    Interesting that hothead Starkey no longer lists his service on the Garland Parks and Rec Board nor his involvement in Garland Soccer as a board member, referee and coach on Twitter. Garland Soccer and its errant leader, David Arciniega, are an incredible embarrassment. Starkey has put in so much hard work and could be a valuable board member, but he thinks his loyalty should be to David Arciniega. Actually, he is to serve the non-profit corporation and its members. Serving as Arciniega's attack dog is going to be his downfall. Not to mention, he totally shirked all his other fiduciary duties as he refuses to seek any documentation on anything and blocks anyone who asks the tough questions. Thanks to fools like Starkey there are no checks and balances to keep the lying goon, Arciniega, from destroying the charity he is supposed to be serving loyally and the Garland Soccer board is an extremely hostile environment where retaliation and intimidation are rampant.

    Garland Soccer is a complete disaster. A coach messaged me today wanting to know where the team's spring trophies were. Jesse Flores is running both the U10 and major leagues straight into the ground. He was one of the idiots that voted to shrink the number of directors so that David Arciniega could push me out and avoid doing his duties according to state law and the bylaws. I have gotten numerous complaints about Flores not communicating when David Arciniega said less directors (meaning he would retain his flunkies only) was going to improve communication. Garland Soccer is imploding and NTSSA and US Youth need to take jurisdiction and save what little is left.

    Garland will end returning player registration on August 6, but new player registration will never end. Another totally chaotic and unorganized season will scare off scores more players and coaches. And, no doubt the usual disaster of short rosters will go on as David Arciniega tries to keep team counts up even though there is no chance that enough players will register to fill the spots left open. The U15(from spring) now U17 boys had gobs of teams in years past, but now, the 1 remaining team in that age group will be lucky to come back this fall due to a history of low roster counts. The roster counts have been so low in the older age groups that teams cannot field enough players to play and rarely have substitutes in many cases. Team after team has collapsed due to Arciniega's total mismanagement and complete lack of communication and help for the coaches.

    Unbelievable that the coaches got stuck with this abusive, manipulative and dishonest lady back on the board. As she was a not a head coach, she had to have her husband sign the No Confidence vote against me as that is something only a head coach can do under the current by-laws. She was harassing me for voting for the candidate I thought most qualified for president. She is a blind follower of the current president David Arciniega. The No Confidence vote also attacked me for going to the police about missing money and demanding appropriate documentation about that (as the law concerning fiduciary duties requires of board members.) She obviously has no qualms about risking hundreds of thousands of dollars belonging to the families of Garland. I was also maligned for going up the ladder to North Texas State Soccer for help when that is the proper procedure. Quintana is one very scary lady and is making sure captain Arciniega sinks Garland Soccer like the Titanic!

    It baffles me in 2016, how a major regional sports association doesn't have enough of a social media presence to issue messages about the status of games for a major tournament when severe weather is being forecast. Hell, their social media hasn't even mentioned the tournament or been active since April 15. Get it together North Texas Soccer.
    That was a major theme at the AGM. North Texas is imploding with corruption and mismanagement rampant. They can't even follow their own by-laws, much less organize anything!

    This Friday marks our Director of Operations Rob Martella's final day at US Youth Soccer. His dedication to and passion for the game will surely be missed. Thank you for your hard work over the last 15 years!

    To: rmartella@usyouthsoccer.org
    Subject: Garland Soccer Asociation

    Dear Mr. Martella,

    Thank you so much for making the time to speak with me. Garland Soccer is in crisis and US Youth Soccer very much needs to investigate and take appropriate action.

    My son has a serious chronic medical condition and is tube fed elemental formula. He had to quit playing soccer after 6 wonderful years in November 2012. I had taken the F Clinic and coached a U12 team with him to keep it from being folded. As he was very sick, I needed to find a new coach for the team that spring. When the new head coach came in his son was placed on the team by the player pool. David Arciniega filed phony A & D charges against me and the U12 director and took us before a “board hearing” because he claimed we had “instructed” in the placement of a player and coach. There is no such thing as a board hearing as that is the level of appeal for an A & D charge. We have nothing to do with the player pool and would not be able to contact them. Why in the world would GSA not put children of the correct age with their coaching parents??? Why were we given no decision letter after NTSSA made it clear it is required? Why was our grievance not heard as we could not appeal without a letter?

