American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

AYSO Region 143

EXTRA BASICS

The EXTRA Program offers a more advanced level of competition for players who possess the appropriate skills, commitment and abilities. The program offers soccer development opportunities similar to club soccer but maintains the core AYSO philosophies – including a guarantee that they will play at least half of every game. Players are selected through a competitive tryout process.


TRYOUTS

  • Click here to register for tryouts (you will need to login to ayso143.org).  All players (new and returning) must register to attend tryouts.
  • Tryout dates are posted on the region calendar at this link for details.
  • Players must try out each year and are open to all age eligible players.
  •  There are 2 sessions scheduled, please plan to attend both!
COSTS
  • The EXTRA program registration fee is slightly higher than the recreational divisions and includes home/away jerseys, two practice jerseys, an EXTRA branded Region sweatshirt, and the EXTRA Program participation fee.
  • ALL players participating in any AYSO program must also pay the AYSO Annual Membership Fee ($20), which covers insurance and other resources provided by the national AYSO office. It goes directly to AYSO and is non-refundable, even in the event of a player dropping due to injury. This membership fee applies for ANY/ALL AYSO programs during the membership year, which runs 8/1 - 7/31.
  • Teams sometimes elect to buy balls, bags or warm up suits or other items at the players’ expense. There may also be fees for any optional tournaments in which the team participates.
SCHEDULE
  • EXTRA teams will not play other Region 143 teams during the Fall season or participate in All Stars.
  • There will be some travel involved, but the games are generally in Orange County and Long Beach.
  • Games are usually on weekends and there may be games on Sundays
  • Season starts at the same time as the Region’s Fall season and usually ends a week after the end of the regular season
  • Many teams also participate in tournaments before and after the season
