Extra Teams 2018-2019


EXTRA BASICS

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.

Check out our flyer to see how well our teams have done!

TRYOUTS
  • See below for Tryout dates and times for Fall 2018 season.
  • Players must tryout each year.
  • Players should attend both tryouts but must attend one.
HOW TO REGISTER TO TRYOUT FOR AN EXTRA TEAM

  • Logon to www.ayso55.org.  When registering your player choose the EXTRA program and go thru checkout completely. You will need to complete the e-sign form online. If you are new to our region please be sure to upload a copy of your birth certificate or you will need to attend one of our live registration dates and bring it with you.
  • When you checkout, since this is a tryout program you will not be charged any registration fee. Once tryouts have concluded if your player makes the team you will be asked to accept the position and logon to pay the early bird registration fee.
  • If your player does not make the team you can be transferred to our Fall Program and will be eligible for our early bird rate since you registered prior to April 19th.

COST
  • EXTRA Players pay the normal fall registration fee.
  • Teams sometimes elect to buy balls, bags or warm up suits or other items at the players’ expense. There may also be fees for any optional tournaments in which the team participates.
COMMITMENT
  • Players selected to 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 55 teams during the Fall season or participate in All Stars. 
  • There will be some travel involved, but the games are generally in Orange County and Long Beach.
  • Games are usually on weekends and there may be games on Sundays.
  • 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.
