The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is leading a special task force with the Manitoba Soccer Association to introduce new Long-term Player Development Guidelines. The new program starts with doing a better job of coaching our coaches, but it's end goal is better skill development and enjoyment of the game for children from age 4 up. Our ultimate goal is to improve skills and increase lifelong participation in soccer.
We've created a special newsletter with more information on this important initiative. A printed copy of the newsletter was distributed to every youth soccer team (recreational, developmental and premier-developmental) in the city this week. You can also download a PDF copy here.
The task force is meeting regularly now and expects to bring forth recommendations to the city's soccer community later this year.
The process you need to be involved in is the Out Of Region Transfer. Individual players from outside the boundaries of WYSA must submit their requests to participate in WYSA’s Premier and Regional programs to the Manitoba Soccer Association. Once approved by the MSA, the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association will place the player based on their current domicile (just like all other WYSA players living in Winnipeg). To view where you would be placed, please click here. However, there are a few exceptions to the placement map, which are as follows: St. Charles Soccer Association catchment also includes - Stonewall, Grosse Isle, Argyle, Woodlands, Warren, Headingly, Elie, St. Francis Xavier, Oakville, Portage La Prairie and Brandon.
For the Outdoor Season, these requests must be submitted to the Manitoba Soccer Association by January 1st.
For the Indoor Season, these requests must be submitted to the Manitoba Soccer Association by September 1st.
