AYSO Region 16 North Torrance

Message from Region 16's Extra Coordinator

April 30, 2017


First of all, I want you to know we sincerely appreciate your interest in our Region 16 Extra Program. There will be several tryouts held beginning in April. For this 2017-18 Extra season, we will attempt to create a team for every division U9 through U14 for boys and girls. However, final team selection will depend on overall numbers received throughout our participating Areas.

For those of you not selected, after tryouts, we encourage you to participate in our regular core season and hopefully into our Select Program which can give you more experience and exposure for greater consideration the following year. The select teams for 2017-18 will begin forming as early as the second week of October.

For those of you selected, you will be contacted by the coach assigned to your division for further direction by the end of June. If you have not been contacted by July 1st, please feel free to email me directly to learn your status.

Regardless of whether you are selected for an EXTRA team, you still need to register. EXTRA fees are in addition to registration, so please take advantage of the early signup discounts. Thank you again for your interest in our program and I hope to see you tryout next season.

Introduction to AYSO Extra

This is your jumping off point to learn about the new AYSO Region 16 Extra Program.

The Extra Program begins practice in July and starts play in early September with weekly games played against other Extra teams from other Regions. The program will continue through the middle of December, with playoffs taking place in January and February.

The AYSO Region 16 Extra program is for more advanced players ages 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 looking for more competitive play and increased training. AYSO Extra will do this while retaining core AYSO values, including minimum playing time (Everyone Plays!) and a strong focus on player development.

  • Extra teams will be coached by highly qualified AYSO volunteer coaches.
  • Teams will receive training from professional trainers.
  • Teams will train twice a week and will play one or two games each weekend against similar teams mostly from AYSO Area 1D, 1F, & 1P. Half the games will be in Torrance, the other half on other teams' home fields.
  • Starting with our All-American Turkey Tournament, and throughout the winter and spring, Extra teams will be eligible to play in AYSO and Club tournaments.

Anyone can try out and trying out is free. However, all players participating in tryouts that are selected to play on an Extra Team must be registered in our Region 16 for the 2017-18 season. Tryouts will take place beginning in April. Participation in our Extra Program will be by invitation and will be sent following the completion of tryouts. Payment of fees will be due after your invitation acceptance.

The fee for the 2017 Fall Extra League Season is comprised of four components:

  • The regular 2017 season registration fee.
  • Players uniforms - 2 sets (Home & Away)
  • Field usage / Field permits

For more information and questions about the program not answered here, please email me at

Looking forward to a lot of fun ahead.

All the best,

Andre' McNeal
Extra Program Director
