American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.


AYSO Extra™ Soccer League is an inter-regional gaming circuit for participating AYSO Extra™ program teams. 

AYSO Extra™ is a competitive soccer program designed to provide a more challenging level of play for those players who possess the appropriate interest, skills and abilities necessary to compete at a higher level. AYSO's sixth philosophy, Player Development is a primary focus of the AYSO Extra™ program. These teams are formed through a tryout process.

AYSO Extra™ advantages Over Other Highly Competitive Programs:
Low Cost - Fees are kept reasonable to accommodate more players
Everyone Plays - No one sits the bench, every team plays by the 1/2 rule.
Quality Trainers - To help players to better develop technical skills, tactical abilities
Player Development - Setting a clear path to help player achieve realistic goals and realize their potential while having fun learning the game of soccer.
Positive Coaching - Certified, experienced and knowledgeable coaches who are positive, instructive and encouraging with the players.
Trained Quality Referees - Game Officials who are mindful of player safety and who referee for the love of the game and not a paycheck.

Families in the EXTRA program volunteer just as they do in the regular Core program and "give back" to the Core program in a variety of ways including refereeing games, helping at registration, and providing tactical knowledge to Core program coaches.