    There was serious conflict over having open board meetings. Proper documentation was routinely denied to the board by president Arciniega. David Arciniega would not respond to legitimate complaints from associations playing interleague with us and now Richardson, Wylie and Chamber Classic are gone and Plano will not invite us to join them. Our registration is unlike any other association’s and our seasons almost always start late and are very chaotic and unorganized. Our major league will not be able to play soon due to the low number of remaining teams. Our overall numbers keep dropping as well as coaches and parents are unhappy and leave.

    When over 8 thousand dollars went missing Arciniega refused to provide the board any documentation whatsoever. He proceeded to lie to the coaches and spun a ridiculous tale about the software provider Jevin couldn’t pay us because of the payment processor Corduro. Arciniega brayed to the member coaches about Jevin having sued Corduro and that the litigation was ongoing and that the NTSSA lawyers said it must be kept secret. Since when is deliberately lying to the coaches acceptable? Several directors tried for the last 2 years to get answers on this.

    I was brought up on a No Confidence Petition in August 2013 because in the May 2013 election I had spoken for the candidate running against Arciniega, demanded documentation on a serious money issue and had asked questions and filed a grievances with NTSSA in response to the A & D charges and other pressing issues. That was nothing more than pure harassment for doing my job as state law requires.

    Elections have been rigged for years. That should be investigated, but filing a formal complaint with the VP was once again useless. She is afraid of David Arciniega and is prevented from doing her job. No action was taken and the VP knows that she can’t go to NTSSA for help. Arciniega can do whatever he wishes and knows he will never be held accountable.

    I reported that a dangerous sex offender was married to a director who could not drive and that she was letting him handle rosters and other records and David Arciniega and NTSSA proceeded to out me to this dangerous offender in violation of the Whistleblowers Policy. The board is a hostile environment and Arciniega has always run it like a dictatorship.

    The director with the sex offender husband had many more serious issues of which Arciniega was aware. Her home mysteriously burned down in 2013. She was bragging then of David Arciniega meeting her and her husband about doing construction work for GSA. My family decided to test out their business. They were paid in full for a stone job at our home. They had not costed that small job out correctly and we had to write another check so that they could purchase the materials to finish the job. I searched permits and the BBB and other sites and talked to many former customers who had paid them thousands of dollars only to have the money lost as the Martins left the jobs in shambles and unfinished. One customer told me of Mr. Martin’s sex offender status and was sure he had committed arson. I joined him in making a report to law enforcement. Their house mysteriously burned again 14 months later. Since the whistleblower’s policy had been once again ignored and I was outed to this dangerous offender and his wife apparently they fingered me for the fire. I was asked to take a polygraph. I asked NTSSA for a lawyer. I had already filed a formal written statement and agreed to help in any way possible, but a polygraph is reason to get good legal advice. NTSSA refused my request and I was intimidated again. So, are NTSSA and Arciniega going to actively discourage folks from cooperating with law enforcement now?

    I sent in a formal request for the Vice President to check the attendance records of a director that it turned out had missed 62% of the meetings and see if she had to be removed as the by-laws state. I had sent my concern only to the VP. She forwarded it to Arciniega. He made sure the director in question got it and she publicly attacked me outside the field house during our fall tournament while David Arciniega looked on apparently amused. Once again he lied and told everyone present that I had sent it to the whole board. I told him that was nonsense and that these antics must stop. There is no ethics committee in GSA though the by-laws state one must be formed. The VP is terrified of Arciniega and once again would not file charges against him.

    The infighting on the Garland Soccer board is destroying that association. Several of my then fellow directors were well aware of the lawsuit. They know the allegations are factual. They know the US Youth by-laws state Arciniega shall be removed. That should finally spur a real investigation into what has been going on in GSA and NTSSA. If the dishonest leadership gets removed perhaps those of us who truly care about these kids and coaches can save what is left and rebuild relationships with the neighboring associations so the major league players will still be able to play. It is inexcusable that these serious problems have been allowed to go unchecked for years.

    There are so many serious challenges facing GSA Please complete the investigation that Mr. Sutter said was underway. There are many people with information that US Youth should be talking to. When is US Youth going to follow up with me for the names of those folks and for clarification and further documentation?

    Please find following the documentation and discussion about those issues facing Garland Soccer:

    Rob Martella dropped the ball. I went to US Youth June 16, 2015. I stopped in to ask why I wasn't getting a formal written response to my serious concerns. While driving in the car I got a call from CW33 and Fox and did two live interviews while I was at the vet's office with my precious bunny in Frisco. Youth Soccer is totally corrupt and mismanaged.

