Central Board

As World OCR's top level executive branch, the Central Board's role is to supervise the practice of obstacles sports worldwide. It is composed of the President, the Vice President, the Secretary General and the Treasurer, the President of each Continental Confederation and 13 additional members of the Continental Confederations. Continental Confederation representatives must include at least one female. The Central Board may also co-opt additional members (with voting rights) for the vision, skill and special expertise that they will bring to the sport. 


The Central Board appoints the Secretary General, and the Deputy Secretary General. The term of office of the Central Board is four years, beginning after the last day of each elective Congress.
