ELITE program

We will not have any Elite teams for the 2015-2016 membership year.

Elite is part of AYSO's EXTRA program - an "extended play" opportunity created to provide a more challenging soccer experience for players who have the desire and skills needed, and to enhance  their experience and individual growth while retaining the spirit and organization of AYSO.  This program is designed for those players and families that seek a more competitive environment with a longer playing cycle.  The program will follow the six principles of AYSO (including playing time) while competing at higher levels. This is a program that will provide the best of AYSO with the competitive environment of club while being more supportive of the players and far less cost prohibitive. 

 It’s competitive soccer the “AYSO Way!”

The Elite season begins July 1st and runs side-by-side with the AYSO standard fall soccer program and AYSO Select –– you do not do both.  In conjunction with other AYSO regions, we have created the Bay Area Soccer League. The season includes fall league matches as well as spring and summer tournament play.

Players attend tryouts and are selected based on open and impartial evaluations. Tryouts are held annual and teams are re-formed every year.  Players can attend tryouts even if they have not registered for AYSO, by paying a $20 tryout insurance fee at tryouts.

If a player is not selected, he or she can still play AYSO fall and try out for AYSO Select. If a player is selected and has already registered for the AYSO fall season, that fee will be transferred to the Elite team. 

Every player plays at least 50% of each game.

Coaches are selected by the Davis AYSO Board after careful evaluations and will have strong experience and a commitment to player development.

Costs are similar to what families experience in Select soccer –– registration, uniforms (included in registration costs), and the cost to play in tournaments (tournament fees and travel costs).
