Regional Assessment Program
RAP for Short
The Regional Assessment Program is designed to recognize Regions for their successful implementation of AYSO programs in their local communities. Regions that actively support AYSO philosophies and policies, strive for constant improvement and demonstrate a commitment to training its volunteers, may be Regional Assessment Program (RAP) award winners.
Any Region can be a RAP award winner regardless of its size, age, or budget because AYSO is looking for the effective use of resources, quality delivery of services, and innovation. Both chartered and pilot regions may qualify for awards.
A Regional Assessment Award recognizes the success and dedication of the Regional Board and its volunteers. It also serves as a great planning tool for the next season!
