The Arbiter Newsletter of BASRA, Inc. Bay Area Soccer Referee Association PO Box 57853 Webster, TX 77598-7853 Summer 2005 SOCCER RECERTIFICATION EVENT SCHEDULED Bay Area Soccer Referee Association is proud to host the Bay Area Super Saturday Recertification Event, Saturday, July 23, Gilruth Center at NASA JSC, as a service to its Members and to the referee community in general. Activities include: 2006 USSF Recertification sessions presented by State Instructors, Testing & registration for 2006 (bring your USSF form), Drawings for door prizes, Referee equipment vendor on site, and Special Luncheon Guest Speaker Ed Bellion. Ed is a National Instructor and former International Referee. Along with Bob Evans, he co-wrote "For the Good of the Game," considered "...an indispensable guide for a beginning referee...” He will speak on "The Emotion of the Game." The clinic fee will be paid by BASRA for BASRA members; others will be charged the standard $20. Registration for the clinic includes lunch provided by Mediterraneo Market and Café. Registration will begin promptly at 8:00am with the Luncheon from 12:00 to 1:30. The day concludes at 5:00pm. To pre-register, contact Menno Homburg at 281-337-3467 or firstname.lastname@example.org ENTRY LEVEL ASSESSORS CLINIC IN HOUSTON An Entry Level Clinic for new assessors has been scheduled for August 5, 6 and 7 in Houston. We are pushing to have it in the Bay Area; this becomes more likely if a large number of Bay Area folks sign up. Contact either Menno or Richard Aguilar for more information and to get your name on the list. BASRA MEETING SCHEDULE With BAYSA handling their own assigning and payments, the need for two meetings a month during the Fall is diminished. We will cut back to one meeting on the second Thursday of each month. The August Eatin’ Meetin’, normally the fourth Thursday in August, will not be held (come to Super Saturday instead!), but the December Eatin’ Meetin’ is still firm. If you can’t make Super Saturday, we will continue to offer Recertification training at our monthly meetings at no charge. PAYMENT FOR BAYSA MATCHES All BAYSA matches worked through Fall 2004 (under the old Agreement) can still be submitted to BASRA for payment. Bring the Games Roster and Game Card tabs to any BASRA meeting, or mail them to the address shown under BASRA Officers at the end of this newsletter. CHANGES AT STSR, INC. Dick Triche has been announced as the Acting State Director of Instruction. Dick has been a member of BASRA for many years, even though he lives on Houston’s near west side. He is a former SRA and is a National Referee Emeritus.

And, the summer tournaments are coming! That’s a potentially dangerous – even deadly – combination. For your sake, please remember to hydrate yourself before, during and after a match. That means drink lots of water and/or sports drinks. Drink more than you think you need, and avoid caffeinated drinks. Use sun screen with a high SPF. If needed, wear a hat and/or sunglasses (just not the reflective kind). Seek shade between halves and matches. Don’t do too many games in a day, and allow for a break or two. For the kids’ sake, consider allowing a water break during each half at a convenient stoppage. Watch the players for signs of heat stress; make a player leave the field if s/he seems to be getting overheated (injury substitution). Signs of heat exhaustion include cool, clammy, pale skin; sweating; dry mouth; weakness; dizziness; headache; nausea; muscle cramps; weak and rapid pulse. Signs of heat stroke include very high body temperature; hot, dry, red skin; no sweating; deep breathing and fast pulse, then shallow breathing and weak pulse; dilated pupils; confusion; convulsions; loss of consciousness. To treat these, move to a cool place in the shade, loosen clothing, give fluids such as cool or cold water and/or sport drinks, and get medical help. AND THE END OF THE WHISTLE – from MENNO HOMBURG After all that the Arbiter has said and listed before this article, what can we add? All our excitement is currently for the BASRA Super Saturday on July 23, just a few short weeks from now. This promises to be a great event. We have as a Guest Speaker a person we should look forward to hearing speak. The co- author of “For the Good of the Game” and a former International Referee to boot! What an experience it would be to listen to this man! We will also have a number of renowned Guest Instructors for the Clinic! And, to top it off, Lunch will be served free of charge to all clinic participants! We may even bring some donuts for breakfast, but don’t tell everyone! If you are planning to join us at this Recertification Clinic, please pre-register – just to make sure we will have enough donuts! We were very sorry to hear that the Texas City Fun Fest Tournament simply could not come up with the number of teams to make for a good tournament. The regular tournament in August is still on though! I urge all of you to participate in these Summer tournaments as much as possible to get yourselves into shape for the Fall Season, wherever you decide to do Games. BASRA, Inc. will be there to help any of you out whenever you need some help. There will be an entry level Assessor Clinic in early August. We are planning to have a number of people attend this Clinic so that we will be able to help you out during the 2005 Fall Season and help you whenever you need us. This year, we are not planning to have the August Eating Meeting, unless you, in great numbers, insist that we do! That’s a subtle hint! And we have also decided to hold meetings on the second Thursday of the Month only. Circumstances have indicated that decision to be a reasonable one. So, we all are looking forward to seeing you at our Super Saturday, as well as the regular meetings. One last word, as I am recovering from my first cataract surgery and enjoying clear sight through one eye, I remember asking the Doctor what may have caused this condition. One possibility he mentioned was extended exposure to sunlight. Then I remember I spent many Saturdays and Sundays out on the Soccer Fields, out in the Sun! All that great fun actually may have contributed to my having cataracts. You may want to consider making sure that aside from your exposed skin, your eyes, too, are properly protected. Believe me, clear sight is wonderful, as I have just found out! Have a great Summer!
