The 2014 Indoor Season has now begun and as you know, currently we've only posted the first three weeks of the schedule. This was done in order to allow ourselves more time to critically review the rest of the schedule, in order to give you what we hope is your best schedule ever! What do we consider best? A fair distribution of games at all facilities, distribution of kick-off times, and consistent nights of play. There are also a number of other factors that need to be taken into account when scheduling over 2, 500 matches, so it's not always going to be perfect, but we're confident you'll be very happy with your overall schedule this indoor season.
That being said, we will have the rest of the 2014/15 Indoor League schedule uploaded by Saturday, October 25, 2014. All U12 - U18 division homepages will explain your League format and once you've completed the League season, each team will move into the Cambrian Challenge Cup (playoffs). Once the schedule is uploaded, notice will be posted on twitter (@WPGSOCCER) and here on our website!

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.
