AYSO Region 13 will be holding one more set of tryouts for EXTRA on Sunday, 4/29.
The EXTRA program is an advanced soccer program for soccer players and families who want to make an exceptional commitment to soccer play throughout the calendar year. The purpose of tryouts is to evaluate whether we have sufficient talent and interest in team formation for the Boys’ and Girls’ 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U and 14U divisions. By design, the EXTRA program is very limited in its scope, with only one or two teams formed in each division.
In contrast to EXTRA, which is a very small program, our regular Fall soccer program serves over 2500 children and does not require participation in tryouts. Registration for the Fall 2018 soccer season will be open to the general public very soon (shortly after EXTRA tryouts).…
To be considered for participation in the EXTRA program, players must attend at least one tryout on or before the following date:
Sunday, April 29, 2018 @ McKinley School
(325 S Oak Knoll Ave, Pasadena, CA 91101)
10U (Boys and Girls Born in 2009)

WHAT IS AYSO EXTRA?
EXTRA is a program that offers organized soccer for players who want to play at a more competitive level within the AYSO program and adhering to the AYSO philosophies. Unlike typical club soccer teams, when children are accepted onto an EXTRA team, they are guaranteed to play at least 50% of every game in which they attend.
The EXTRA program generally runs from August through February, followed by participation in competitive league playoffs and tournaments. EXTRA players are not eligible for certain other advanced play programs (such as All Stars). Players will participate in a minimum of two practices a week on Region 13 Fields. One will be lead by the team coach while the second will be run by professional trainers.
As with any AYSO program, the volunteers are the ones who make AYSO possible. EXTRA is also a volunteer based program. Each team will have a certified Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Referee (3) Team and a Team Manager. We will only form teams if a sufficient number of qualified volunteers are present to form the team. If you are interested in volunteering please fill out an application for consideration. Also note that volunteering does not guarantee a position on any EXTRA Team.
