Player Selection

Players will be selected after participation in a series of competitive, open tryouts, designed to test players’ skills and soccer acumen.  Anyone is welcome to attend the tryouts.  Tryouts will consist of skills tests and short sided games, and will be administered by independent, 3rd party trainers.

After the first round of open tryouts are complete, some players will be asked to attend a callback.  From this callback, 2nd tryout, the roster will be selected.

Coaches will observe tryouts and make recommendations of player selection, but the Region 20 Board will ultimately have the final decision on Extra rosters. Players who are not selected for Extra are encouraged to participate in the core AYSO Fall season and play spring with All Star and Spring Select teams. 


Team formation is subject to availability of sufficient number of qualified players and coaches.  Section 1 may also decide not to field a division for a given age group.  We anticipate the following divisions for girls and boys for Fall 2018:

Your child will be selected on the basis that he or she will not participate in a Club program while playing in the Extra Fall season, because the two programs require such high levels of commitment that a player on both a Club and an Extra team cannot satisfy his or her obligations to both teams. A player who joins a Club after being selected to participate on an Extra team should expect to lose his or her place on the Extra team.  Players selected for Extra teams are expected to make AYSO Soccer their first priority of extra-curricular sports activities.