    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.
    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, referees, players, parents and teams. Your comments and suggestions about our website are welcome.


    Garland Soccer went from over 4300 players in 2005 to a current 2000 or so players. This plummeting number obviously is due to president David Arciniega as the national and regional numbers tell a very different story!

    Today was our Marketing and Communications Director Todd Roby's last day at US Youth Soccer. We wish him the best in his next challenge in life! He spent the last 13 years helping make US Youth Soccer the best game for all kids. His hard work will be missed by all.Thank you!

    So, anyone that goes to US Youth and clicks on the links so that they can get assistance are sending their e-mails off into cyberspace to be ignored as all the links in red and blue go to people that left US Youth on June 28th and July 1st. Soccer is plagued by mismanagement and corruption. Is anyone surprised that I have sued David Arciniega and Garland Soccer and am considering adding US Youth to the ongoing suit?

    3. Making a police report in response to missing money.

    4. Discussing public Facebook postings.

    5. Complaining to a service provider listed on domainstools.com and numerous other sites about the Garland Soccer website being down for weeks.

    6. Contacting the North Texas State Soccer Association to file an appeal, grievance or to ask a question.
    Darcy Quintana sent me a Cease and Desist that she signed herself by registered mail. She is crying around that I am intimidating and harassing her and her family. She seems to be confused. She wasn't a head coach, so she couldn't sign a No Confidence Petition, but her spouse Erick Quintana signed it. So, in reality Darcy Quintana was one of the board members that was harassing and intimidating me for voting in the best interest of the charity, demanding money be properly accounted for and going to North Texas Soccer for help. That No Confidence Petition is a public document sent out to all the member coaches that is heard and voted on at a public meeting. So, it is a little late for a meltdown about these issues becoming public.

    The truth and my opinion are not actionable. I am not removing anything unless Quintana can quote a provably false statement of fact and supply verifiable documentation in that regard. Garland Soccer is a public charity / 501 c 3 and all board minutes, board member reports, financial records and more should be publicly available as state law and IRS regulations require. Serving on the board of a public organization like this requires one to be aware of the huge responsibilities involved. It is a public and high profile position.

    Darcy Quintana was harassing me for fulfilling my fiduciary duties to this non-profit / charity and I will not be cow-towing to her silly Cease and Desist. She started a public fight with that No Confidence Petition and I intend to finish it by cleaning up the corrupt mess that Garland Soccer has degenerated into. I did nothing but the right things to serve the coaches and children of Garland. I fought to ensure that state law and IRS regulations were followed and that child safety and financial issues were properly addressed. Thanks to Quintana, David Arciniega, and his other blind followers my reputation has been ruined and it could harm my future employment.

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

    Does Darcy Quintana remember the meeting where all hell broke loose as David Arciniega had everyone "air their feelings?" Members were outside listening to the board:

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

    That is when Darcy took off after the VP, Piney Burch-Walser. I also recall the meetings later in 2013 where Quintana was one of several on the other side of the table smirking and snickering as the U12 Director and I brought up our concerns about the "missing money." Everything was quite funny until as Quintana is finding out that maybe it isn't so funny after all. Serving on a non-profit board is a serious, very time consuming and demanding position. It is high time the clowns take David Arciniega to task and perform their high profile, public jobs according to state law concerning fiduciary duties. A lawsuit is a very serious matter and I filed because there was no other way to address the child safety, financial and other pressing issues that plague Garland Soccer. It is time to end the corruption!

    U4-U8 Recreational Season 9/10 - 11/18
    U9 - U14 (Inter-league with PYSA) begins 9/10
    U15 - U19 TBD


    All these neighboring associations closed registration a long time ago. They are getting final rosters out to their coaches starting tomorrow and the season will be well organized and start on time.

    Garland is just now forming teams and registration will not close until October, so coaches will get players dumped on their rosters through the first half of the season. The directors will spend the next two weeks scrambling to get coaches. As registration never ends, teams will be left short rostered and fall apart. Many coaches won't be assigned to a team in time for the general coaches meeting and age group meetings which will be taking place in two weeks. Many schedule requests will not be in the required two weeks before the season starts on September 10th and schedules will likely be out late as usual.

