Do you want your child to have fun playing soccer, while obtaining the necessary skills to advance to the next level?
Consider AYSO EXTRA, which gives more training, but still allows all kids to play, unlike club soccer, when many players sit on the bench during games. The best way to learn how to do something is by doing it, and not by watching others play.
AYSO EXTRA is a tryout based competitive game-circuit program that offers players a more challenging, higher level of soccer for AYSO players who possess the appropriate skills, abilities and drive. The season will run from mid-August 2022 to early June 2023. Tryouts for boys and girls will be held this week, April 26 to April 30. If callbacks are needed they will be held May 3, 4 and 5.
Players participate in a fall league made up of EXTRA teams from other AYSO regions like Pasadena, Palos Verdes and Culver City. Teams practice twice a week; one of the practices is run by a professional trainer and the other is run by a parent coach. In the winter and spring, teams participate in tournaments around the southland.
Families in the EXTRA program volunteer just as they do in the regular AYSO Core program and “give back” to the Core program in a variety of ways including refereeing games, helping at special events such as uniform distribution, picture day and tournaments.
To register for tryouts, visit: www.ayso69.org and go to the “Our Programs” tab. Complete the registration, by selecting the 2022 EXTRA Program.
Registration must be complete prior to attending and those trying out, should arrive 10 minutes early to check in.
