EXTRA is an "extended play" opportunity created to provide a more challenging soccer experience for players who have the desire and skills needed, and to enhance that their experience and individual growth while retaining the spirit and organization of AYSO.
It’s competitive soccer the “AYSO Way!”
The EXTRA season begins August 1, 2013 and runs side-by-side with the AYSO standard fall soccer program and AYSO Select –– you do not do both. The season includes fall league matches as well as spring tournament play.
Players attend tryouts and are selected based on open and impartial evaluations. Tryouts will be held June 15 and June 20 (see details below) for the upcoming season and teams are re-formed every year. Players will be notified by June 30, 2013, whether they have been selected or not. 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 Extra 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, and the cost to play in tournaments (tournament fees and travel costs).
This season we are forming teams for U11 boys (born 8/1/02–7/ 31/03) and U13 girls (born 8/1/00–7/31/01).
Tryouts will be Saturday June 15th and Thursday June 20th at Walnut Park in Davis. Please arrive 30 minutes early to sign in, and come with soccer cleats, shin guards and water.
