Ventura’s AYSO Region 39 will hold upcoming tryouts for its boys’ 12U and girls’ 14U EXTRA teams in April.

The boys’ 12U tryouts, for players born 2007 and 2008, will be Sun., April 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Huntsinger Park, 1198 S Saticoy Ave., Ventura.

The girls’ 14U tryouts, for players born 2005 and 2006, will be Sun., April 22 from 2 to 4 p.m. at Huntsinger Park.

Region 39 plans to have two girls’ teams, with 14 players per team, but may decide to limit it to one squad depending on the number of girls that tryout. There will only be one boys’ 12U team.

Please RSVP to EXTRA program coordinator Daniel Wolowicz at [email protected] with child’s name, date of birth and contact information of parent or guardian. Registration fees and details will follow.

Some key differences between EXTRA and the core AYSO program are:

Tryouts are required. Cost is about $250 per player. Level of play is more competitive than the core program. Teams can stay together from one season to the next. Travel is required, as teams play other EXTRA squads in neighboring cities. EXTRA teams can also compete in tournaments in the spring.

Should a child not make the team or should the team not play due to too few teams in Area 10W, players will still be eligible—and are encouraged—to play in AYSO’s regular fall season.
