    Garland Soccer president, David Arciniega, has run GSA into the ground and is mismanaging it so badly. Almost all of the other associations in North Texas State Soccer will run their player pools once. They will be getting final rosters to the coaches weeks before the season starts and will be able to start on time well organized and ready to go. Garland will be an unorganized disaster that starts late, dumps players on coaches through the first 4 games and once again runs off players and coaches that have a miserable experience.

    How in the hell did this clown, David Arciniega, ever get on the state board when his own association is in crisis and imploding?

    Plano and Mesquite are hosting boatloads of teams and are growing by leaps and bounds. Notice GSA's U19 group. Those 3 teams had to play each opponent 5 times each. Chamber Classic (CCSAI) has most of their teams in Lake Highlands or Plano. The 3 teams that ended up playing in Garland, including the 1 U19 girls' team, most likely missed the cut-offs to get on the schedules in the well run associations. What coach would stay in Garland and play the same teams 5 times each?

    Rowlett Youth Soccer (RYSA) has all of their boys' teams elsewhere. I doubt their girls' teams will stay in Garland as it implodes. David Arciniega, the president of Garland Soccer, is the problem here. Richardson,Mesquite, Wylie, Plano, Lake Highlands and the other neighboring associations will no longer play with Garland due to the mismanagement and internal problems.

    Their chairman of Coaching Education, David Arciniega the GSA president, will never admit the association is collapsing and see that the Garland major league teams are made aware that they should register elsewhere to play as Garland doesn't have enough teams to keep a real division open for them. When will North Texas State step in and see that the Garland teams are served?

    Sachse is recommending its residents, who are in Garland Soccer's territory, join the much better run Wylie Soccer Association. Why not go where the free tournaments are and the major league plays with the best association in North Texas (Plano Youth Soccer!)

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

    The scores for U13-U19 (major league) were never reported for a number of games. None of the older age groups got their trophies at the end of the fall season. Garland Soccer's major league director has not determined final standings and the trophies for major league have not even been ordered yet.

    David Arciniega's total mismanagement, the reduction in the number of board member age group directors and running off dedicated people like me is coming home to roost. The mass exodus will continue.


    Welcome to the Garland Soccer Association, Inc. in Garland, Texas!
    Garland Soccer Association is a non-profit corporation. We have
    a current membership of over 4,000 youth players, making
    Garland Soccer Association the fifth largest youth association in
    the North Texas State Soccer Association.

    Our Teams consist of
    boys and girls ages Under-5 through Under-19.
    We are proudly affiliated with the North Texas State Soccer Association,
    the United States Soccer Federation and Federation Internationale de Football Association.

    We hope you find the Garland Soccer Association web site to be
    an informative source for coaches,
    ref
    erees, players, parents and teams. Your comments and suggestions about our website
    are welcome.
    Garland Soccer's number of players has dropped by 50% since David Arciniega took the helm. From well over 4000 to barely above 2000. The taxpayers of Garland are taking their dollars elsewhere and it will dearly costs local businesses.

    Nonprofit works to play by the rules

    Soccer organization leaders say they now have financial controls


    By Bj Lewis
    Staff Writer
    blewis@dentonrc.com
    Published: 21 November 2015 11:27 PM

    Officials from Denton’s local nonprofit youth soccer organization are working to remain in compliance with tax laws and procedures concerning its status as a tax-exempt nonprofit.
    Denton Soccer Association has had some problems in recent years due to a lack of proper financial controls and proper tax form filings, according to Kevin Stout, the association’s treasurer. Those problems resulted the loss of its nonprofit status, but current members of the board insist things have been fixed and the organization is running smoothly again.

    “I was elected in May. I was new to the board at that time, [and] when I walked in I had no idea what issues there were,” Stout said. “I know that there was concern that there were unaccounted funds.”

    One issue was clear at that time: The Internal Revenue Service had revoked DSA’s status as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt company.

    Federal tax exemption for a nonprofit organization is automatically revoked for failure to file a Form 990 for three consecutive years, according to the IRS. Form 990 is a nonprofit’s annual tax return. In exchange for tax-exempt status, nonprofits must make their annual 990 open to the public for inspection.

