Extra-United Programs

In addition to our “core” program, Castaic AYSO has two programs for players who are looking for a higher level of play:EXTRA and United (formerly “Challenge”). Participation on these teams requires a higher level of commitment and travel from the players and from the parents.

  • “Core” program practices and games are held here in Castaic.
  • “Extra” teams practice in Castaic, and compete in Castaic and other cities such as Bakersfield and Camarillo.
  • “Challenge” teams practice in different Santa Clarita locations, and games are played in Santa Clarita and throughout Southern California.


The primary benefits of these teams include:

  • A more competitive program
  • Affordable registration fees compared to club-affiliated teams
  • Top trained coaches and referees
  • Positive coaching
  • Opportunity for tournament play
  • Opportunity to play for the same coach and with the same teammates each year (depending on outcome of tryouts).
