Nonprofit governance focuses primarily on the fiduciary responsibility that a board of directors has with respect to the exercise of authority over the explicit public trust that is understood to exist between the mission of an organization and those whom the organization serves. Missouri Youth Soccer and each of our member organizations may have started as soccer organizations but we have thrived because we are nonprofits that have demonstrated to our community that we are here to serve a vital need – we believe in the game of soccer as a vehicle to create better people through the physical, mental, and emotional development that is fostered through our sport and our supporters.
As a nonprofit organization, Missouri Youth Soccer believes that good governance is founded upon bylaws that are shaped by nonprofit best practices while addressing the needs of our membership. Missouri Youth Soccer has a transparent, structured process which allows for members and the MYSA Board of Directors to propose & review bylaw changes. These changes exist so that we may provide a model document for our member organizations to use as they begin to address their own governing documents and to help Missouri Youth Soccer ensure that we continue to serve our mission through having clear, readable governing documents. The Missouri Youth Soccer Bylaws are always available on the website. Any proposed changes are able to made at the Annual General Meeting.
