AYSO Area 11V


AYSO EXTRA™ is a PROGRESSIVE PLAYER PROGRAM designed to provide a more challenging level of soccer for AYSO players who have the interest, skills and abilities. AYSO EXTRA™ was developed to create more competitive soccer experiences without losing sight of what makes AYSO unique.

EXTRA™ enhances the player's experience and individual growth through soccer while retaining the spirit of and organization membership in AYSO

EXTRA™ is not designed to overshadow or harm the standard primary program - rather the goal is to strengthen AYSO by recruiting and retaining players and volunteers through providing more competitive play the AYSO way - all EXTRA™ programs embrace the Six Philosophies of AYSO.

We understand that you have a choice of soccer programs for your child. So, why choose AYSO EXTRA™? 

AYSO EXTRA™ is governed by the Six Philosophies that set AYSO apart from other youth soccer organizations:

Everyone Plays - Our goal is for kids to play soccer - so we mandate that every player on every team must play at least a half of every game.
Balanced Teams - Each year we form teams as evenly balanced as possible - because it is fair and more fun when teams of equal ability play.
Open Registration - Our program is open to all children. Interest and enthusiasm are the only criteria for playing. Players not selected for EXTRA™ teams are guaranteed placement on a team in AYSO's standard primary program.
Positive Coaching - Encouragement of player effort provides for greater enjoyment and learning by the players and ultimately leads to better-skilled and better-motivated players.
Good Sportsmanship - We strive to create a positive environment based on mutual respect rather than a win-at-all-costs attitude, and every AYSO program is designed to instill good sportsmanship in all participants.
Player Development - We believe that all players should be able to develop their soccer skills and knowledge to the best of their abilities, both individually and as members of a team, in order to maximize their enjoyment of the game.

Second, AYSO EXTRA™ is run and operated locally, by the same neighbors who run and operate all of AYSO's programs, and is supported by an extraordinary national organization.

Third, AYSO EXTRA™ coaches are trained under AYSO's coaching program, the only youth soccer coaching program accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education.

Fourth, AYSO EXTRA™ is more challenging quality soccer at a less challenging cost than similar programs.

Finally, AYSO EXTRA™ is designed to be FUN. A higher level of competition should never prevent players from enjoying themselves - the AYSO Way.


So, when deciding between
AYSO EXTRA and other programs, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Is my child guaranteed to play at least one-half of every game?
  • Do the coaches utilize positive coaching techniques and emphasize good sportsmanship?
  • Are the coaches trained under an accredited curriculum?
  • Is the focus on keeping the fun in the game while competing hard?
  • Are the people running the program local volunteers?
  • Am I getting good value for my registration dollar?
