Are you interested in
your child to play a higher level of AYSO soccer
The AYSO Extra Play
Program offers players the opportunity to play at a more competitive
level than the Recreational level. There are NO ADDITIONAL
Registration fees to play in this program.
The Extra program
was developed for U9 through U14 players with advanced abilities and soccer
skills. This AYSO program recognizes the needs of the more
competitive player. Many participating regions will have Boys and
Girls teams in U9, U10, U11, U12, U13 and U14 brackets. Players
participating in this program will compete against other Extra teams
from different regions and local areas. While many Extra games will
be played within Area L (South Orange County), some games will be
played outside of Area L. There will be Saturday and Sunday
games with the season lasting from September to December. Many
teams will continue in the Spring season as a Select team and
participate in tournaments, if they wish.
Players must tryout
and be selected to play in the Extra program.
Player evaluation is made by a
committee based on the player’s soccer skills, attitude and
competitiveness. Players must attend at least one of
the scheduled tryouts to be eligible but both tryouts are
recommended as players with the highest ratings from both
tryouts will be selected to the team.
AYSO Extra players
may not play soccer for any other team or organization during
the Fall season September through December. (This includes guest
playing on a club roster)
All age brackets are
not guaranteed. We will need qualified coaches and ENOUGH qualified
players at tryouts to form teams in each age bracket.
This program provides a team for
each age level, unlike Recreational soccer where two ages are
combined in a division. For example, the recreational
program combines the ten year old players and eleven year old
players in the Under 12 year old (U12) division. The Extra
program provides a team for under 11 year olds (U11) and a
separate division for under 12 year olds (U12). There are
also teams for Under 13 (U13) and Under 14 (U14) players. As
with all other soccer leagues, ages are based on the player's
age as of July 31 of a given year. See the age chart on our
In order to maximize player
development, the younger ages play with reduced size teams and
fewer players on the field. This increases the number of touches
each player gets during the game and makes tactical decisions
easier as they are developing their awareness of their teammates
and game situation. This allows them to grow into the game at an
appropriate pace to maximize their learning and development.
Under 10 divisions will be playing 9 vs 9 with
12 on a team.
Under 9 divisions which will be playing
7 vs 7 with
10 players on a team.
