Press Release
September 08, 2011

The September 2011 issue of Cal South Soccer Magazine has just finished printing and should be hitting the mailboxes of all Cal South members registered for the Fall 2011-2012 season within the next week.

Featured on the cover of our Fall Kick-Off issue are the BU14 Fullerton Rangers as they hoist up the William J. "Billy" Goaziou Cup at the 2011 US Youth Soccer National Championships in Phoenix, Arizona in July. The Rangers were one of six teams from Cal South that won national titles this summer, all of whom are showcased in this issue. We not only have coverage and photos from the National Championships, but also of our three teams that won titles at the 2011 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup and our two teams that won 2011 United States Adult Soccer Association National Cup titles, including the Women's U-23 Eagles SC, who won their record fourth age-specific national championship title.

The big talk these days surrounding U.S. Soccer is player development (see our feature article in our May issue as well). For the September issue, we were interested in how the coaches of many of our teams that competed at the national championship level juggled the demands for their team to be instantly successful with the far more patient notion of developing players for future success throughout their lives, not just in the present. While Rangers coach Jimmy Obleda's thoughts on this topic are the focus of the feature article, we also posed a series of questions to several other coaches, including Corona Eagles coach Ernie Parra, So Cal Blues coach Dido Tshimanga, Slammers coach Walid Khoury and Albion coach Noah Gins. We hope you find their answers enlightening.

This issue also has a special ODP Spotlight section showing the success of Cal South Olympic Development Program players being chosen for the Regional and National Team pools and rosters for the coming year. The recent efforts of the Cal South TOPSoccer program are on display in a photo spread from this summer's Cal South/JUSA TOPSoccer Fest. We also have a spotlight feature on Cal South referees who have succeeded throughout the summer months at the national and international level of officiating. We also have the latest news about other Cal South programs, partnerships and initiatives in our Member Central section. Plus, there is plenty of fun to be had in our Cal South Pulse, Where in the World and Hot Shot features too!

Cal South members should also be sure to look for a special, reusable membership discount card from Sports Authority on page 5 of this issue, which is good for 15% off your entire purchase at any Sports Authority outlet. Just one of the benefits of being a Cal South member… and in receiving Cal South Soccer Magazine!