    According to IRS documents, DSA’s status was revoked Jan. 14, 2014.
    Denton soccer officials received a letter dated Sept. 3 of this year that stated DSA’s nonprofit status was reinstated. According to IRS officials, there is a Form 990 on file dated August 2014.

    DSA officials have not provided the Denton Record-Chronicle with a requested copy of their most recent filed Form 990.

    According to the compliance guide for 501(c)(3) public charities, “a public charity must make available for public inspection its annual information return, Form 990 series, with schedules, attachments, and supporting documents filed with the IRS.”


    According to the DSA constitution, the primary purpose of the organization is to foster and advance the sport of soccer for young persons under 19 years of age to promote sportsmanship, honesty, loyalty and courage through organized athletic competition, and to educate participants in the North Texas State Soccer Association and the United States Youth Soccer Association.

    Earlier this year, DSA board members had concerns over possible mismanagement of funds. After discussing them as a board, members took the issues to the North Texas State Soccer Association to review. According to its mission statement, the state association exists to promote, foster and advance the cause of soccer for youth and adults within its territory. The state association is to educate, provide administrative service, promote and stimulate interest in the game.

    The review did not find anything unusual or missing, according to David Messersmith, executive director of the Frisco-based NTSSA.

    “They did find that [the DSA] did not have some controls in place to account for the cash transactions,” he said. “[We] suggested to that board that they might want to consider getting a treasurer who was an accountant by trade or CPA to look at their statements on a regular basis.”

    But, according to Messersmith, all the state agency can do is offer advice.
    “We’re a parent organization only in the aspect that local associations register their players with us,” he said. “Each one is a separate 501(c)(3) organization responsible for its own activity. We don’t have any oversight over how they run their business — they can take our advice or not.”


    Ashley Holt, current vice president of the DSA board, acknowledged there had been mismanagement.

    “We definitely want the record set straight,” she said. “No one bought any Gucci bags or anything like that, and we have tried to fix the mismanagement so there is no more missing money.”

    But Melissa Vardis, a former DSA board vice president, says otherwise.
    Vardis was removed from her elected position and booted from the organization in October. She filed a report with the Denton Police Department on Nov. 14, alleging that in excess of $100,000 in DSA funds remain unaccounted for.

    Officer Ryan Grelle, a Denton police spokesman, said there was not suitable evidence to investigate wrongdoing.

    Vardis said she wants to hold the DSA’s board and staff accountable for the problems, which go back several years. She said the organization did not file the required Form 990s with the IRS for the years 2011-14.

    Stout was surprised by Vardis’ decision to file a police report because she was no longer on the DSA board.

    “The very people making the complaint sat there for a year and didn’t do anything,” Stout said. “If you saw these things, why didn’t you fix them?”

    Vardis has claimed that she has financial records indicating money management issues, but Stout said he doubts Vardis possesses accurate financial data about DSA.

    “The data is the same data they had. It’s no different than what he submitted to the CPA to get our 2014 taxes done,” Vardis replied. “The validity is it came straight from the books he and [other staff] looked at.”

    Nonetheless, Vardis said she has filed a 25-page formal complaint about the DSA operations to the North Texas State Soccer Association.

    “Denton needs a soccer association that can be run with transparency — that’s what it boils down to,” she said.

    Stout said there is no vast conspiracy to how the DSA is run, in times of financial troubles or now.

    “You had a group of people in 2012 to 2014 trying to do the best they could,” Stout said. “And there was room for improvement, and those improvements have been made.”

    North Texas is totally mismanaged and several dishonest people have caused serious issues in that once well-respected organization. Messersmith knows that North Texas can take jurisdiction and do whatever is necessary if there are money and by-law issues. He is blatantly lying to the media. The failure of North Texas to appropriately handle situations is why so many local associations are in crisis and players and coaches are leaving soccer in droves. Education, oversight, proper controls, and swift action are non-existent. Garland, NTSSA and US Youth don't even make a token effort to follow their own by-laws, state law or IRS regulations. Youth Soccer is in crisis!