    Many seasons have started late and it is always chaotic and unorganized. Though David Arciniega thinks he is really clever cleaning up the leftovers from neighboring associations that missed their home associations' registration, many coaches and players leave after having a miserable season. Coaches may end up eating hundreds of dollars of uniforms and have to order them numerous times as the roster constantly changes through the first half of the season (if they are not at the maximum roster number to begin with.)

    Coaches have been eating tournament fees for years as Arciniega refused to address the issue. The office people were telling parents that all players must get 50% playing time, so some didn't pay the coaches their share of the tournament fees. The U12 director and I raised hell about it until Kathleen Robinson finally got clarification from NTSSA that only players that pay have the right to play and get 50% time in tournament games.

    When will Garland be run like a business and be in line with what all the other associations in North Texas State Soccer are doing?

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

    Jevin has yet another customer that called me to inform me that they were out around $50,000.00 of registration funds from the spring season that they have been fighting to get for months.

    Jevin is clearly collapsing, but David Arciniega continues to force Garland Soccer to retain them as their software vendor. As usual, I suspect that the board is not asking questions and Arciniega is as usual not documenting what is going on. David Arciniega is being allowed to run a dictatorship and risk several hundred thousands dollars going through this vendor that is clearly is serious trouble. North Texas State Soccer has been informed numerous times and in clear violations of its own by-laws is not investigating. These groups should not be allowed to retain their 501 c 3 status with money issues not being properly documented and handled.

    The latest group out money has an attorney on the board and that is who I spoke with. I advised that person of the collection laws in Texas and gave them contact information for the other associations that have been dealing with this same disaster. I told them that the Allen, TX police have had formal complaints filed and I recommended that they do the same, but that other associations have found chargebacks to be the fastest way to get paid.

    Will the new President and Chairman of the Board of US Youth Soccer lead the charity into the future or will the corruption and good ol' boy gang shenanigans continue?

    Will Jesse Harrel Lead US Youth Soccer & End Corruption?

    GRIEVANCES, DISPUTES, AND APPEALS
    Bylaw 701. GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

    (4) travel expenses; and
    (5) expenses for holding special National Council meetings necessitated by court
    action.
    US Youth requires associations that do not have procedures in place (like GSA-no A & D Committee, no Ethics Committee, no grievance procedures and more) to hold hearings regardless and follow USYSA's procedures listed. Holding hearings and fair ones as I requested is not an option, but must be done.

    US Youth has been notified numerous times that NTSSA and GSA are completely ignoring the by-laws and not giving members due process. US Youth has jurisdiction and should terminate both organizations as the by-laws specify.

    I am winning in court as the judge can clearly see that due process is not being provided and I have no means to get any help without said court intervention. Again, why are the members of NTSSA and US Youth tolerating this?

    NTSSA has quite a colorful history. Why do they think now that they can sweep serious issues of child safety and financial shenanigans under the rug and not address them at all?

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

    So, the following are grounds for removal from office and require a public No Confidence Petition and vote:

    1. How one votes in a board meeting.

    2. Supporting a candidate other than David Arciniega.

    3. Making a police report in response to missing money.

    4. Discussing public Facebook postings.

    5. Complaining to a service provider listed on domainstools.com and numerous other sites about the Garland Soccer website being down for weeks.

    6. Contacting the North Texas State Soccer Association to file an appeal, grievance or to ask a question.

    www.realscam.com/attachments/f14/9655d1425932905-scandal-corruption-garland-soccer-association-us-youth-soccer-north-texas-state-soccer-david-arciniega-no-confidence-letter.pdf

    Darcy Quintana, a disgruntled member of the Garland Soccer board, sent me a Cease and Desist that she wrote herself by registered mail. She is crying around that I am intimidating and harassing her and her family. She seems to be confused. She wasn't a head coach, so she couldn't sign a No Confidence Petition, but her spouse Erick Quintana signed it. So, in reality Darcy Quintana was one of the board members that was harassing and intimidating me for voting in the best interest of the charity, demanding money be properly accounted for and going to North Texas Soccer for help. That No Confidence Petition is a public document sent out to all the member coaches that is heard and voted on at a public meeting. So, it is a little late for a meltdown about these issues becoming public.

