April and May 2017 Tryout Announcement
Are you looking for an opportunity for you child to grow and develop their soccer skills and play in a slightly more advanced competitive environment? If so, you'll want to try out for our Extra Program this week: Saturday April 29th and Monday May 1st. We are excited to grow our program beyond the 4 teams we had last year. The Extra program is geared to those players and families who want a higher level of competition and training, while still enjoying the guidelines provided under the tenets of AYSO.
We apologize for the extermely short notice, but we're navigating these tryouts around several other events, as well as volunteer and field space availability.
We encourage all players who are interested to attend the following tryouts based on their birth years.
BOYS- Birth Years 2005 - 2009:
Sat 4/29 from 10am-11am and
Mon 5/1 from 530-630pm
GIRLS - Birth Years 2004 - 2009:
Sat 4/29 from 11am-12noon and
Mon 5/1 from 630-730pm
Location: Hasley Canyon Park (28700 West Quincy St, Castaic CA 91384)
Please arrive 20-30 minutes in advance to sign-up and warm-up. Please come prepared in proper gear (cleats, shin guards, water, etc).
We're excited to offer such a program and look forward to seeing your children tryout.
If your child can not attend one of these sessions but is interested in playing in this program, please email CastaicExtra@Gmail.com
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).