    North Texas State Soccer Association (501 c 3 over Garland Soccer Association) says:
    2.2.6 Jurisdiction
    This Association shall have jurisdiction over all Member Associations’ administrators, referees, coaches, assistant coaches, managers registered players and teams affiliated with it. Each Member Association shall retain its own autonomy, but will adhere to its Bylaws and Rules and Regulations and will comply with the authority of the (North Texas State Soccer) Association. If the Association is presented sufficient evidence that a Member Association is not adhering to its Bylaws and Rules and Regulations, the Association may form a committee to investigate the allegations and make recommendations to the Executive Committee to correct the infraction(s). If gross misuse of funds, misapplication of Bylaws, or misapplication of rules and regulations is discovered, the Member Association shall be declared not in good standing and given sixty (60) days to correct the situation, or the (North Texas State Soccer) Association may take more immediate action if deemed necessary by the Executive Committee.

    Scandal / Corruption Garland Soccer Association / US Youth Soccer / North Texas State Soccer / David Arciniega
    Reports from the meeting indicate that Paula Tiffin, the office manager, admitted that there were 18 illegal players in the league. That of course is entirely David Arciniega's fault. The rest of the associations under the North Texas State Soccer umbrella use GotSoccer. GotSoccer would catch duplicate registrations of players already on a select team that then later try to register on a recreational team. Since David Arciniega insists on Garland being the only association using Jevin these poor parents that unknowingly sign up their kids on select and recreational teams simultaneously get the kids, coach and whole team punished weeks later when Garland Soccer uploads all the player records in GotSoccer(North Texas uses GotSoccer, so Garland is forced to use it after registration as well.) The rules require that teams using illegal players forfeit every game in which that player is used. That means the whole team loses almost all of their games as the player isn't identified until the season is almost over. This is unexcusable. Several directors and I tried to get Garland Soccer to use GotSoccer like the rest of North Texas to resolve this problem, but David Arciniega who clearly has an inappropriate relationship with Dan Ptak and his Jevin software company won't allow Garland to use the proper registration software. These teams effected by this should file grievances with North Texas and demand that Arciniega be removed for his gross incompetence in failing to address this issue after years of complaints and total dishonesty about where the money paid to Jevin is going.

    C.Penalties:
    Any team or player not properly registered will forfeit all games in which the team or player participated. The participation by an unauthorized player(s) shall result in the forfeiture of the game(s). The coach and player(s) shall be required to appear before the A & D Committee. A violation of this rule shall result in the offending Coach, Assistant Coach or Manager/Administrator being suspended for a minimum of one year from all soccer related activities.
    Did the Vice President, Piney suspend every single coach? I have heard coaches complain that she has insisted that every coach be banned for a year with no exceptions. Even though they had the player assigned to them by GSA's crappy software, Jevin(that David Arciniega insists they keep using), they are punished.

    Was any coach shown any favoritism? The angry coaches and families will continue to leave. And, some who were not able to get out this spring are planning to leave over the summer when they will have more time to get their team organized to play elsewhere. The rumors are really heating up!

    IMPORTANT MESSAGE!!! We have had the office open for Spring 2016 registration the last 3 weeks, and have had only two folks come in to register. So, to save a little money, and still be available to help our players, coaches, and parents, the DSA office will be closed starting today, December 15 thru January 3rd, but should you need us for any reason, contact us at dsaofficestaff@gmail.com and we will make arrangements to meet you at the office. Wishing you Joyous Holidays!


    North Texas State Soccer's failure to provide education, leadership and proper oversight is going to really show is the plummeting numbers in some local associations that are clearly in crisis. I have heard that Denton Soccer like Garland was very large and had around 4000 players. Now, they are rumored to have around 900. No doubt Garland will be close behind in the record setting losses.

    North Texas State Soccer Association (501 c 3 over Garland Soccer Association) says:

    Denton Soccer is a failure to the community it was set up to serve. Backhanded, dishonest, individuals who have their own agendas believe they own the non-profit org.

    Perfect example of A PROBLEM in an organization

    1. Player Enrollment drops from 4000 4 years ago to 900?
    2. Sponsorship activity is difficult to obtain, businesses do not want their money lost in a black hole!

    NTSSA has numerous complaints (Formal!) lodged against individuals yet NOTHING is done!

    What does it take to get people to stand up and force these entities to comply and do their job?

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

    What is absurd about Treasurer Stout's remarks....

