is an AYSO pilot program started in 2010. EXTRA is a competitive soccer program designed to providea more challenging level of play for those players who possess the appropriate interest, skills, and abilities to compete at a higher level. Player development is a primary focus of EXTRA. The number of teams a Region fields in EXTRA is limited so as to not negatively impact the regular fall program with respect to qualified coaches and trained referees.
Teams compete in a gaming circuit administered by AYSO Section 10, competing against teams from other Regions within the Section. Typically, teams play a 10-12 game fall season followed by a League Cup. Play is conducted on both Saturdays and some Sundays with teams playing about 50% of their games at their host Region. Most EXTRA teams transition into tournament teams after League Cup.
