AYSO EXTRA is designed to provide a more challenging level of play for those players
who possess the appropriate interest, skills and abilities and to enhance each player's
experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit
and organization of AYSO. The goal of EXTRA is to strengthen AYSO by retaining
players and volunteers in additional primary programs operated under the AYSO
About the Program
The Board of Directors of Region 47 is committed to developing a world-class
competitive soccer program that is focused on providing a more challenging
environment and enhancing the training and development for our more serious soccer
players. All interested players will attend a try-out in the Fall and/or Spring each year,
where they will be evaluated by an assessment team. Players who are chosen to
participate, will be notified shortly after the last try-out. Players who are not chosen for
one of the EXTRA teams, will be placed on a core team in the Fall season. Unlike the
core program Fall season, EXTRA teams will be formed for a one year period
competing against other EXTRA teams through the Inland Empire in both the Fall and
Spring seasons as well as tournament play in the Spring and early Summer. This
program is geared toward the top 10-20% of players in each division.
Parents and Players
Participation in the EXTRA program requires a higher level of commitment from both
parents and players. Unlike the standard recreational program(s) the Region offers, the
EXTRA program demands more time and commitment and needs to be the player’s
primary sports commitment. Players who participate in the EXTRA program cannot play
in another competitive soccer program (i.e. Club). Your attendance at all team functions
(practices, games, tournaments, and other events) is not only expected, but it is critical
to a successful season. Parents and players are expected to adhere to all rules and
regulations, the Philosophies of AYSO, and conduct themselves in an appropriate
manner both on and off the pitch and treat others with respect.
The Region will be holding tryouts at Ab Brown Sports Complex on the following dates:
