AYSO Extra 

EXTRA is an AYSO core program for players who want to compete at a higher level. EXTRA does not take away from the regular program, but offers those athletes with the appropriate abilities and desire to follow a more progressive soccer experience, yet remain in the AYSO family. 

EXTRA operates under the same AYSO core philosophies: Everyone plays at least 50 percent of each game; selection to teams is based on open and fair evaluations; and the teams are formed to create competitive balance. 

The EXTRA Program in Region 498 will operate as a year-long program running concurrently to the regular Fall, Indoor, and Spring seasons. All EXTRA players are required to participate in either Fall or Spring regular seasons. This also means that EXTRA players can participate fully with both teams as well as All Star, tournament, National Games, and travel teams. 

EXTRA teams are formed through a Tryout procedure, which will be conducted in late July or early August each year. Once formed, the EXTRA teams will stay together for the whole AYSO membership year. 

As a separate program, EXTRA will be funded independently from the regular seasons. There also may be additional costs for tournament fees, travel, and uniforms, to mention a few. 

Each age division EXTRA team will have the freedom to operate as the coaches deem appropriate. This may include entering tournaments, playing local club teams, playing other EXTRA teams, or participating in local league play. EXTRA team games are to be played outside of the regular AYSO team schedule, which will typically mean late Saturday afternoon or Sunday.
