OYA Mission Statement


The goal of OYA Boys Programs is to enhance the quality of life for the youth of our community, by striving to provide quality baseball, basketball, and volleyball leagues, where players can learn and develop fundamentals, skills, and good sportsmanship.


Orland Youth Association for Boys aspires to be an outstanding educational-athletic organization that provides a high-quality experience to every athlete. A high-quality experience is one in which every athlete

• Is coached using the principles of Positive Coaching • Has fun playing the game • Feels like an important part of the team regardless of performance • Learns “life lessons” that have value beyond the playing field • Learns the skills, tactics and strategies of the game and improves as a player

We recognize that the coach is the one who most directly makes this all possible. It is our goal to provide every coach with tools to be able to be successful as a Double-Goal Coach. We are committed to creating a positive culture in which coaches, parents, fans, officials and athletes work together to achieve our mission.”


Coach Duties and Responsibilities


We, as members of OYA Boys Programs (OYA), believe that our work has a direct impact on the youth we coach and an important impact on the quality of life in our community. To demonstrate our dedication to the children and families in our community, we commit ourselves to the following values and rules of conduct.


An OYA Coach acts as an official representative of OYA who is required and trusted to work within the rules established by the OYA Board of Directors. The basic duties of a coach include:


-          providing positive instruction and guidance for the youth;

-          maintaining a positive team attitude and team concept throughout the season;

-          overall management of the day to day activities of the team (as defined in the OYA Rule Book for each sport); and

-          adherence to all OYA established rules and Board decisions, throughout the season


A Coach shall perform all of their duties impartially, without favor or ill will and without regard to status, sex, race, or religion. All players and parents will be treated equally and with courtesy, consideration, and dignity.


Coaches shall conduct themselves in such a manner as to inspire confidence and respect for the position of trust they hold. Coaches will never allow personal feelings, animosities, or friendships to influence their conduct.


Coaches shall perform their duties with integrity and always maintain a professional disposition. Integrity is defined as being honest, moral, upright, and sincere. We believe that integrity is the basis for trust within the OYA community; therefore, we can only coach effectively to the extent that we are credible, individually, and as an association.

Any deviation from the OYA rules and policies in an effort to win games, or any unsportsmanlike conduct by managers, coaches, parents, or players, will not be tolerated. Such actions are subject to a board committee hearing, and may result in suspension or ejection from the league, for those individuals involved.
