Governance

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.