    June 2015 EMAIL Letter (3 pages) outlining the Theft and the certainty that it goes beyond 2012!

    Multitude of emails between the DSA Executive Board and NTSSA from Each DSA Board member ADMITTING to the knowledge of the Theft in excess of $30,000 ($30K!)

    Inside those emails is the outline POA that was ignored and ultimately WIPED away by Stout in a Motion to ZERO out all accounts prior to March 2015 and close the books.....

    BUT OCTOBER 2015 Stout wants to make a motion to "reimburse a $93,000 donation that somehow miraculously turned into a Loan"...


    I bet the other businesses who sponsored/donated would like their LOANS to be repaid now also ! Since they were lied to about sponsoring/donating to a "FRAUDULENT 501c3 Business"



    YET! Taxes STILL have to be filed for 2012 - 2015..... 990 status was revoked for 2012-September 2015 (SO, what does the companies who sponsored/donated to a "FRAUDULENT 501c3 business" during that time do?

    Plus hundreds of other serious legal questions to be asked!

    hmmmm

    Welcome to the site! It is high time the corruption and incompetence in North Texas State Soccer be exposed. NTSSA simply sweeps everything under the rug. Corrupt local associations implode and many players and coaches leave the great sport of soccer.

    Nonprofit whistle-blower employee nets $1.6 million retaliation award

    A former senior case manager at a New Jersey ex-convict rehabilitation facility has been awarded more than $1.6 million in damages plus back pay after she was fired for reporting a manager’s unethical and retaliatory conduct.
    17 Apr 2013Tricia Gorman
    A jury in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas unanimously found that Marla Pietrowski’s former employer, The Kintock Group, violated the New Jersey Conscientious Employee Protection Act, N.J. Stat. Ann. 34:19-1, by creating a hostile work environment and terminating her for reporting conduct that violated company policy.
    (Westlaw users: Click here for more articles from Westlaw Journal Employment).
    The state CEPA protects employees from being fired in retaliation for disclosing or objecting to a wrongful business practice or conduct by a fellow employee.
    The jury awarded Pietrowski $1.5 million in punitive damages, $100,000 for pain and suffering and just shy of $78,000 in back pay.

    (Click here for the damages verdict sheet).
    “I feel so thankful to the jury for their ability to see that I was a victim of abuse of power and that employees who stand up to their employers and voice concerns about wrongdoing in the workplace should not fear being fired,” Pietrowski said, according to a statement from Console Law Offices, which represented her.....
    We whistleblowers will not be silenced!

    Major League Director:
    The implosion continues. Though Donna Freeman left, her name is still listed on the site. David Arciniega wants to keep the number of directors to a minimum and not get any new people in so that he can keep control of his board filled with his stooges. Donna was run out in December 2014 with me when David Arciniega and his brainless stooges voted to reduce the number of directors in order to get rid of me and keep the mindless followers of Arciniega in control of the board. Donna Freeman had been instrumental in the last ditch, desperate efforts to rebuild the major league, but when she was pushed out it continued to collapse. Her dad worked in Lake Highlands and they left with her. Now, Wylie, Richardson, Lake Highlands, Mesquite and Chamber Classic are gone. If the Rowlett girls teams bail then Garland will be totally isolated and unable to play its older teams as David Arciniega has run this association into the ground.

    Donna Freeman returned in May 2015 as the Publicity and Awards Director as she was voted in to replace Mrs. Sex Offender who hadn't shown up or worked for months. She then ran for Major League Director this past December (2015), but David Arciniega's chief stooge, Don Starkey, nominated Jesse Flores from the floor and he was voted in. I have heard complaints about Flores dropping the ball and no doubt under his leadership the remnants of the major league will leave and the major league will be virtually non-existent by fall. Donna had the experience, but as she is painfully aware of how corrupt and mismanaged Garland is I am sure Arciniega was anxious to be rid of her.

    Donna Freeman is probably one of the many coaches planning to exit in the summer and leave Garland for good as it continues to implode. The question is when will the Garland Parks and Recreation Department take action? Garland players and their families are taking their soccer dollars elsewhere and that will really hurt local businesses as these families spend food and gas money in Richardson, Plano, Mesquite and Wylie etc. This will have a huge financial impact thanks to David Arciniega's antics driving folks away.

