CYSA appoints Debra Carlton local chair
of 2012 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup Event

California Youth Soccer Association (CYSA) has announced the appointment of Debra Carlton as the local Chair for the 2012 US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup event. This event, the culminating event for US Youth Soccer teams who have participated in the state and regional level of the Presidents Cup, was awarded to CYSA last May by the US Youth Soccer Association. The event will take place July 11-15 at the Cherry Island Soccer Complex in Sacramento.

CYSA Chairman Pete Zopfi commented, "Debra's organizational abilities and strong leadership skills will allow CYSA to provide an excellent experience to the US Youth Soccer National Presidents Cup competition in July 2012. As these top-level teams from around the United States come to visit Northern California and the Sacramento area for the first time, they will be greeted with a professional atmosphere created by Debra and her team of CYSA volunteers and staff."

With an eye for detail and organization, Debra brings a combination of business savvy and soccer knowledge to her new appointment. Debra currently volunteers as the President of the Elk Grove Youth Soccer League (EGYSL), one of the largest affiliate leagues within CYSA, and works for the California Apartment Association as Senior Vice President of Public Affairs. In addition to serving as EGYSL President, she has eight years of coaching experience and holds a CYSA ā€œDā€ License.
