About the Extra Program


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. It enhances that 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.

The Board of Directors of Region 112 is committed to developing a world-class competitive soccer program that is focused on providing a more challenging environment and enhancing the training and development for our more serious soccer players. All interested players will attend a try-out in the Fall and/or Spring each year, where they will be evaluated by an assessment team.

Players who are chosen to participate, will be notified shortly after the last try-out. Players who are not chosen for one of the EXTRA teams, will be placed on a core team in the Fall season. Unlike the core program Fall season, EXTRA teams will be formed for a one year period competing against other EXTRA teams throughout Area 1.


PLAYER DEVELOPMENT PATHWAY




HOW ARE AYSO EXTRA TEAMS ORGANIZED? 

Selection to Extra teams are based on open and fair evaluations. Teams are chosen to create a competitive balance. In addition, AYSO's Core Philosophies are still in place and all of our Extra players will play at least 50% of each game. A fair amount of play time for ALL of our EXTRA players is incredibly important to AYSO and AYSO 112. 11 in both the Fall season as well as tournament play in the Spring and early Summer. program is geared toward the top 10-20% of players in each division.

PARENTS AND PLAYERS

Participation in the EXTRA program requires a higher level of commitment from both parents and players. Unlike the standard recreational program(s) the Region offers, the EXTRA program demands more time and commitment and needs to be the player's primary sports commitment.

Players who participate in the EXTRA program cannot play in another competitive soccer program (i.e. Club). Your attendance at all team functions (practices, games, tournaments, and other events) is not only expected, but it is critical to a successful season. Parents and players are expected to adhere to all rules and regulations, the Philosophies of AYSO, and conduct themselves in an appropriate manner both on and off the pitch and treat others with respect.

FAQS

FAQs for the Extra Program

What is the Season Game Schedule Like for Extra? 
The game schedule is very similar to that of the regular Fall season.  Games may start in August and run through December. Most games are on Saturdays but sometimes games may need to be played on Sundays as well.  Extra plays approximately half of their games in other regions around the Inland Empire, Orange County, Los Angeles, and San Diego counties. 

Will Extra Team Players Have Fall or Spring Team Conflicts? 
No. Extra teams are formed after the Fall or Spring team seasons are over.  Players will never have to choose between the two.

Can an Extra player play on a Fall or Spring Core Team? 
No. A player is only allowed to play in one program.  Extra teams require a higher level of commitment that is difficult to maintain if a player is on multiple teams.

How Many Tournaments do Extra Teams Participate In? 
There is no limit but most teams play between 4-6 tournaments in Spring and 1-3 tournaments in Fall/Winter.

WHAT'S NEW FOR AREA 1 EXTRA?

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EXTRA DEVELOPMENTAL SOCCER LEAGUE (SCEDSL)

Teams will now participate in The Southern California Extra Developmental Soccer League (SCEDSL) a gaming circuit designed to support the AYSO EXTRA Programs (“EXTRA”) being offered in AYSO Sections 1, 10 and 11.

  • The SCEDSL’s purpose is to create gaming circuits that have been optimized to provide teams the best possible experience, without the historic restrictions related to section boundaries. It may include gaming circuits for 9U, 10U, 11U, 12U, 13U, 14U, 15U and 16U age divisions (both boys and girls). It includes a Fall season, a Post Season tournament, and a Spring season.
  • RC's & Extra Coordinators should review the SCEDSL Guidelines for more information, including revised Player & Coach Eligibility, Regional Support, Game Scheduling, The SCEDSL State Cup Tournament, and the Program Calendar. 

Extra Coordinator

Name and Age:  Brian Kuramoto, 51years.

Place of Birth:  Bellflower, CA  

Coaching Qualifications/Education:  National E license/AYSO Intermediate; Regional Referee, US Soccer 7v7 and 9v9 license

Coaching Experience:  I’ve been coaching soccer for over 12 years. I coached several age groups both in recreation, all stars, select and club.  I have 5 years of experience coaching club teams for the Temecula Hawks now Legends and have coached in AYSO La Verne/San Dimas for 4 plus years.  I’ve had the privilege of coaching the 2022/23 all-star /select team for the 10U girls where we placed in the top 3 throughout the season and am the current coach for the 2014 girls’ extra team. 

Soccer Philosophy: In the same way that students move through a textbook in school, our players will also follow a path from simple to complex. We understand that players can handle less when they are young and more when they have matured mentally and physically. The most foundational element is a player’s ability to control the body and the ball. Dribbling and skillful touches on the ball are necessary before moving up the ladder to the other components of the game. Like a math teacher building a foundation of basic math, arithmetic, and algebra prior to teaching calculus, we understand that soccer players must build a firm foundation of ball control before they reach what the game will look like when we watch it at the highest level.
