NOTE: As of 2017-2018, the OACA will no longer provide a hard copy of the Oregon Coaches Directory as a benefit with OACA membership. Cost of production and distribution continues to rise, and our Board voted to provide an online directory for membership. Beginning in August our website will feature an online directory with school and athletic administration contact information, as well as a list of all head coaches. If requested, we can provide contact information for the direct purchase of a hard copy directory from Rich Taylor, Publisher of the Oregon Coaches Directory.
