Happy June - I'm writing with a short update and a special offer from our sponsor Posit Science. I am proud to welcome Posit Science Brain Fitness as a Sponsor for the 2011 Bay Area Senior Games/CA Senior Games Championships! Everyone at Posit Science thrives on challenge and the hope of making a profound difference in people's lives -- shared values by our Senior Games athletes and the Bay Area Senior Games/CA Senior Games Association. All of the athletes at the State Championships - March 26 - April 3 and May 21 & 22 - received Posit Science Resources DVD's in the athlete welcome bags. I hope you have had the opportunity to watch the DVD's as they contain great information. See the article below for a special offer from our friends at Posit Science.
In addition, Pasadena and San Diego North are right in the middle of their Games; and the first annual Wine Country Games are beginning this week. We had a great and spirited soccer tournament at Stanford with 27 teams on May 21 and 22. Results will be in the next e-news, coming very soon.
Finally, California athletes are getting ready to journey to the 2011 Summer National State Games in Houston. We wish them well. ..and we applaud and commend your continuing commitment to exercise -- the key to long, healthy living.

Get Your Brain in the Game
On the sports field, your brain can be one of your biggest assets. After all, your brain controls your body's movements. It's what allows you to react quickly to a ball speeding toward you, process what's happening in your peripheral vision, predict what will happen next, and remember subtle differences in posture or position that improve your performance. And that's just the beginning!
Fortunately, physical exercise is good for the brain-but it's probably not enough alone. Adding specific, effective brain exercise to your training regimen can help. Find out how Dave Demko, a competitive skier, used a brain training program to get an edge on the slope at http://www.positscience.com
For the best brain training, try Posit Science's brain fitness software programs. Their programs are clinically proven by independent researchers to help people think faster, focus better, and remember more-great benefits both on and off the field.
