Board of Directors
Volunteer to Serve
Our Board and District Directors exist to support the mission of the OYSA by directing policies that will carry youth soccer in Oregon for decades to come.
This is a tremendous opportunity for volunteers who want to influence and shape our programs for years to come. We have several open positions on our board and in our districts, and we need more dedicated, passionate volunteers to help us steer Oregon youth soccer into the future.
