A new set of By-Laws will be posted on the WYSA website and sent to the membership within the next seven days. Over the coming months, the Association will be working to improve its communications with the membership and plans to propose a new Constitution that will be in line with the new Constitution coming down from the Manitoba Soccer Association. WYSA expects to consult with its members in the months ahead on a number of important matters including governance issues and the overall vision and strategic direction for the organization.
The Association is also pleased to inform its members that Booke and Partners presented a clean audit of the 2012 - 2013 financial statements.

Can you please explain to me why there needs to be a same-gender team official on the bench of my child?
The reason there needs to be a same gender team official on the bench is for safety and security. All teams must have at least one adult of the same gender as the players, as one of the team officials in attendance. This person, must be on the team bench and identified on all game sheets, and must not be a registered player on the team. Teams not having an adult of the same gender, will result in the game being cancelled and points defaulted (grace time will apply as with the players). The same gender team official is not required to have an identification card.
