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.

Jim Labas

read bio

Jim first became involved with Power Soccer in 2006 when the sport was demonstrated at Turnstone Center in Fort Wayne. He and his son Luke were taken by the sport and both jumped at the chance to be involved. He as a coach and Luke as an athlete. Power Soccer has been a family event as Jim has been the head coach of a Turnstone team for the past 12 years and his son Luke who continues to play. They have enjoyed a past national title and most recently a 3rd place finish at the 2017 national tournament. Luke’s older brother Sam also coaches and is married to Tiffany who plays for Turnstone.

We have seen the power of this sport and the positive impact it has on athletes and their families. From four athletes in Fort Wayne the first year, there are now fourteen participants and still room to grow. The opportunity to grow the sport is a driving force behind Jim’s involvement with the board of USPSA. In addition he has served on the board of Turnstone for the past 5 years. He is employed by Weaver Popcorn Company in sales and has been married to his wife Jan for 34 years. They live in Fort Wayne and together they have five children.
