Do you love soccer? Do you want to help make it run better for children in Winnipeg?
The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is holding its annual general meeting on October 21, at which time the membership will be electing the following positions:

We have made great strides at WYSA in recent years, improving the level of service we offer our members, players, families and volunteers. We're proud of the improvements we've made, but we can still do more.
The WYSA board is made up of independent elected directors and appointed representatives from the five districts. While originally conceived as an operational board, in recent years the board has deliberately moved to a model where the board governs while paid staff administer the day to day operations of the league.
The board and organization are stable and have a solid financial foundation. We work closely with our member district clubs and community centres to ensure our youth can play the game at the level they choose. We are working hard to diversify our revenue through sponsorships, tournaments and as a service provider to other organizations (ie. we administer the indoor high school soccer league). That helps us keep a lid on player fees while expanding our capacity to improve our offerings.
WYSA administers recreational and competitive leagues for indoor and outdoor soccer, serving more than 10,000 players. We would like to grow the game and make it better. If you want that too and are interested in learning more about serving on the WYSA board, contact me confidentially at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHAT IS LONG TERM PLAYER DEVELOPMENT (LTPD)?
LTPD Is about putting the player first and offering age-appropriate opportunities for kids to enjoy the game of soccer. Making the game fun is key in teaching and coaching, so that players will continue in the game and may even coach or referee as they get older. More specifically, LTPD is a model of athlete development that parallels what doctors and psychologists have long used to better understand human development: as a series of distinct stages, which takes us from infancy through to adulthood. A person's abilities, behavious and emotions, as well as their understanding of the world around them, varies from stage to stage.
Similarly, experts in sport science have identified seven stages of development — each with its own physical and psychological characteristics —that form the basis for LTPD. When young soccer players are able to train and compete in an evironment that's appropriate to their stage of development, they not only perform at their best, they also have more fun.
| In other words, LTPD is designed to give players an optimal soccer experience at every stage by putting their needs front and center |
In order to accomplish this goal, the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) with the District Clubs and Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA) and Canadian Soccer Association (CSA) has introduced changes designed to encourage more playing time for every player, enhance skill development, improve coaching and generally make the game more fun to play! Whether you dream of playing for Canada's National Team or simply want to have fun with friends, taking the right approach to the game when children are young sets the stage for a lifetime of enjoyment! As well, new and better coach education is a critical element of the Canadian Soccer Association (CSA), Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA) and Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association's (WYSA) new Long Term Player Development (LTPD) initiative.
