EXTRA Tryouts

Tryouts for the 2018 EXTRA program and our Player Development Program are coming up!   

 

Please spread the word and get your friends to come.  Any motivated player born between 2005 and 2009 can tryout (no AYSO experience necessary), but this is a higher level of soccer so ability and desire are important. 

EXTRA is a fun, family oriented, higher-level soccer experience for the more committed athletes looking for a more competitive level of play.  The season will run from late August 2018 to May 2019.  We are dedicated to making EXTRA a high-level soccer program that is both family friendly and community based.

For more information on these programs, please see information below.

You must attend one of these tryout days to be eligible for the EXTRA team, but we strongly encourage you to be at both.   If you have a major conflict and cannot meet these requirements, you must contact Craig Forsyth (craigcforsyth@gmail.com

What does our EXTRA Program stand for?

  1. Improving the skill, confidence, and passion of each and every individual player.
  2. Relentlessly teaching the difficult and critical fundamental skills necessary to become a strong soccer player, and the athletic skills necessary for success in any sport.
  3. Playing time for all - every player plays 3/4 of each game
  4. Balance - We encourage and support playing other sports and having a healthy family life.

 

 

Updated FAQ:

  • We have a conflict on one of the tryout days, can we still make the team?Yes, but it is always better to be there for both days.If there is a close call between one player and another, the committee is more confident choosing kids we know more about.
  • Can my 2010 child tryout?Absolutely!If they are confident in their skills and excited to compete please bring them to tryouts.It is always good experience for them but we don’t often take the younger kids on the team unless they really stand out and show great maturity for their age.
  • What about teams for older kids (2006, 2005, 2004)?We could support teams at this age groups but traditionally it is very hard for us to put a teams together for these age groups.We are not having tryouts for the older kids, but if you can pull together a bunch of solid players and good kids we would consider trying to put a team together…it just takes a lot of work to get 15 players together.

* Call backs are an invitation-only, final assessment based on performance at the tryouts.  Call backs are very important as they will be our final opportunity to determine the EXTRA teams.  

Those player who are not selected for the EXTRA program will be invited to join the Player Development Program in the Fall.

            EXTRA provides a fun, family oriented, higher-level soccer experience for the more committed athletes looking for a more competitive level of play.   We are dedicated to making EXTRA a high-level soccer program that is both family friendly and community based, so kids and parents are playing with their friends, carpools are easy to set up, and commutes to practice are short.  We are looking for families that are dedicated to community based sports and are willing to volunteer to make our programs the best that they can be, including being role models, organizers, and referees.   We also encourage and create space for the multi-interest kids to continue doing other things they love, which makes us unique.   

            The kids who play on the EXTRA team will play in a Fall league made up of EXTRA teams from other local AYSO regions like Palos Verdes and Culver City (they will not play in the regular Fall AYSO league). Teams practice twice a week; one of those practices is run by a professional trainer (like the All Star teams) and the other is run by a parent coach.
