Mystix Romp To First BAS Bowl Victory

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011



After failing to clinch victory in the 2010 inaugural BAS Bowl Championship, the Mystix were keen to show the soccer community that they could be deserved champions in last Sunday’s 2011 title match.

The season threatened to end the same way it started, but the heavy rain that preceded the contest passed and the Mystix and divisional rivals, UKS got down to business.

After a tentative and scoreless 20 minutes, the Mystix seemed to rachet up the offense and began to overwhelm UKS with spirited odd-man rushes and quick attacks down the flanks. UKS had done well getting to the final stage, but it was clear on this day that the Mystix were not to be denied.

Scoring 3 times in the first and 4 times in the second half, the Mystix cruised to their first BAS Bowl title, shutting out UKS in the process.

A hat trick by Kimberley Beckles netted her Girl-Of-The-Game honours.

The victory also secured the treble title for the Mystix as Division Champs, Playoff Champs, and BAS Bowl Champs for 2011.

BAS Charity Shield 2011

Monday, April 25th, 2011

In April 2010 a few members of the BAS community turned a regular friendly that had been ongoing for a number of years into a night to remember.  At the end of April each year, different Branches/Members of the Referee Communities play in a tournament against one another in which they hang up their whistles, strap on their playing boots and take the field to play for the love of the game and of course the bragging rights.

Each year before the tournament the OSRA Brampton team previously played a friendly, which was very low key and not open to many, against a team in the BAS to prepare.   In 2010 one of the members in the BAS Community posted a topic on the Soccer Talkers, the official BAS forums, regarding a fund raising event in which he participates in each year.  Looking for some possible support from the community he was pleasantly surprised with the support he received.

One of the OSRA Brampton Members read the thread and not only donated his game fee for one of his games in the BAS but also challenged other OSRA Brampton Referee’s to jump in an do the same.  A separate contributor engaged by this referee did the same and thought up yet another way to help the cause and as Captain of the OSRA Brampton Referee team, threw out the idea of having their regular friendly as a charity match.  This turned into a whirl wind effect with the OSRA Brampton President creating and selling event programmes to donate all the proceeds to the cause, attended by 50+ spectators, cheerleaders family and friends, with a lot of help from the BAS Charity Shield game the original posting member was able to raise over $2000 in total for the Walk Now for Autism event in which he participated with his family.

With the success of the BAS Charity Shield in 2010 we will be hosting this event once again to benefit the same cause on Wednesday April 27th at the Brampton Soccer Centre.  The Charity Match is scheduled to kick off at 8:00PM on field D and we are hoping to have the entire BAS community out to support not only the cause but also whatever team you would like to cheer on.  Some of you will be out to support the referees however most of you will truly enjoy watching your fellow BAS players play against them!

There will be a small group there to help collect donations at the event with all BAS players donating in order to play as well as the referees.

Here is some further information regarding the cause and our community member who is directly impacted by your steps to assist in his personal mission:

Ever since the diagnosis of our son, Tyler, with autism, my family has done what we can to try to support organizations that support families dealing with it.

Once again, we are participating in Walk Now for Autism to help find the missing pieces of the autism puzzle. Autism one of the most common developmental disorder in the North America affecting one in every 150 children born today. Despite some promising discoveries, the cause of autism is unknown and a cure does not exist. Research is crucial. Not only must we find ways to improve the quality of life for children and adults with autism, but we also must find a cure, and soon.

Walk Now for Autism is our chance to make a difference in the autism community by raising money for autism research and heightening public awareness.

Autism Speaks Canada is a non-profit, registered charitable organization. Donations of $20 or more will be issued an official tax receipt. Charitable number 869420208 RR0001.

Last year, with a lot of help from this Charity Shield game and the participants, volunteers and fans, we were able to raise over $2000 in total.

Thank you in advance for your support, and we look forward to seeing many of you at the game.

Girls Night In (Benefiting Women’s Cancer Research)

Thursday, December 10th, 2009

Girls Night InGirls Night In is simple – you invite your girlfriends over for a fun night ‘IN’ and you each donate what you feel you would normally spend on a night out to the Canadian Cancer Society. All the proceeds from your entertaining evening in, go towards women’s cancer research.

As a host, you can choose to do whatever you like in terms of structuring how the evening will go and you can do it, whenever it  will work best for you and your friends.  For instance the evening can be organized as a night where you simply sit back and catch-up with one another, or, it can be planned as a special evening, themed or with a focus.  Even simpler, you can just add it to an evening you already have planned.

The ‘Girls Night In‘ website is comprehensive in it’s coverage of the event and very interactive.  Please take a few moments to check it out at

You can find a very thorough “Host Kit” on the site that contains all the elements that you, as a host, would need to independently run and manage your very own ‘Girls Night In’. The ‘Host Kit’ includes an assortment of organizational materials like invitations, donation forms and potential theme ideas that you may like to use.
