    Re: Heather Dobrott vs. David Arciniega / Garland Soccer Association / US Youth Soccer / North Texas State Soccer

    TLCs 19 Kids and Counting had sponsors bailing with record speed. Will the North Texas State Soccer sponsors jump ship as well in light of the serious problems in the organization???

    Re: Heather Dobrott vs. David Arciniega / Garland Soccer Association / US Youth Soccer / North Texas State Soccer

    Capri Sun flipped out on their Facebook page when I questioned sponsoring North Texas Soccer at this time and they claimed they weren't affiliated. I politely pointed out the US Youth Soccer has 55 state organizations and that NTSSA was under their umbrella. The sponsors will not be happy to see the corruption in soccer from top to bottom and the inaction on the part of US Youth Soccer and North Texas.

    Re: Heather Dobrott vs. David Arciniega / Garland Soccer Association / US Youth Soccer / North Texas State Soccer

    Did US Youth Soccer botch the investigation or not investigate at all and protect David Arciniega from facing the music. No one I know in Garland Soccer has been questioned in this likely non-existent investigation. I went to all levels in soccer including the US Soccer Federation for help. US Youth Soccer, North Texas Soccer and Garland Soccer are failing in their charitable missions and simply ignore their own by-laws! I was removed for filing this suit (even though I had no other way left to get help) and I demand David Arciniega be removed as well as the by-laws dictate.


    The following issues in Garland Soccer need to be investigated:

    1. Garland’s children were harmed by sexual predator Bernardo Mondragon-Guzman. Has Garland Soccer made changes as they promised they would do in the media?
    2. A director married to a registered for life, level 2 sex offender with a child victim was letting him handle rosters and other records. This director did not drive and this offender accompanied her everywhere. The president insisted on keeping her on the board knowing the sex offender would be around at every soccer activity possibly putting our children in danger.
    3. This same director and her husband were bragging that they would be meeting the association president, David Arciniega, to discuss construction work for GSA when no open bidding was in progress.
    4. $8,000.00 of “missing funds” has no proper documentation as the board is routinely denied documentation.
    5. Garland Soccer Association president, David Arciniega, lied to the GSA member coaches about those “missing funds” claiming there was ongoing litigation between the software provider, Jevin and the payment processor, Corduro. 2 years later no litigation is on record anywhere.
    6. A former Coach and director were brought up on phony charges when the player pool placed children of the correct age with their coaching parents. Why would children be placed on teams competing against their parents’ teams?
    7. The president, David Arciniega, runs this organization like a dictatorship and flouts the GSA, North Texas State and US Youth Soccer by-laws.
    8. State law concerning fiduciary duties is not being followed.
    9. Elections in Garland Soccer have been rigged for years.
    10. Arciniega filed a No Confidence Petition in an attempt to remove a director who spoke on behalf of a candidate running against him. Members are afraid to vote their conscience.
    11. The number of players and coaches are dropping as folks leave unhappy with their experience in Garland Soccer.
    12. Garland Soccer has lost almost all of its interleague play with neighboring associations. Richardson, Wylie and Chamber Classic have left Garland Soccer. Plano Soccer will not invite us to join them all. The U13 and up depend on interleague to have enough teams to play in their correct age groups.
    13. The coaches are shut down at meetings and their voices are not heard.
    14. The Garland Soccer Association is operated in a shroud of secrecy even though it is in fact a 501 c 3 charity and should be completely transparent.
    15. Members of the association and the public have not been welcomed to the board meetings.
    16. Board meeting agendas, board meeting minutes and board member reports are kept secret.

    This organization has coaches in fear of retaliation if they speak out. It is a hostile and unwelcoming environment.

    Dear Ms. Dobrott:

    I apologize for the delay in responding to your initial email.

    As the traditional application of the Bylaw you cited has previously been used almost exclusively in response to filed criminal actions, we are currently evaluating the civil suit against Garland Soccer Association and David Arciniega for Bylaw applicability and jurisdiction.

    As we do not have a corporate General Counsel, I ask your indulgence for the time involved in our review process.
    I expect the review to conclude in the very near future.

    Sincerely,

    John

    John Sutter
    Chairman

    Re: Will US Youth Soccer Sponsors Bail???

    More sponsors who are discovering to their horror the debacles in North Texas State Soccer are directly linked to US Youth Soccer and their mismanagement, failure to follow their own by-laws and inaction in regards to the ongoing problem of children being victimized in their organization:

    · Olive Garden Hi Heather:

    Olive Garden’s sponsorship is with US Youth Soccer. We don’t sponsor the organization this individual is associated with, nor is it affiliated with US Youth Soccer.

    • Heather Dawne Dobrott US Youth Soccer has North Texas State Soccer under it. The local association Garland Soccer is under North Texas State. This is all a part of US Youth Soccer. US Youth, if you read the posts carefully is not following its own by-laws and serious issues are not being addressed. This is a tragedy for our youth! Remember FIFA??? Soccer is corrupt and not accountable from top to bottom! Please step up to the plate and insists US Youth Soccer clean up its act.

    Scandal / Corruption Garland Soccer Association / US Youth Soccer / North Texas State Soccer / David Arciniega


    US Youth Soccer's John Sutter is dropping the ball. Soccer is corrupt
    from top to bottom! David Arciniega, a director with North Texas State
    Soccer is totally corrupt! When will this open flouting of state laws concerning fiduciary duties, mishandling of money, records being handled by sex offenders, veil of secrecy and
    harassment of whistleblowers end? US Youth needs to complete its investigation according to its own by-laws and issue a written report!

    The blatant flouting of by-laws and state law continue. US Youth is a disaster and the numbers will continue to drop as US Club and other well run programs come in.

    Just the musings of an old methane-marketer, Mom, but if you manage to de-corrupt soccer, it'll be the only US sport that hasn't been corrupted in one form or another! Best of luck!
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!

    Re: Will US Youth Soccer Sponsors Bail???

    Please read the following court filing. David Arciniega’s and Garland Soccer’s Motion to Abate was denied. The emails from US Youth Chair, Jesse Harrell, make it painfully obvious why. Participants can’t get help at any level of soccer. The by-laws are routinely flouted. This corruption must end!
