FAQ's for EXTRA

FAQS FOR EXTRA

What is EXTRA? 
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 and to enhance each player's experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit and organization of AYSO. Teams in the EXTRA program compete against teams from Regions throughout the Orange County Area, and through tournaments, compete against teams throughout Southern California and neighboring states. 

How Does EXTRA Compare to Club? 
Both AYSO EXTRA and Club are competitive soccer programs targeting players that have a stronger desire and ability to play the great game of soccer. However, AYSO EXTRA focuses on the development of players in a competitive (but not a cut-throat) environment. All players in the AYSO EXTRA program will play at least 1/2 of every game. We believe the game is the best teacher, and no child should have to earn playing time.   

“The best teacher of the game of soccer is the game itself; guaranteed playing time is what makes AYSO EXTRA such a great program for young soccer players.” 
               – Tim Ward – Head Coach, Pepperdine University Women’s Soccer Team 

What is the Quality of Coaching/Training in the EXTRA Program? 
All EXTRA coaches possess either an AYSO Advanced or National Certification, and several of our coaches (like Club coaches) also hold the USSF E-Licenses or NSCAA equivalents. All of our coaches go through additional training and education to keep their skills and knowledge of the game up to date. As well, professional trainers also work with the teams/players to further develop and enhance their skills. These sessions focus on technical and tactical development of all players, as well as keeper training for those players who play that position.   

What are the Costs Associated with EXTRA? 
Registration fees for the full year for AYSO EXTRA are approximately $350. This includes all league games in the Fall and Spring seasons, professional skills training, play-off tournament, and a free tournament in January. Typically, Club programs cost between $800 - $3,000 per year.

 How are Costs so Low? 
Each Extra team will be responsible for volunteering a few times for the region during the year to earn money to pay for tournaments or anything else the team might need.  In addition, referees are all in house and so refs are needed for home games and tournaments.

 How Many Tournaments do Extra Teams Participate In? 
There is no limit but most teams play between 1-2 tournaments  in Spring and 1-2 tournaments in Fall. 

 What is the Season Game Schedule Like for Extra? 
The game schedule is very similar to that of the regular Fall and Spring seasons with around 10 games per season usually on Saturdays.  The only difference is that Extra plays half of their games in other regions around the Orange County area.

 Will Extra Team Players Have Fall or Spring Team Conflicts? 
No. Extra teams are formed after the Fall or Spring team seasons are over.  Players will never have to choose between the two.

 Can an Extra player play on a Fall or Spring Core Team? 
Unfortunately not.  Extra teams require a higher level of commitment that is difficult to maintain if a player is on multiple teams.

 When are Tryouts for Extra? 
There are tryouts for Extra, but dates are TBD.  Check this website for the latest tryout dates. Teams are formed just a few weeks after tryouts.
