THE REGION 9 AYSO EXTRA PROGRAM IS DESIGNED TO PROVIDE A MORE COMPETITIVE SOCCER OPTION FOR BOYS AND GIRLS WHILE RETAINING THE SIX PHILOSOPHIES OF AYSO. 

 

What is AYSO 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, organization, and philosophies of AYSO.

AYSO Extra™ advantages Over Other Highly Competitive Programs:

  • Low Cost - Fees are kept reasonable to accommodate more players
  • Everyone Plays 3/4 - No one sits the bench, every team plays by the 3/4 rule. (no player will play four quarters until every player has played three quarters)
  • 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.
