American Youth Soccer Organization Providing world class youth soccer programs that enrich children's lives.

Welcome to AYSO Newport Costa Mesa



EXTRA is a program that offers organized soccer for players who want to play at a more competitive level, a club like experience and still be a part of AYSO.

EXTRA is for 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. EXTRA doesn’t take away from the regular program, but adds to the strength of the organization by keeping players and their families in AYSO.

AYSO Region 97 determines the organization of EXTRA play to suit the needs and numbers of our players, 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.

An EXTRA player may not play on any other AYSO team during the same season, nor will they be eligible for All Star play.

'Players selected to the EXTRA Program will commit to their teams as their priority non-school activity. It is expected that every player attends each practice and game at the agreed upon times.

To satisfy the commitment required by the EXTRA Program, players may not be enrolled and participate in other Club or non-AYSO soccer programs during the EXTRA Program primary season.

Each EXTRA Team must provide have two volunteer coaches and volunteer two referees and earn sufficient referee points to participate in post-season play.

The EXTRA program uses single birth years to define age brackets and program description, use the following chart for Fall Season 2023.  EXTRA is an annual program running a Spring/Fall Season Calendar; March - February.  FY Age Brackets (U#) are set in Fall Season.