    The truth and my opinion are not actionable. I am not removing anything unless Quintana can quote a provably false statement of fact and supply verifiable documentation in that regard. Garland Soccer is a public charity / 501 c 3 and all board minutes, board member reports, financial records and more should be publicly available as state law and IRS regulations require. Child Safety and financial issues should be properly addressed and documented. Serving on the board of a public organization like this requires one to be aware of the huge responsibilities involved. It is a public and high profile position.

    Darcy Quintana was harassing me for fulfilling my fiduciary duties to this non-profit / charity and I will not be cow-towing to her silly Cease and Desist. She started a public fight with that No Confidence Petition and I intend to finish it by cleaning up the corrupt mess that Garland Soccer has degenerated into.

    Thanks to Quintana, David Arciniega, and his other blind followers my reputation has been ruined and it could harm my future employment. I have worked as a volunteer consumer advocate for over a decade and in that capacity have worked with numerous law enforcement agencies. I could wallpaper a room with all the Cease and Desists and such nonsense that I have received. Quintana should have carefully checked me out before sending that ridiculous Cease & Desist.

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

    Here is a portion of a grievance from 2013. I am still waiting for the A & D decision letter:
    1. Heather has participated in several malicious attempts to remove our President from office – examples include, but are not limited to: encouraged and supported a vote of no confidence, solicited a new member to GSA to run for President, files complaint with NTSSA and continues to provide NTSSA with information in an effort to reveal dysfunction within the organization that are erroneous and not warranted.
    So, board members are not to vote based on what they feel is best for the organization, but are to be bullied into voting the way other board members wish them to? A board member shouldn’t vote for they believe is the most qualified candidate that could best serve our organization? The coach that chose to run for president was highly qualified and as anyone had the right to go to the office of his own accord and have his name placed on the ballot. This gentlemen has coached and worked as a ref for many years and is well-known and highly respected. He has served on other soccer association boards in the area and is now the head coach of a university soccer team. He sought to keep a special needs child on our team when many coaches would have been happy to see this child accidentally removed from their rosters and not spoken up. I felt he was a superb choice and gave him my full support as I felt that he was the best choice for our organization.

    For my fellow board members to tell me I have no right to go to our parent organization that has jurisdiction over us is beyond ridiculous. I have asked for clarification on board meetings and how open they should be, and I sent in an e-mail supporting a coach that wanted to appeal a very close board decision. When I was brought up on charges and never received my determination letter I filed a grievance and made NTSSA aware that it appeared from my careful research that GSA had not followed by-laws and proper protocol and procedures in my case. I have been told by a coach that they were discouraged from filing an appeal with NTSSA by our President.

    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 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 Association may take more immediate action if deemed necessary by the Executive Committee.
    The question is now, are the many members of NTSSA going to allow open flouting of by-laws, rigged elections and flagrant harassment to go on unchecked? I was brought up on the No Confidence Petition by David Arciniega in retaliation for supporting a more qualified candidate for president. This is your State Association and David Arciniega is on that board. The secrecy and lies must stop!

    I am winning every round of the lawsuit, but NTSSA and US Youth need to now thoroughly investigate and remove Arciniega and his corrupt blind followers.

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

    REQUEST NO. 47: All documents and correspondence that reflect GSA Vice President Piney Burch-Walser’s investigation into Mr. Stephen Luke Martin’s restrictions as a sex offender and whether Director Crystal Martin allowed him access to GSA corporate documents and information about GSA soccer participants who are minors.

    CONCERN: Piney Burch-Walser and Plaintiff exchanged numerous emails on this issue. Piney Burch-Walser routinely forwarded everything to Mr. Arciniega. Ms. Burch-Walser was on the GSA Board until June, 2016, long after the responses to Plaintiff’s Request for Production were due. Ms. Burch-Walser and others should produce responsive emails.

    REQUEST NO. 54: All documents and correspondence, including email, constituting or related to Plaintiff’s formal complaint to GSA Vice President Piney Burch-Walser concerning the rigging of GSA elections and use of proxies.

    CONCERN: There are numerous responsive emails around December 9, 2014 from or to Piney Burch-Walser which should be produced. Gayle Brandt is also involved in these emails.
    The original Motion to Compel was filed on July 8th. The attorney that Arciniega is obviously using as his own personal counsel filed the responses days later (long after they were due.) Therefor all objections were waived and the judge should require GSA and David Arciniega to turn over every last shred of document(s) that I requested.

    These are just a few examples of the document requests that the defendants claimed they had no responsive document(s) for that involve the former VP, Piney Burch-Walser.

