision of CPD events at the Academy exclusively for Grassroots Partner Scheme organisations which will include:
• Foundation Phase Coaching Workshop (Under 8-11)
• Youth Development Phase Coaching Workshop (Under 12-16)
• Goalkeeping Coaching Workshop
• Sports Science and Medical Workshop

Bonus Agreement
• Enrolment to the CCFA “Bonus Agreement”, by where if Central Ajax FC as a Grassroots Partner directly recommend a player to the Head of Academy Recruitment and the recommended player goes on to sign a contract with Coventry City Football Club, a bonus payment will be received to Central Ajax FC

Paul Jayes, Head of CCFA Recruitment said:
“We are delighted to be working with a club of the stature of Central Ajax. Our academy vision is to offer opportunities to all in Coventry and Warwickshire. Whilst working closely with the committee and the football club we will offer pathways and opportunities for children and coaches of Central Ajax. Our Partner club affiliation with Central Ajax is something we are passionate to develop, and we are excited to work with the football club”

Ian Charlton, Vice Chairman at Central Ajax commented:
"We are very pleased that we are now an official Grassroots Junior Partner Club working with Coventry City Academy Recruitment Department. The pitches at Ajax Park are renowned as some of the best around today and we are one of the few local football clubs to boast our own privately run site. A longstanding project of the committee has been to make Ajax Park a centre of excellence for grass roots football and this affiliation is a continued step to us being distinguished for developing young talent across Warwickshire."

For any further information on this affiliation please do not hesitate to contact the committee.

With very best wishes
Central Ajax Committee
