IMPORTANT

We have recently been receiving numerous calls and emails from amateur status and out of contract semi pro/professional players from the US and around the world (including college) who wish to enter the professional ranks.
We generally only represent proven professional players, but do understand how talented individuals can occasionally be missed.
 
Sending a good quality video or resume is a good starting point, but there is no substitute, at any level of play, to assess your capabilities - in a live scenario -  so that we can evaluate your true potential.

The four day trial will also consist of a video conference call to advise players how our Intermediaries negotiate contracts on your behalf.
We will look to select two (sometimes three) of the best players to send to well established professional clubs, either in the US or abroad for a minimum of 7 to 14 days.

Finally, we ask that you
contact us via email, in the first instance, to receive comprehensive details and further information.
If you wish to be considered

4 Days / 6 Sessions -16 Players Maximum



As a talented young player, what questions do you ask yourself when you apply for a tryout?

The point of a 'Pro-Trial' is to give yourself the opportunity
to be seen, showcased and/or individually tested. There isn't one serious soccer player on the globe who does not dream
of playing for the best teams in the world. The main way of doing this is to get an intermediary (agent) from a reputable company who has the contacts to do this. If it is your aim to
play professionally, at any level,  then you must seek out representation.

The AJF Agency generally hold two trials a year via invitation only. The methods we use are unique to us and concentrate on the individual. We then select 2 players to attend a professional club for up to two weeks. If you wish to attend you must be between 18 and 28 years old at the time you apply.


Our trials are held with the Dynamo Soccer School, in Michigan, and is specifically for those who have the potential to play at a professional club whether in the US or in Europe.

    REPRESENTATION

The AJF Agency organize these trial events for individuals who have the necessary level of ability, talent, and potential.

If you are invited by us, are technically gifted,  and totally committed to becoming a professional player, then we will do our part to help you achieve your goal, in addition to providing professional advice and guidance. The minimum starting salary in the MLS, for example, for 2017 is around $53,000+. This exponentially increases into the millions per year, If you make it to the highest level in Europe, and become a 1st team senior player at one of the top clubs.


After speaking with many recruitment/scouting companies, Dynamo Soccer School were  a perfect partner match for our organization. Based in the Metro Detroit area they specialize in the recruitment of highly talented individual players as a supplement to their current club, high school, and college soccer programs. Their strategy is to apply currently used, and proven, European training techniques and metrics and apply them to players, in a focused small group setting.

Their staff coaches are of of the highest quality and bring with them many years of experience at European professional playing and coaching levels.Thanks to the decades of expertise and knowledge of these staff, they are able to bring European football innovation into evaluating footballers and coming to a definitive decision, via data usage and playing analysis, as to who has the potential to go on to become professional.


For these trials, we will specifically target and work in cooperation, and collaboration directly with some of the finest football clubs in Eastern Europe, including, FC Dynamo Kyiv, Shakhtar Donetsk, Legia Warsaw, Spartak Moscow, Arsenal Kiev and many others.

The players that we select from the registration process, will have already been screened and interviewed for level of ability, in addition to other criteria.
If invited (and accepted) you will go through an initial briefing regarding what to expect and how the professional world functions at US and international clubs.

We use our network of club contacts, general managers, recruitment officers and technical directors from the MLS and USL, the English Premiership, The Football League Championship, and 1st/2nd Division, in addition to clubs in other parts of Europe/Scandinavia/South Central America. We also negotiate with clubs in the Far East and Australia.

                       Please do not hesitate to use the 'contact' page if you require any further questions or queries answered.

IMPORTANT: We do not offer soccer tours. We are a regulated USSF registered intermediary and official FIFA Match Agents looking explicitly for exceptionally talented individual players of the highest quality who can be sent to trial at professional clubs.
 



TESTIMONIALS


 

Going to the Dynamo Soccer combine was a great experience from both the mental and physical aspect. Being assessed by Leonid Shor and his son Sam, was a very fun but challenging experience. The European based tests, analyze every detail in very close measures. From fitness tests to skill tests, it will push you to your limits and really find the true player you are on an individual basis.
 
These tests focused on speed, shooting, passing, dribbling, and mental capacity of staying focused in each drill. I enjoyed how this combine had to push me to another level that I had to reach my self and find it within if I really want to play at the next level. This combine showed the level I can play at, and what I need to do to get to a higher level under a very strict professional staff.
 
Because the tests are so complex, it was very challenging to stay focused and concentrated because to keep going at a fast pace with out getting fatigued, and doing 6 training sessions in 4 days, shows the fitness, technical, tactical, and mental shape you are in. By going to this combine, I learned so much which will prepare me for the next level, and get to the level needed to play as a professional.

I really enjoyed my trial with Dynamo Soccer School that was put on by AJF Agency.

The European training style was different than any training that you get in the States.

The training tempo and fitness testing were intense and on par with professional level of play. The coaches were very professional, knowledgeable, tough and personable, and made the overall atmosphere of the sessions positive and motivating. I learned new drills that I am excited to add into my own training. 

As the trial ended, AJF Agency was very quick to follow-up with professional and clear communication. Aaron took the time to reach out to me personally to gather feedback, talk about the sessions, my training, and my future. He took the time to listen and get to know me not only as a player but as a person. He made me feel valued and respected, and I trust that he has my best interest at heart. We also recieved thorough evaluations that have helped me to tailor my training to continue to be the best.

NCAA/NAIA rules and regulatiions require us to inform you that you may lose eligibility  to your program if you sign a professional contract, receive offers of representation, or have any form of payment, including expenses,given to you. However, student athletes and players are allowed to take part in Pro Combine  events leading to professional trials, as long as one does not miss practice / matches and/or classes during the academic year.

If you are a 'Pre-Collegiate' player (those still at high school) even if committed, you are allowed to trial/tryout, during both the winter/ summer breaks, at professional clubs before entering your college without it affecting eligibility and scholarships.  You are allowed to visit for up to 48 hours at each club, and expenses can be paid by the professional club inviting you. If you pay your own expenses, there is no time limit to your stay. 

Eligible college players are also allowed to attend Pro combines and trial/tryouts as part of an amateur group 'singly or individually' against professional athletes. If a player is offered a contract to play professionally then they (and possibly their parent/guardian(s) will have to decide whether to continue their college career or begin a professional career. We always advise student-athletes to seek independent advice. All players registering to trial should understand and adhere to the stringent rules and regulations, regarding your decision to participate. The AJF Agency take the NCAA, UAAA and SPARTA, doctrines, to protect amateurs, very seriously.