    The questions are:

    1. Did David Arciniega even inform her and the other board members (Burch-Walser was on the board when the responses were due) that they were obligated to turn over any responsive documents in their control? All attorneys are officers of the court and those requests must be honored.

    2. Did Piney Burch-Walser tell Arciniega that she was not willing to turn over the documents?

    3. Did David Arciniega instruct her not to turn over the documents?

    Piney Burch-Walser and Terry Walser both lost elections in 2012 and 2010 respectively for VP as Kim Verity ran against them and had armies of referees coming in with proxies. I have a referee that will testify that the referee assignor Gayle Brandt and her husband handed him a proxy and told him that he needed to "help out" and was to go in to a meeting (that referees never attend) for the sole purpose of voting for Kim Verity. So, why are the fruits of that investigation being hidden and why is David Arciniega claiming no documentation exists?

    Fear of retaliation and harassment by David Arciniega has completely crippled GSA. Arciniega was involved in all those very serious issues. It is no mystery that David Arciniega knew full well those document.s exist and chose to deliberately lie about it to the court.


    Information Regarding Your Written Discovery Responses - Law Firm Leonard M. Roth, Attorney at Law Attorneys Houston, Texas
    You must answer this Discovery completely and truthfully. If you don't, you may be sanctioned (punished) by the Judge. As I have written above, this sanctioning could include striking part of your side of the lawsuit or a monetary fine, you and/or your witnesses may not be allowed to testify, you may not be able to bring out certain evidence at trial, or you may lose everything you wanted to accomplish in this lawsuit. Consequently, discovery must be taken very seriously and fully complied with in every way.
    If Don't Want the Court to Punish You, Don’t Play Games in Discovery!
    Let Go of the Uncooperative Client – If I have a client who is clearly being uncooperative in discovery, I make it very clear that if they do not cooperate, they will need to hire another lawyer. I don’t do this to punish them. In the end, it is the court that will sanction them. Instead, if I help my client play games with the court or the other side, I too may be sanctioned by the court. In other words, I am not the type of lawyer that walks a fine line with my ethics and my reputation before the court. Afterwards, if my client still plays games, then as a last resort I ask the court to relieve me as their lawyer.
    Foolish Attorney - Ten Ways to Make Yourself Look Bad
    An ATTORNEY cannot communicate with a represented party, but the parties can continue to communicate to their hearts’ content. The cynical part of me thinks that I get these letters specifically because the attorney is fearful that the matter will be resolved if the parties talk it out. Don’t make the false claim that the parties cannot speak.
    So, the current and former board members and I will be talking! Piney Burch-Walser was one of several board members that would have been subpoenaed to appear for the Motion to Compel hearing if it had not been cancelled due to the Abatement hearing scheduled earlier on the same day. Do these board members really want to have to testify in court?

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

    REQUEST NO. 7: All documents, materials, correspondence and emails reflecting all the financial records that were made available to North Texas State Soccer Association concerning any slow payments, missed or missing payments, and overcharges by Jevin, Inc. to GSA.
    REQUEST NO. 10: All documents and correspondence, including email, that reflect that the payment processor Corduro, Inc. was responsible for any missing funds owed by Jevin, Inc. to GSA.
    REQUEST NO. 12: All documents and correspondence that reflect that a lawsuit had been filed by Jevin, Inc. and/or Daniel Ptak against Corduro, Inc. as David Arciniega told the GSA members verbally in September 2013 and in the minutes published in the November 2013 coaches’ letter.
    REQUEST NO. 13: All documents that pertain to the $50,000.00 in total losses that David Arciniega claimed during a GSA Board Meeting that Jevin, Inc. suffered due to Corduro, Inc. handling the payments for various entities, including but not limited to GSA, which entities used/use the Jevin, Inc. software.
    Defendant stated that it had no documents in its possession responsive to these requests. Specifically, I made complaints, filed grievances, and made inquiries of NTSSA numerous times regarding Jevin and the missing funds that were never documented. I was brought up on a no-confidence petition for filing complaints with NTSSA. It appears that NTSSA communicated with Mr. Arciniega regarding my complaints regarding Jevin as there would be no other way Arciniega could have known about them.

    David Arciniega stated to member coaches in September, 2013 and allowed to be published in the GSA Board Meeting Minutes in November 2013 that Jevin and the payment processor, Corduro, were involved in ongoing litigation. If there are no responsive documents, where did Mr. Arciniega obtain this information? Why in the Sam hell is the board being forced to continue to use Jevin and make its decisions with zero documentation?

