Extra Program FAQ
What is AYSO Extra?
AYSO Extra is a soccer program that is geared to those players who want a higher level of competition and training but do not want to play Club soccer. Extra teams will be formed by several regions in Area C. The Extra teams will play against each other during the fall & Spring soccer season.

Region 515’s goal will be to form at least one Extra team for each of the Boys and Girls in the U10 and U12. U14 will currently be CoEd.

The teams will be coached by qualified, certified volunteer coaches. Coach selections will be announced shortly after interviews are complete.

The Fall & Spring season will begin practicing in August (like we do for the regular AYSO season) with regular season running through November and resuming in the spring in March through the end of April.
What is the time commitment for practice?
Practices will be twice a week for 90 minutes each practice session beginning in August.
Will there be tournaments after the Fall Break & Spring Season?
Yes. Extra teams will be allowed to apply for in season tournaments and AYSO invitational tournaments which will take place during November through June. The cost to enter into each of these tournaments may run $40 to $50 per player per tournament, paid by each player on the team. This is not funded by the region. Each team will be required to turn in ALL tournament fees to Region prior to the registration of any tournament.
How do players get chosen for the Extra team?
Players who are interested in playing on an Extra team should attend the tryouts which are posted on the website. Players need to show up for the tryouts with the documentation listed on the tryout form.
How will a player register for the team?
Region 515 is a Concurrent EXTRA program all EXTRA players will play on dual teams(Standard/Core & EXTRA). Players who are selected for the Extra team will be required to register for the 2016/2017 Standard Core & Extra Fall/Spring Season. Players are expected to pay their registration fee as soon as they are selected to ensure they are committed to the team, no later than two weeks after selections. Players will likely be scheduled for two games every Saturday during the regular season.
Will the Extra program utilize the ¾ play rule?
Yes. All players who regularly attend practice and are committed to the team will play at least ¾ of every game. For those players that habitually miss practice or games, the coach has the discretion to only play them for ½ of the game. Lack of commitment to the team for one season may hinder a player’s chances of making the team the following year.
