MD Rush Montgomery Blue Ajax ‘06B (BU13)

About Our Team

MRM '06 Magic Ajax plays in EDP 2nd Division and is Platinum level, ranked top 20 in the State of Maryland with GotSoccer.  Our team plays both competitive Soccer and Futsal. Coach Devin Payton, (see bio) trains the team in Soocer in the Spring and Fall and has an intense Futsal season from November to March. In 2019, MRM Magic Ajax was a Finalist in the MD State Futsal Cup and the Winner of the Bethesda Premier Cup.  

The team plays in the EDP league in the fall and spring and with the Magic Moves Futsal League in the winter. We play many local competitive tournaments in the fall and spring and during the winter, the teams compete in Futsal Tournaments. We practice in the Northern Montgomery County area – Germantown, Gaithersburg, Rockville – on fields convenient to I-270. EDP is a travel league; however, games are played in Maryland, with the majority in the Howard County/Baltimore area. Travel is usually limited to an hour or an hour and a half distance for away games.

Team Culture & Background

The team is organized with a focus on leadership and player development. Our players are taught skills for long term soccer appreciation as well as future opportunities. The parents and coaches are dedicated to players on and off the field and emphasize good sportsmanship, tactical skills, and teamwork as pillars for a successful team. All players are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment to attend practices, games, and tournaments.

MRM '06 AJAX started in 2012 as a single team playing U7 in the SAM Soccer League under the coaching of Christos Nicholas and Leroy Haynes.  AJAX joined Maryland Rush Montgomery (MRM) as a U9 team and played in NCSL for 2 years. The team increased to 2 teams (2005 and 2006) in 2016 and added Devin Payton to their training program. Beginning in Fall 2017, both teams began to be coached and trained by Devin Payton and have changed their name to Magic Ajax.  The 2005 and 2006 Teams continue to train together, share resources and socialize.
