In power soccer, every athlete has a role to play within the team. Offensive or defense, goalie or kicker, each player must fulfill their own responsibility while advancing the goal of the team. In the same way, the goals of the USPSA are advanced by our individual committees. Each committee has a specific mission and purpose within the organization, but together they all work toward our greater goals.
We hope you’ll take some time learning about the committees that make our work possible, and the individuals who dedicate so much of themselves to our success.
