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!

The Manitoba Soccer Association has recently introduced a social media policy for all participants of the sport of soccer! The policy can be summarized in four basic principles:
1. Be truthful, respectful, polite, and fair
2. Do not say things that you would not want said of you
3. Use social media only when appropriate
4. Keep appropriate and common sense barriers between participants, such as between coaches or team staff and players
To view the entire policy, please click here.
Players are not permitted to wear anything that is dangerous to themselves or other players. This includes any kind of jewelry, regardless of the material, such as: rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, or other visible body piercings are strictly forbidden and must be removed. Medical alert bracelets are permissible but must be either made of velcro or a similar soft material or covered with a sweatband.
The practice of taping jewelry is not acceptable (CSA Rule 10.3.5). WYSA did make provision for the removal of jewelry a few years ago by allowing (with permission of the Manitoba Soccer Association) a plastic retainer to be inserted in place of the jewelry for recent piercings. These plastic retainers are not considered jewelry and are not dangerous.
