Our Leadership

The leadership of the USPSA helps to guide our organization as we grow, while never losing sight of our commitment to power soccer athletes.

Without the dedication of our leadership team, the United States Power Soccer Association would not be able to accomplish our mission. It’s a delicate balancing act between ensuring that our established teams have the opportunity to play at the highest level of international competition, while also welcoming brand new athletes, volunteers, and coaches into the sport. But thanks to the work of our leadership, we never lose sight of our mission, or the core values that make us strong. Below, you can read more about the team of people that never take their eyes off the ball.

Mission Statement:
The mission of the United States Power Soccer Association (USPSA) is to provide persons with physical disabilities using power chairs the opportunity to play, learn, and compete in the sport of power soccer. The USPSA governs the sport of Power Soccer in the United States. The USPSA promotes the sport on a national and international level through tournament play, referee certification, training and continued growth.

Executive Vice President

Nathan Mayer

read bio ❯❯

Nathan’s power soccer journey started when he was playing in a recreation t-ball tournament when someone approached him and his family asking them if they have ever heard of power soccer. From the first time he put on a guard and touched a ball, Nathan fell in love and finally got to bring out his competitive nature. He was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy Type 2 at eight months of age. Nathan has had the opportunity to compete at many different levels of power soccer in the USPSA and FIPFA from the early days of Division II to the international level with Team USA. He, alongside his teammates, has won four National Championships, two of them being Premier Cup Championships. With his perfectionist mentality, Nathan spends many hours in the gym fine-tuning every part of his game. This 15-year journey has meant so much to Nathan as it is more than just his journey, but the people around him that he is representing that means so much to Nathan. The opportunity to grow the sport is a very exciting opportunity for Nathan! He has big dreams for what this sport can be!

When Nathan is not in the gym, he is spending time with family as family is very important to Nathan. He is also studying to obtain my Bachelor of Science in Product Design at the University of Minnesota and is doing some freelance design work on the side. God, Family, sports/life!
