Cal South is proud to announce the addition of Nick Webster and Anthony Pisicoli as the new members of the Board of Directors. Both Webster and Pisicoli have already begun their duties in their new roles, with Webster serving as the Vice President of Adults, and Pisicoli as the District 4 Commissioner, serving Los Angeles County.
As Vice President of Adults, Webster will oversee the Adult Soccer program that includes the Cal South Adult State Cup, a tournament that has seen constant growth in recent years in Southern California.
Webster, a soccer personality and coach, former announcer, producer, director, and chief writer for Fox Soccer Channel and foxsoccer.com, holds a USSF A License, along with a Premier Diploma and Director of Coaching Diploma, in addition to an Advanced National Goalkeeping Diploma.
Additionally, he has an extensive career in coaching, ranging from youth soccer, inclusively with the Cal South ODP team, as well as high school, collegiate and USL level, including Cal FC, the first amateur team to have ever beaten an MLS team in the Lamar Hunt U.S Open Cup.
“I am thrilled to be joining the team here at Cal South as Vice President of Adult Soccer,” Webster said. “As a player and coach, I have experienced the beautiful game throughout the Southern California region, while as a broadcaster and writer I’ve been lucky enough to meet all my heroes and find out what makes them tick.”
He added, “As Vice President, my focus will be on creating vibrant, competitive and recreational leagues for both women and men. I will look to open up different pathways to the US Open Cup, make great pitches more affordable, and develop great relationships with our referees. The growth of the game here in Southern California is of paramount importance to me and I look forward to working with everyone who loves this game and creating magical moments that will last for decades.”
As the newly appointed District 4 Commissioner, Pisicoli will represent Los Angeles County in the Board of Directors and serve as an advisor to each affiliate member. Pisicoli joins Cal South with a vast experience in the world of youth soccer. Like many parents, Pisicoli was determined to leave a mark on the sport when his now 15-year-old daughter began playing at the age of three. Since then, he has coached at school, recreational, signature and competitive levels, has served on the Board of WAYS since 2012 as registrar and Chairman of the Board, has served as Director of Operations for Freedom FC West, and is also a certified Referee.
Outside of soccer, Pisicoli served as the Cultural Arts Commissioner for the City of Whittier, and is the Director of Risk Management for Do Lab. He has been married for 18 years, and he and his wife have one daughter.
“Our district is the largest population of the seven districts and is home to some of the best leagues, clubs and recreational programs in our region,” Pisicoli said. “I intend to work hard to represent our district. I will hit the ground running looking for ways to revitalize our Rec programs, where I believe player and coaching development begins. I will push for coaching education to become more accessible and affordable at the grassroots level.”