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

    Speaking of brainless stooges, coaches voted Piney Burch-Walser in from the floor for Vice President in 2014. She promised that she would follow the rules and bring David Arciniega up on the ethics violations and by-law violations that coaches had brought to her. She promised that she would stand up to Arciniega and see that necessary changes were made. She stabbed all those that voted for her in the back as she has done nothing and the corruption and mismanagement in Garland is worse than ever.

    Rumor has it that David Arciniega's old Vice President and chief stooge Kim Verity will run again this spring and the stooges will vote her in to get rid of Burch-Walser. Verity brought me up on the phony No Confidence vote because I voted against her buddy David Arciniega supporting another presidential candidate. Verity also filed charges against me because a child was placed on their own father's team (by the player pool and not me) that the dad coached. They don't get much dirtier or dishonest, but as Garland is imploding and the good, honest coaches are running for the hills, who knows what kind of scum will be voted into office in the next election.

    Garland Soccer bragged in 2002:
    Welcome to the Garland Soccer Association, Inc. in Garland, Texas!
    Garland Soccer Association is a non-profit corporation. We have a current membership of over 4,300 youth players, making Garland Soccer Association the second largest association in the North Texas State Soccer Association. Our Teams consist of boys and girls ages Under-6 through Under-19.
    Today Garland Soccer has only 180 teams playing. There were only 193 total in the fall including the U15- U19 that do not start play for two more weeks. The only age group to add teams was the few (less than normal) in U6 as the new U4Y age group came in. There were 13 teams in the major league in the fall that could return and potentially make the final total number 193 teams. But, I know coaches and players have left and all the other groups above U6 dropped in numbers yet again, so the total numbers have fallen again this spring. The total number of players is going to barely exceed 2000. There is one explanation for this disastrous drop. David Arciniega!

    Youth Soccer numbers dipped a little during the economic downturn, but have been rebounding nicely and are now virtually identical to the numbers when Arciniega took over. Texas has rebounded economically and in Garland houses are sold almost the minute they hit the market as several large corporations have come in the area and are bringing gobs of jobs. Garland is in an economic boom!

    Garland Soccer has been plagued with rapes of children that garnered no reasonable response to that, money is not being properly accounted for, meetings and records that are supposed to be public are kept secret, a known sex offender handling records and being kept around our kids, illegal A & D hearings, a hostile environment for directors and coaches, complete disregard for the rules, by-laws, IRS regulations and state law, rigged elections and more. All of the issues in Garland Soccer trace back directly to David Arciniega and his blatant mismanagement and dishonesty.

    The City of Garland is taking another look and a meeting for the citizens / taxpayers to share their concerns is being discussed. The harassment and intimidation that is blatant in this totally corrupt program has kept many from coming forward. I spoke at length with my city councilman and the city has only been in contact with Don Starkey as he is on the Parks and Rec board and GSA president David Arciniega. Obviously, as the city sponsors GSA with fields and listing it as the official soccer group, they should be talking to other groups that may wish to run a program in Garland. The taxpayers are not being served. This program is not well run and the kids and the money are clearly not safe.

    GSA SPRING SEASON

    The collapse of this totally corrupt and mismanaged charity continues. Major League and U10 Director, Jesse Flores, is totally incompetent and coaches are complaining he is not communicating with them. They are flabbergasted that he has been using the computer in the GSA field house as he apparently doesn't have one at home. He can't possibly do his job when he is unable to communicate. More older age group coaches are planning their exits for this summer.

    There were only 13 teams in this age group in the fall. No doubt the numbers have dropped yet again and interleague participation has dropped as well. Many former partner associations are now playing in the fabulous Plano leagues and Mesquite refuses to play with GSA on the other side of town. The City of Garland needs to take action to save what is left of soccer in our city.

    Play is supposed to start in 5 days. Where in the heck are the schedules? Plano had these age groups scheduled over a month ago and they are hosting at multiple times more teams. Garland Soccer had only 4 U19 boys teams in the fall and that number may have dropped. No interleague teams played with GSA. Plano has 21 U19 boys teams playing this season and draws teams from all over the Metroplex. Garland was the second largest association in the North Texas State region. Now, ten years later it is half the size it was and will continue to collapse due to David Arciniega's dishonesty, manipulations and gross mismanagement.

