5/28/2022: Greetings AYSO Parents!
We are excited to announce next season's EXTRA program is getting underway.  We will have a skills evaluation for players and a parents meeting Saturday June 4th at 9:30 am at Adams Elementary (near sheds with evaluation on field 151).  Kids should come prepared for play by wearing cleats, shin guards, and bringing water. We anticipate the evaluation lasting about 2 hours.

Who is eligible?
All athletes who will be entering 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th next academic year, both boys and girls.

What is EXTRA?
EXTRA is a soccer program for athletes and families that are looking to get more touches on the ball and playing against some more advanced competition than what they experience in the AYSO CORE program. All participants must enroll in both CORE (the traditional Saturday morning games at Adams) and EXTRA. If you participate in the EXTRA program, please realize that it is, well, extra soccer, meaning extra practice and extra games.  It will also involve travel, as the leagues we play in will have teams throughout the Mid-Southern Willamette Valley. For EXTRA families, Saturdays can get quite busy, so please think about your comfort level with committing to the program.

While we would love to have everyone who wants to play be able to, there are limitations in the size of rosters for EXTRA teams. The skills evaluation will help coaches and coordinators get a feel for the abilities of the athletes in order to help determine if EXTRA is appropriate for your athlete.  If we have enough interest at a particular age, we may be able to recruit more coaches and form more teams.

If your child is interested in EXTRA please fill out the interest sheet and waiver (here). Please also let us know if you are interested in coaching an EXTRA team this year.

We hope to be able to answer as many questions at the parents meeting/skills evaluation on the 4th. We are looking forward to seeing you then.

We are still working on many of the details, but if you are interested in participating please sign up soon.  SIGNUP HERE.  Some practices will be occurring over the summer and final team formation likely taking place in August. If your child is selected to join an EXTRA team, and you are able to participate, there will be an additional fee of $150 dollars.  In some instances, scholarships will be available to help defray costs.   Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.  Brian Dolan - Extra Coordinator (Contact him here).
