Make a Difference! Join the OYO Board for the 2025 Term!

Make a difference at OYO by sharing your time and talents with all 1000 families and 1600 players, who call OYO home for their baseball and softball experience every spring, summer and fall!

Even though, we’re not even halfway through the calendar year and the Spring Season is not yet complete, it’s never too early to look ahead. We’re less than 90 days away from our 2024 Elections at OYO — and the task is even more daunting than before as we’re adding a dozen new board positions, including three new executive board roles and nine board member positions.

So, more than ever, we’re seeking volunteers to eventually join a 50-position, 60-member Board of Directors — making it one of the largest youth sports all-volunteer board of directors in Central Indiana. If you enjoy giving back to the community and teaming up with friends from throughout OYO to create memorable experiences, then the 2025 OYO Board of Directors will be the place to be.

What’s the reward of being an OYO Board Member?

Being a board member is an honor and a privilege at OYO. We are fortunate to have a very diverse board. We have board members who have been involved for more than  20 years and some as recent as just a few months. We have board member representation from baseball and softball. We have some many from the rec league and some from the travel program, too. We have a nice balance between moms and dads, aunts and uncles and we also have a blend of those with children participating in the league and those who don’t and just enjoy giving back to a program that supported their family over the years.

So, why not you?

Dating back to our records from as early as 2002, nearly 300 individuals have volunteered their time and talents as board members to help ensure our ballplayers and families could truly enjoy their OYO experience each season. These are not just board colleagues, but friends outside of OYO, too. Being a board member is fun and rewarding, too. Each board member finds great satisfaction in rolling up their sleeves and jumping in the trenches to work with fellow board members who work tirelessly for the children and families of OYO. More importantly, we are just everyday moms and dads — like you — who have a ballplayer or two playing at OYO.

So, why not now? 

Just simply email the OYO President to express your interest in learning more about joining the OYO Board of Directors. Then, we’ll work with you to pair you with the role or need that best fits your interests. The chart below highlights the overall composition of the new board of directors organizational structure.

Elections for the 2024 OYO Board of Directors is Tuesday, September 10, 2024.

Thank you for your continued support and choosing OYO as your place for baseball and softball. Now, we hope you will answer this call and make OYO the beneficiary of your servant leadership efforts in 2024. Rest assured, more than 1200 families and nearly 2000 ballplayers will greatly appreciate the difference you make.

Join the Board!
