Tustin AYSO Region 96

Tustin Fire (EXTRA)


Tustin Fire (EXTRA) teams are highly-competitive select teams for divisions 10U-16U.  

How to play on a Fire EXTRA team: Interested players should attend tryouts held in February and March. Tryouts are open to core, returning EXTRA players, club players, and any interested player who would like to be considered for placement on team. The Player Review panel will review and approve player selection. Player status (selected, not selected) is sent to player family via email by late April.

How to coach a Fire EXTRA team:
Interested coaches should complete the Fire EXTRA Head Coach application that is posted in January. The APP Coach Review panel will review and approve coach selection. Application is open to core, returning EXTRA coaches, and any interested coach who would like to be considered for placement on team. Application status (selected, not selected) is sent to applicant by via email BEFORE the first tryout in February. 

Decision made by the coach and/or the player eview panel is not subject to appeal. 

The primary season is in Fall, although many EXTRA teams begin training and attend tournaments in summer.  During the Fall season, Tustin Fire EXTRA players may not participate in the Fall core program and may not play for another club soccer team.

Tustin Fire teams compete in the AYSO Section 11 EXTRA Circuit against other Regions' EXTRA teams.  Post-season playoffs are in December and January.  Teams that win the EXTRA post-season Champions Cup tournament advance to the Western State Championships in mid-March.

Many Fire teams continue to play during the "Spring Select" season from March through May.

2018 Fire EXTRA Head Coach Application

Head Coaches must reapply each year for consideration to coach a Fire EXTRA team. There are many factors that contribute to the selection of Fire EXTRA coaches.  All coaches are expected to be properly certified and trained (see reference below), but must also abide by AYSO Philosophies and act as positive role models and Coach Ambassadors. Other considerations may include level of dedication in supporting Tustin AYSO's mission, the coach's conduct at practices/games, commitment to following Region, Area Q, Section 11 and National guidelines and policies, ability to support volunteer recruitment, organization and communication skills, leadership qualities, the coach's standing within the Region, other experience (soccer, other youth sports, etc.), input from other board/region staff about the coach, and disciplinary concerns which may include interaction with referees, coaches, and/or administration staff.

Area Q AYSO Coach Requirements
REQUIRED COACHING CERTIFICATIONS: Clear Background check, Safe Haven, CDC Concussion, Division Specific Coaching Certification, Division Specific Coaching Certification (one additional level) and Regional Referee Certification.
Note: If a coach applicant does not have all requirements completed, a plan must be proposed. If candidate is selected, the plan must be completed before league season begins or an alternate candidate will be selected. 

The application is now closed. Coach applicants have been notified of decision. Thank you to those who applied.
