Free Cleat Exchange at JAX Aug 16 and 17 (Table Volunteers Needed)

Each season, we hold a free Cleat Exchange, hosted at JAX Outdoor gear.  Bring your old outgrown cleats and trade them in for a pair or a more appropriate size.  If you don't find a pair, you can pick up a discount certificate for a new pair from JAX.  If you don't have a new pair to donate, you can still pick up a used pair...and just consider making a small donation to our financial aid form.

For the Fall, our cleat exchange will be August 16 (4:00-7:00 pm) and August 17 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

JAX is located at 4723 West Lincoln Way Ames, IA 50014
(515) 292-2276

Normal hours at JAX are:
M-F 9am - 8pm
Sat 9am - 6pm
Sun 10am - 6pm

Cynthia Jenks (our Cleat Exchange Guru) is going to be out of town during the cleat exchange, so we need a few people to sit and watch and help a bit.  No experience needed!  She or the folks at JAX can tell you what to do.

Ralph Ackerman 2012 "Joe Merchant Volunteer of the Year"


Ames Soccer Club is proud to name Ralph Ackerman as the Joe Merchant Volunteer of the Year. Ralph has served as a parent coach for approximately 357 seasons and has served as our registrar for about the last 8 years. Ralph has served as the coach of a U8 team for the last two years without having a child in that age group. The club and the parents of that team are grateful. He has been president, vice president, and director of coaching. 

Ames Soccer Club's Volunteer of the Year Award was named to honor Joe Merchant for his exemplary volunteerism with the club over many years including a term as its president.
