How Tryouts Work

Players should check in for their tryout session at least 15 minutes early. Each player needs fill out a Tryout Form when checking in. Players will be issued a pinnie and a number to attach to the pinnie. They will use the same number for all nights.

Tryout sessions will be approximately 60 minutes in length. They will be led by trainers. Players will be grouped according to age and gender. Independent evaluators will assess the players, and rate them on specific criteria including ball control, passing, shooting, trapping, game sense, and positional play. Players will also participate in short sided scrimmages. The highest rated players will be given the opportunity to register for the EXTRA team.

Players should anticipate that the tryouts will be competitive in nature, and not all players will make the team. Players who are not selected for an EXTRA team will be encouraged to play in the AYSO core program.


What to Bring to Tryouts

  • Completed EXTRA Program tryout form.
  • Full soccer kit (shorts, socks, shoes, shin guards, and age appropriate ball)
  • Water and sunscreen

    Please arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to check in and warm up.
