Extra Program Information:
What is AYSO Extra?
AYSO Extra is a competitive soccer program with its own inter-regional gaming circuit designed to provide a more challenging level of play for those players who possess the appropriate interest, skills and abilities necessary to compete at a higher level.
If your soccer player is a competitive player, with great soccer skills and wants to play on a better team in more competitive games with a Great Coach, Professional Trainers, and Better Referee's, then the Quartz Hill Extra Program may be just what you're looking for.
Why is AYSO Extra a better option than club soccer for competitive players?
- 1. Low cost - less than half the cost of a club program.
- 2. Everyone Plays (3/4 play) - no one sits on the bench, all players play 3/4 of the game.
- 3. Trainers - to help players better develop their technical skills, tactical abilities and fitness. Professional Soccer Trainers are provided to help coaches.
- 4. Player Development - setting a clear path to help players achieve realistic goals and realize their potential while having fun and learning the game of soccer.
- 5. Positive Coaching - certified, experienced and knowledgeable coaches who are positive, instructive and encouraging with the players.
- 6. Well Trained Quality Referees - who are mindful of player safety and who referee for the love of the game, not a paycheck.
When does AYSO Extra Start?

Extra Play Schedule
The Extra Schedule runs along with the Fall AYSO core Program and starts around the same weekend and runs a 10 game schedule. With 5 Home games at Quartz Hill and 5 Road games in neighboring cities TBA. Over the last couple seasons we have traveled to Saugus, Valencia, Bakersfield, Palmdale, Thousand Oaks, Moorpark, Granada Hills, Agoura Hills, Newbury Park, Canyon Country, Sherman Oaks, Simi Valley, Camarillo, & Fillmore.
After the 10 game season, the top Extra Teams advance to a League Cup Tournament style 3 game weekend. If your team wins the League Cup, they are invited to the State Finals.
After the Extra Program concludes, these same Extra Teams can form into Tournament Teams and continue into Spring as a Tournament Team. Then the same players can come try out for Extra again the next season and possibly stay together for many seasons. This can keep a Team together from August - June and then repeat.
