AYSO Extra Program - Competitive Soccer for the Advanced Player
AYSO EXTRA™ is designed for players who have the interest, skills and abilities and desire to enhance their experience and individual growth while retaining the spirit of the game and membership in AYSO.
The goal of the Region 87 EXTRA program is to provide a reasonable alternative to those players whose skill and passion for the game leads them to want to be in a more competitive play environment with out having to incur the expense of going to a club team.
The EXTRA program is intended for players and families who want more than a casual weekend soccer experience. Region 87 is absolutely committed to player development and our EXTRA format will include professional training for all players in the program.
Weekly training by a professional trainer designed with the team's coach to meet the needs of the team.
Weekly group skills training to build a foundation of proper form and technique.
Weekly group goal keeper specific training.
The EXTRA program is a tryout-based program for children playing in 9U-15U. All players wishing to play EXTRA must be present for at least one tryout. Divisions are based upon birth year and in Region 87, if we do not believe we can field a quality team we will not have a team for the specific division.
Each player who accepts a position on an EXTRA team will be assessed an added player fee to cover the costs of the added trainers and uniforms. For MY2019 - the added cost is $175 per player. This cost is in addition to the normal core fees that all players pay to play in AYSO soccer.
For Fall 2019 - Region 87 is expecting to field teams in the following divisions in Extra Play:
G9U (BY 2011)
G10U (BY 2010)