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

    The attorney for David Arciniega and Garland Soccer told the judge on April Fool's Day that I hadn't gone to North Texas and had not exhausted all my internal remedies. Obviously, that very well respected and talented litigator has a liar for a client. David Arciniega has handed him heaping piles of dung.

    David Arciniega did not attend the hearing for the Plea to Jurisdiction that was denied and neither did any of the board members. David Arciniega has kept the board in the dark about everything and refused to provide documentation as state law and IRS regulations dictate. I bet the board had no idea there was a hearing yesterday. Garland Soccer and North Texas State Soccer are totally mismanaged and corrupt!

    As the suit is going forward, depositions of board members and long time coaches will be forthcoming!

    Level two sex offended: indicates that the person poses a moderate danger to the community and may continue to engage in criminal sexual conduct.

    And GSA knew about this?

    Disband and replace everyone associated with GSA.
    Create a new GSA immediately.

    The kids still need to play.
    But not under this group who failed the community and kids.

    GSA SPRING SEASON
    IMPORTANT DATES

    March 28, 2016
    Spring Season starts for U15 - U19.
    The season for these older kids didn't start until April 2nd. David Arciniega and his stooge Jesse Flores have now completely destroyed the major league age group. The U15 boys division had 3 teams in the fall, Chivas, Texas Heat and Kix Soccer. Of those only 1, Kix Soccer, came back this spring. The coaches are not hearing much at all from Flores. Why would Garland Soccer have board members with virtually no computer access?

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

    Time to kiss North Texas goodbye. Other groups are stepping up and offering to take over Garland and the surrounding territory. As North Texas is not following its by-laws and doing its job for the local associations that is has jurisdiction over it is definitely time for change. Please contact the city of Garland and let them know your thoughts! The city must pick only one program to run the soccer leagues as the number of players left in Garland is so incredibly low it can't support more than a single program.

    Garland has gone from the second largest association in NTSSA to a collapsing mismanaged disaster with less than half the number of kids playing since David Arciniega's dictatorship came into power. With the numbers continuing to plummet, what is left of Garland Soccer should be saved so the kids can play close to home.

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

    No doubt the Garland Soccer board is still in the dark and hasn't seen this:

    Order Denying Garland Soccer David Arciniega's Plea to Jurisdiction.pdf

    North Texas should step in and take jurisdiction. The fact I had to file suit makes it abundantly clear that David Arciniega (NTSSA's Chairman of Coaching Education) is totally corrupt and mismanaging Garland Soccer. It is no wonder that Club Soccer is eating up North Texas Clubs and has a group wanting to take over the recreational soccer in this area. NTSSA has had so many legitimate complaints, grievances and appeals and has completely ignored their own by-laws and not handled the issues in their territory.

    No one from GSA showed up for the April Fool's Day hearing where GSA and David Arciniega lost their pathetic bid to get the case thrown out due to jurisdictional issues. I bet the board is also being kept in the dark about the trial date set by the judge:

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

    I received a report from a licensed attorney calling from his law office that is on the board af another youth sports group using Jevin. They are owed $39,000.00 by Jevin and a group near them is out $20,000.00 as well. David Arciniega forced the GSA board to retain Jevin after numerous late payments and "missing money" from 2013. David Arciniega is responsible for risking tens of thousands of dollars belonging to the children and families of Garland with Jevin. This is one of the many reasons I filed suit against him. He has destroyed Garland Soccer. Board members, coaches and players are leaving Garland Soccer in droves. GSA is collapsing.

    The City of Garland and US Youth Soccer must immediately take action. As Arciniega is on the NTSSA board, then US Youth Soccer must take jurisdiction of GSA and a forensic auditor and independent counsel must be appointed to thoroughly investigate David Arciniega and Garland Soccer.

    I'm following this thread and reading the newspaper. Good for the OP for following up on an important topic.

    The truth is rec soccer is in serious trouble in NTX and their are some real bad apples taking over the leadership roles in these organizations.

    It's a shame really because there are a lot of D1 soccer players that have come up through the rec associations with dad coaches and the support if the local community.

    Keep up the fight OP. We are with you!!
