The Oregon Interscholastic Ski Racing Association (OISRA) was born in 1961 as a high school alpine ski racing organization with just a few schools scattered throughout Oregon and a handful of alpine ski racers. Today OISRA also includes the sports of Freestyle and Nordic, and the governing structure of OISRA now has two separate DIVISIONS: Alpine and Nordic.
The Alpine Division will govern the sport of Freestyle until a time when it has grown to have more than 100 Freestyle participants; then Freestyle will become structured as an independent OISRA Division.
The ALPINE DIVISION currently organizes 51 teams, which are listed on the Alpine Teams page.
Designated Head Coaches are the voting members of OISRA. Head coaches may be designated by a school, a parent group, or a community club.
The Designated Alpine Head Coaches govern the OISRA by nominating and selecting representatives to the OISRA Board of Directors.
The Designated Alpine Head Coaches govern the Alpine Division through representation on the Alpine Steering Committee.
This permanent committee develops the operating plans for the Alpine Division and provides oversight for all Alpine Division activities.
Designated Head Coaches also direct all activities at the League level.
All OISRA coaches who are NOT designated Head Coaches are ASSOCIATE member coaches (non-voting).
Coaches, parents, and other volunteers provide the workforce for all the high school Alpine Division activities.
The program season is the same as the OSAA winter sports season - starting in early November and going through early March.
