La Quinta- Section 1 / Area H / Region 443


AYSO is a non-profit, all volunteer organization. As such, there are no paid positions within the organization. AYSO 443 strictly forbids any affiliated individual in a volunteer position from requesting or receiving any form of compensation for services provided. Any breach of this policy will result in disciplinary action from the board of AYSO 443.

LQ Region 443 requires each player to play at least three (3) quarters of the game. No player should sit out two quarters until all players have sat out one quarter. Violation of this rule will result in forfeiture of the game. If there is an injury or player leaves it is your responsibility to have the AR note that on the game card. AYSO philosophy states that everyone plays.
