Partners offer 2 full scholarships to prospective soccer coaches training with Ajax
Orlando, FL – (May 30, 2005) - Ajax America announces their partnership with the Chris Nedelcovych Soccer Foundation (CNSF) effective immediately. The CNSF is a not for profit group whose mission is to enhance and promote the education and training of aspiring soccer coaches. This organization was founded after Chris Nedelcovych died in a multi-car accident on November 14, 2001. At the time of his death Chris was awaiting admission into the University of Tampa where he hoped to play soccer, coach, and major in business. CNSF assists young soccer enthusiasts wanting to teach the game and spread their passion to younger players. Through this foundation Chris Nedelcovych’s dreams are carried out by others and he continues to have a positive impact.
“Ajax is very excited to have this opportunity to work with such a reputable organization,” stated Brian Long, the Director of Marketing for Ajax America. “We look forward to a successful partnership and hope to work with the Chris Nedelcovych Soccer Foundation for many years.”
As a result of this partnership the CNSF has donated 2 full scholarships to coaches attending an Ajax National Training School Coaches Education Package. Recipients receive a non-refundable round trip plane ticket to the Ajax National Training School location one month prior to the starting date. The scholarships will cover the cost of tuition and residency fees if applicable. All coaches between the ages of 17-23 are encouraged to apply for this unique opportunity.
Ajax America is proud to join US Youth Soccer and the National Youth License program as the 3rd soccer conglomerate to promote and work alongside the Chris Nedelcovych Soccer Foundation.
