League America Recreational Soccer Symposium a Success in Long Beach
Apr. 30th event premiered “The New Cal South” rebranding & focus

LONG BEACH, Calif. (May 9, 2022) – Representatives from many Cal South Affiliate Member leagues and clubs gathered together last Saturday, April 30, for the 2022 Cal South League America Recreational Soccer Symposium at the Long Beach Renaissance Hotel.

The primary purpose of the Symposium was for Cal South –– a state association of US Youth Soccer –– to create a public forum built around USYS’s recently announced League America recreational soccer initiative, meant to provide value and resources for recreational club members.

To support the League America initiative, Cal South staffers and invited partners presented a series of talks around such topics as coaching education, player development, application demos, registration training, referee education, DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Integrity, and Belonging), and mental performance.

The opening portion of the event was the unveiling by Cal South CEO Terry Fisher of Cal South’s new corporate look and logo, by way of officially introducing the crowd to the concept of “the New Cal South,” a key rebranding effort for the organization that will continue to ramp up as it nears its 50th state soccer association anniversary year in 2024.

“This Symposium was a marvelous opportunity for Cal South to get the message of its redefined focus and integrity before its members,” said Fisher post-show. “The phrase ‘the New Cal South’ is not just attitude or words; it can only be defined in the minds of our members by our continued action in presenting to them the best programs, the best competitions, and the best customer service. We held this Symposium to show them what we have to offer, and we will deliver it to them and more.”

Following the stage presentation, the Symposium finished the show by breaking the room into individual discussion tables divided by topics. Guests of the event were able to sit down and openly discuss these topics with Cal South directors and staffers, and to share their questions and receive answers directly from experts on the topic.
