Extra Program Extra Program


 

 
EXTRA PROGRAM

The EXTRA Program offers a more advanced level of competition for players who possess the appropriate skills, commitment, and abilities. The program offers soccer development opportunities similar to club soccer but maintains the core AYSO philosophies – including a guarantee that they will play at least half of every game. Players are selected through a competitive tryout process.

TRYOUTS

 See below for Tryout dates and times for Fall 2022 season.

 Players must try out each year.

 Players should attend both tryouts but must attend one to be considered for a team.

** Players must complete the Medical Release Form and Player Questionnaire and bring them to the first tryout they attend - Found at the bottom of this page.

 

COST

EXTRA Players pay the normal fall registration fee, plus additional fees for custom uniforms and specialized training.

There may also be fees for any optional tournaments in which the team participates

 

COMMITMENT

Players selected for the EXTRA Program will commit to their teams as their priority non-school activity. It is expected that every player attends each practice and game at the agreed-upon times.

In order to satisfy the commitment required by the EXTRA Program, players may not be enrolled and participate in other non-AYSO or Club soccer programs during the EXTRA Program season.

 

SCHEDULE

EXTRA teams will not play other Region 56 teams during the Fall season or participate in All Stars. 

There will be some travel involved, but the games are generally in Orange County.

Games are usually on weekends and there may be games on Sundays.

The season starts at the same time as the Region’s Fall season and usually ends a week after the end of the regular season.

Many teams also participate in tournaments before and after the season.