    David Arciniega is on the NTSSA board. He refuses to produce a shred of documentation about financial issues. Since when were money issues secret in charities?

    CONCUSSIONS
    A concussion is a type of traumatic brain in jury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth. Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious. If an athlete reports one or more symptoms of concussion after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body, s/he should be kept out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional, experienced in evaluating for concussion, says s/he is symptom-free and it’s OK to return to play. Know the signs/symptoms of a concussion.

    SIGNS OBSERVED BY COACHING STAFF
    SYMPTOMS REPORTED BY ATHLETES
    Appears dazed or stunned
    Headache or “pressure” in head
    Is confused about assignment or position
    Nausea or vomiting
    Forgets an instruction
    Balance problems or dizziness
    Is unsure of game, score, or
    opponent
    Double or blurry vision
    Moves clumsily
    Sensitivity to light
    Answers questions slowly
    Sensitivity to noise
    Loses consciousness (even briefly)
    Feeling sluggish, hazy, foggy, or groggy
    Shows mood, behavior, or personality
    changes
    Concentration or memory problems
    Can’t recall events prior to hit or fall
    Confusion
    Can’t recall events after hit or fall
    Just not “feeling right” or “feeling down”
    CONCUSSION DANGER SIGNS
    In rare cases, a dangerous blood clot may form on the brain in a person with a concussion and crowd the brain against the skull. An athlete should receive immediate medical attention if after a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body s/he exhibits any of the following danger signs:
    • One pupil larger than the other
    • Is drowsy or cannot be awakened
    • A headache that not only does not diminish, but gets worse
    • Weakness, numbness, or d
    ecreased coordination
    • Repeated vomiting or nausea
    • Slurred speech

    . There will always be
    a Board Member on site (see the telephone number list in the beginning of this manual to identify them or check the scorebooth).

    3. If a player should collapse as a result of heat exhaustion, call 9-1-1 immediately. Get the player to drink water and use the instant ice bags supplied in your First-Aid Kit to cool him/her down until the emergency medical team arrives. (See section on Hydration)

    CHILD ABUSE
    Volunteers:
    Volunteers are the greatest resource Little League has in aiding children’s development into leaders of tomorrow. But some potential volunteers maybe attracted to Little League to be near children for abusive reasons. Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America defines child sexual abuse as “the exploitation of a child by an older child, teen or adult for the personal gratification of the abusive individual.”
    So abusing a child can take many forms, from touching to non-
    touching offenses.
    Child victims are usually made to feel as if they have brought the abuse upon themselves; they are made to feel guilty. For this reason, sexual abuse victims seldom disclose the victimization. Consider this: Big Broth ers/Big Sisters of America contend that for every child abuse case reported, ten more go unreported. Children need to understand that it is never their fault, and both children and adults need to know what they can do to keep it from happening. Anyone can be an abuser and it could happen anywhere. By educating parents, volunteers and children, you can help reduce the risk it will happen at North Garland Little League. Like all safety issues, prevention is the key. North Garland Little League has a three-step plan for selecting caring, competent and safe volunteers.

    Interview:
    Make all applicants aware of the policy that no known child-sex offender will be given access to children in the Little League Program.

    Reference/Background Checks:
    Make sure the information given by the applicant is corroborated by references. Criminal background checks will be completed o
    n all volunteers, including NGLL Board Members, NGLL Officers, Umpires, Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and all other volunteers who have direct contact with children registered with the North Garland Little League.

    NGLL SAFETY PLAN 2013
    35
    Reporting:
    In the unfortunate case that child sexual abuse is suspected, you should immediately contact the NGLL President, or a NGLL Board Member if the President is not available, to report the abuse. NGLL along with district administrators will contact the proper law enforcement agencies.
    Ø
    Fiction and Fact “Sex abusers are dirty old men.”
    Not true. While sex abusers cut across socioeconomic levels,
    educational levels and race, the average age of a sex offender has
    been established at 32.
    Ø
    “Strangers are responsible for most of
    the sexual abuse.”
    Fact: an individual familiar to the victim perpetrates 80
    -
    85% of all sexual abuse cases in the US. Less than 20% of all abusers are strangers.
    Ø
    “Most sex abusers suffer from some form of serious mental illness
    or psychosis.”
    Not true. The actual figure is more like 10%, almost exactly the
    same as the figure found in the general population of the United
    States.
    Ø
    “Most sex abusers are homosexuals.”
    Also not true. Most are heterosexual.
    Ø
    “Children usually lie about sexual abuse, anyway.”
    In fact, children rarely lie about being sexually abused. If they
    say it, don’t ignore it.
    Ø
    “It only happens to girls.”
    While females do comprise the largest number of sexual abuse
    victims, it is now believed that the number for male victims is
    much higher than reported.


