The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is proud to announce the kickoff of its 3rd season of the Mobile Mini Soccer Program! The Mobile Mini Soccer Program offers a free one-hour soccer session to children aged four to eight, at various locations in the inner-city throughout the summer. The sessions are structured to introduce children to the beautiful game by a certified coach coordinator and premier players from local youth district soccer clubs. The youth players not only help coordinate the activities, they are often regarded as role-models for the mini soccer players, a role they embrace.
Since 2013, the program has seen approximately 1,600 children participate, providing them the opportunity to get active and learn some new soccer skills. “We have built some momentum over the past two years and I know some of the kids are already talking and looking forward to this year’s program” said Carlo Bruneau, WYSA Executive Director. “By bringing the game to them, we’re hoping to give children an opportunity they might not otherwise have.”
The program is supported by the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association, Manitoba Soccer Association, and Tim Hortons in conjunction with WYSA’s five district soccer clubs. The program runs 6 PM – 7 PM, May 11 to June 11, Monday to Thursday, at Dufferin School, Brooklands School, Lord Selkirk School and Central Park respectively.

The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is proud to announce a new multi-year partnership with Boston Pizza! As part of the partnership, one of Western Canada’s biggest summer soccer tournaments will have a new name - Boston Pizza Players Tournament which will raise funds for WYSA’s new player subsidy fund. This summer marks the first annual Boston Pizza Players Tournament which it is hoped that we will raise $10,000 for a new player subsidy fund to help those families who may miss out on playing simply because their families can’t afford to pay the fees. In addition to the tournament, Boston Pizza will also support several other WYSA programs.
"Boston Pizza has long been a place for soccer teams, families, and fans to get together and enjoy meals", said Andrew Shefchyk, Director of Marketing for Boston Pizza. "We are very proud to support the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association and this tournament that will enable more children and youth to play and enjoy the beautiful game!"
“Boston Pizza is a great fit for the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association and positive step forward in strengthening our community partnerships,” said Carlo Bruneau, Executive Director of WYSA. “Boston Pizza has a very strong track record of community involvement and we’re extremely pleased to have their brand associated with youth soccer here in Winnipeg.”
The Boston Pizza Players Tournament runs June 3rd – 7th, 2015 at John Blumberg Sportsplex and Grant Park Fields. The tournament has attracted 155 total teams, including teams from Ontario and South Dakota. The finals will be held on Sunday, June 7th at John Blumberg Sportsplex.
