Umbrella Initiative Covers Optional Player Programs
AYSO FLEX™ is the umbrella initiative for optional player opportunities that enable AYSO Regions, Areas and Sections to choose player programs that best serve their local needs.
Programs under the FLEX™ umbrella include opportunities for different competitive levels, ages and abilities. FLEX programs currently include EXTRA™, for players that want a more challenging soccer environment; VIP, for players with disabilities; U-5, a pressure-free opportunity for four year olds and the Special U-16/U-19 Program for our teenagers.
Additional optional programs in the exploratory stages include a high level player development opportunity for our most motivated players and a "parent and me" type program for our youngest ones.
All AYSO FLEX™ programs embrace the Six Philosophies of AYSO, including Everyone Plays®, Balanced Teams, Open Registration, Positive Coaching, Good Sportsmanship and Player Development.
AYSO EXTRA™ Offers Extra Challenge
EXTRA™ is a new program that provides registered AYSO players opportunity for a more challenging playing environment during the primary AYSO season.
Teen Program Adapts To Local Needs
