Cal South Names Jeff Dyrek as New Chief Executive Officer

Anaheim, CA (May 21, 2024) – After a prolonged search, Cal South Soccer (California State Soccer Association – South) officially announced today the naming of Jeff Dyrek as the organization’s new Chief Executive Officer, effective immediately.

Dyrek steps into the role after over twenty years of experience in the sports management field, including fifteen years working within sports governance, mostly for National Governing Bodies. These include a stint with USA Triathlon as their National Events Director; as the Director of Marketing for USA Water Polo; and as the Chief Executive Officer for USA Badminton. Dyrek’s new role serves as a homecoming for him to Cal South, as he previously served over a decade ago as their Director of Tournaments and Competition.


“We are thrilled to welcome Jeff Dyrek to the Cal South team,” said Cal South Board Chair, Nick Webster. “Jeff brings a wealth of experience and know-how within the world of non-profit sports organizations. We firmly believe this fresh start will turbocharge the organization as we embark on a decade of incredible soccer at both the youth and adult levels.”

Dyrek’s experience in the sports management field is vast, encompassing nearly every corner of the industry, including membership acquisition and expansion, event management, marketing, business development, sanctioned and corporate events, tournaments, operations, strategic partnerships, and corporate sponsorships. His vision is focused on the excellence and satisfaction for members, both youth and adult, on their journey through the sport.


“This is an exciting opportunity and time to get involved with Cal South,” said Dyrek. “I look forward to working with our board of directors and staff to develop initiatives to create opportunities for players of all ages at all levels of play.”
