EXTRA is designed to provide a more challenging level of play for those players who possess the appropriate interest, skills and abilities and to enhance each player's experience and individual growth through the game of soccer while retaining the spirit and organization of AYSO. The goal of EXTRA is to strengthen AYSO by retaining players and volunteers in additional primary programs operated under the AYSO philosophies.

About the Program
Jurupa Region 462 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 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. Unlike the standard Fall season, EXTRA teams will be formed for a one year period and compete against other EXTRA teams through the Inland Empire. This program is geared toward the top 10-20 percent 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 (ie. 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.
For the upcoming season, we will have teams separated by birth year to remain compliant with US Soccer's player development initiatives.
Children born in 2009 will be 9-U (nine and under)
(Please note: Children born in 2010 or later are not eligible to participate in or try out for Extra for the 2017-18 season)
