As OSF's top level executive branch, the Central Board's role is to supervise the practice of obstacles sports worldwide.
It is composed of the IOSF President, the IOSF Secretary General and the IOSF Treasurer, the President of each Zone, 13 members elected by the Congress, according to a continent-based quota system (Africa= 2, Americas= 3, Asia= 2, Europe= 4, Oceania= 2), one representative of each recognized league and one athlete representative.
Each zone must include at least one female representative and one athlete representative, who can be the same person.
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, the Executive Committee and the Commissions that examine and advise on specific aspects of the sport.
The term of office of the Central Board is four years, beginning after the last day of each elective Congress. Elections for rotating terms begin the year after the closing ceremony of the first Olympics at which an IOSF Obstacle Sports medal event is held.
The Central Board reports to the IOSF Congress. It holds two ordinary meetings annually. If deemed necessary, the OSF President and Secretary General may also call extraordinary meetings.