    Investigation
    NGLL will appoint an individual with significant professional background to receive and act on abuse allegations. These individuals will act in a confidential manner, and serve as the League’s liaison with the local law enforcement community. Little League volunteers should not attempt to investigate suspected abuse on their own.

    NGLL SAFETY PLAN 2013
    36
    Suspending/Termination
    When an allegation of abuse is made against a Little League volunteer, it is our duty to protect the children from any possible further abuse by keeping the alleged abuser away from children in the program. If the allegations are substantiated, the next step is clear
    assuring that the individual will not have any further contact with
    the children in the League.

    Immunity from Liability:
    According to Boys & Girls Clubs of America, “Concern is often expressed over the potential for criminal or civil liability if a report of abuse is subsequently found to be unsubstantiated.” However, we want adults and Little Leaguers to understand that they shouldn’t be afraid to come forward in these cases, even if it isn’t required and
    even if there is a possibility of being wrong. All states provide immunity from liability to those who report suspected child abuse in “good faith.” At the same time, there are also rules in place to protect adults who prove to have been inappropriately accused.
    Make Our Position Clear
    Make adults and kids aware that Little League Baseball and NGLL will not tolerate child abuse, in any form.
    The Buddy System:
    It is an old maxim, but it is true: There is safety in numbers. Encourage kids to move about in a group of two or more children of similar age, whether an adult is present or not. This includes travel, leaving the field, or using the restroom areas. It is far more difficult to victimize a child if they are not alone
    This is from the North Garland Little League. They are doing the right things to keep kids safe. Garland Soccer has nothing in place to keep kids safe or deal with serious issues. I tried to implement policies and procedures like this in Garland Soccer and our corrupt president, David Arciniega, blocked any action even after Garland had had kids raped and harmed. The City of Garland should require all its city sponsored programs to have these policies in place. Garland Soccer is rolling out the red carpet for sex offenders and not doing what is necessary to run a safe program. David Arciniega has destroyed Garland Soccer.

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



    The president of the wildly successful Plano Youth Soccer, that is likely the largest association in North Texas and hosting teams from as far as 5 hours away, spends 31 hours a week as a volunteer to keep it running smoothly. They are incredibly well organized and so very respected.

    Garland Soccer continues to implode. The gross mismanagement and disorganization is destroying GSA. David Arciniega refuses to set reasonable registration dates. Every other association closed registration months ago (many on July 31.) Plano issued final rosters on August 12th with the season set to start on September 10th. Garland is also scheduled to start on September 10, but the U4-U12 schedules just came out on Tuesday, September 6th and the U-13-U19 schedules are nowhere to be found. Some Garland rosters won't be final for weeks to come.

    Registration is still open in Garland for all age group, so the problem of short rosters will likely continue and coaches may get players dropped on them up to the 5th game and be ordering uniforms 3 or 4 times in some cases. Every season start in Garland is totally chaotic thanks to David Arciniega.

    Garland was the second largest association in NTSSA with well over 4000 players when Arciniega took office. The numbers continue to plummet. Even with the new smaller teams being phased in the U4-U12 has shrunk from a minuscule 165 teams in spring 2016 to just 154 this fall.

    Looking at the schedules, 3 U9 teams, under director Jesse Flores, have been scheduled to play when there is still no coach assigned. When I was a Director we never scheduled a team that did not have a coach.

    Flores also directs the Major League (U13-U19), which has no schedules up. How many Major League teams have no coaches? He combined the only remaining U15 boys' team from spring, the Pumas (with the 45 year and only remaining originating coach of the association in charge) with a U14 team from the spring. The Director, Jesse Flores, has very angry coaches who have had communication problems with him for months. So, it is apparent the Major League is continuing to collapse.

    David Arciniega is not putting in the hours necessary to run GSA. How did this incompetent fool get a seat on the North Texas State Board when his own association is has been in crisis and decline for years?
