Without a dedicated group of board members, Yucaipa's soccer program would not be what it is today. We want you to know that each board member is committed to every players social, emotional and physical development within our soccer organization.
YVYSO's board is always looking for additional volunteers who may be willing to step up to continue Yucaipa's soccer program into the future. Anyone considering running for a Board position should obtain a copy of the by-laws, available by clicking HERE or at the voting table towards the end of the Fall Season.
YVYSO's by-laws have a detailed description of each position and its responsibilities. It is extremely important for each candidate to understand the commitment and dedication that is expected. YVYSO is looking for motivated individuals who are willing to put their personal agendas aside so that we can continue to maintain our motto of “Family, friends, fun . . . one goal at a time!” This simple statement is the core of the strong values and tradition that YVYSO is known for and which it has grown from.
Familiarize yourself with each board member below as well as putting a face to a name. Feel free to say "HELLO" next time you see one of us. If you are comfortable with it, I am sure some would enjoy hugs and kisses as well, particularly our President and Vice-President.
NOTE: Interested in becoming a future board member? Drop the President an email, go to contact info page and fill out a request, speak to one of the current board members during a weekend game (at the main tent) or read up more about it on our "by-laws" page and we will get back to you on the process.
