EXTRA Program Overview

Glenview AYSO's EXTRA Program



  • A travel-style soccer program with AYSO-trained volunteer coaches who are partnered with professional soccer trainers.
  • A more challenging quality soccer, at a less challenging cost than Club Travel programs. Just as important, it's designed to be FUN. A higher level of competition should never prevent players from enjoying themselves—the AYSO way.
  • Players are rostered on the EXTRA team AND the primary core team (i.e. house team) and participate fully with both teams in the Fall and Spring
  • Games are played against opponents from EXTRA program throughout the northern Chicago metro area, where scores are recorded, divisional standings are tracked and a championship playoff is conducted in the spring.


Who are the coaches and trainers?
The EXTRA coaches are parent volunteers with significant coaching experience. Volunteer Coaches are trained under AYSO’s coaching program, the only youth soccer coaching program accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education.
Additionally, the professional coaches run a dedicated practice each week and attend and analyze games to be used on subsequent training plans.

Who do we play?
Game play is inter-regional. Glenview plays matches at home and travels to locations in the north Chicagoland area, such as Deerfield, Skokie, Evanston and Rogers Park.

What is the cost?
Participants pay the the regular core program cost and an additional EXTRA program fee for extra.

When is the season?
Games are played on Sundays after 4:00 pm. The Fall and Spring season mirrors the regular AYSO season. Practices being in August and games run into November. Play resumes in the Spring.

What is the time commitment for practice?
Training sessions are once per week for up to 2 hours. Training sessions are typically held in the middle part of the week within the 4:30-7:30pm time range. Players are expected to attend both EXTRA practice session and house team practice each week.
