OISRA Organizational Structure
We are a not-for-profit, board-governed corporation comprised of its member schools, both private and public.
See Board Members for the current board roster.
See Board Business for approved meeting minutes.
See Bylaws and Policies for current Bylaws and Policies.
We are structured such that the OISRA Board provides oversight for two separate Divisions within OISRA: the Alpine Division and the Nordic Division. [Freestyle is governed by the Alpine Division until a time that it has grown to have more than 100 participants.]
Alpine and Nordic Divisions
A school becomes a member of either the Alpine or the Nordic Division (or both), depending on the type of skiing their students enjoy. Each Division has a Steering Committee that provides guidance for all OISRA activities in that Division.
Alpine and Nordic Leagues
The schools in each Division are grouped into geographic Leagues that separately host events that are qualifying events for the state championships. The Head Coaches from each school in the League direct all the League activities.
Role of Head Coaches for Governing OISRA
The Head Coaches from each school are the voting members at the League level. They also select Division Steering Committee members and OISRA Board members. [ See the Organizational Chart. ]
OISRA is Affiliated with NFHS
We are an affiliate member of a national high school organization - National Federation of State High School Associations.
Acceptance into NFHS is based, in part, on the professionalism of our coaches, who meet the same training requirements as high school coaches for other sports.
