2. Fulfill all the requirements + Observations by staff members of all team members including the parents.
3. Team adult volunteers which are fully trained and certified* Competence requires minimum 60% game experience.
4. Child development and fun promoted over "win at all cost."

It is a plus for teams which promote volunteering as AYSO cannot continue without sufficient volunteers.
Region-73 supports a team which can make a good impression at all invitational tournaments.

Below is an example but not a limited check list when board members monitor and evaluate a team:

- Cheering for players and show respect for volunteers and the game.

- Each referees must work at least 7 - 9 games in the season and show competence officiating games. 
- All referees must be fully job trained and certified*

- Contact parents each week and listen to concerns, ensure players bring all necessary gear, water & snacks.
- Have AYSO line up cards ready 20 min before game time and hand these to coach and/or Referee
- Call team referees each week to thank them for their work and remind them to sign up for the next games.

Certification requires competence in the job and completing all Safety courses.
