EXTRATM is a program that offers organized soccer for players who want to play at a more competitive level. Club soccer teams are in place in many parts of the country, but for those who want to play harder and still be a part of AYSO, EXTRATM is perfect.
EXTRATM gives athletes whose interests and abilities lead them to a more progressive soccer experience. You can feel secure knowing your child is part of a trusted organization and will be given fair playing time. EXTRATM doesn’t take away from the regular program, but adds to the strength of the organization by keeping players and their families in AYSO.
Your Region determines the organization of EXTRATM play to suit its needs and numbers, but AYSO’s core philosophies are still in place: everyone on the team plays at least 50 percent of each game; selection to teams is based on open and fair evaluations; and the teams are chosen to create a competitive balance.
EXTRATM players that also participate in the primary program at the same time can participate fully with both teams as well as All Star, tournament, National Games, and travel teams. Players playing only on an EXTRATM team are eligible for tournament, travel or other secondary program teams.
EXTRATM can only be offered in areas with a regular AYSO program and is coordinated with the support of local leadership. No paid coaches or referees are allowed. All AYSO standards for training and certification for coaches and referees are in place.
