The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) was created in 1982 to coordinate the operation of youth soccer within the City of Winnipeg and its surrounding areas. It has created and operates, with the help of its district club members, a league structure for boys and girls aged 9 to 18. WYSA currently operates a U9 - U18 Recreational League, U9 - U12 Developmental League, U13 - U18 Premier/Premier-Developmental League and an Indoor High School Soccer League. The goal of WYSA is to make soccer available to all boys and girls and an opportunity to play the game in an environment commensurate with their skills and interests. The association also plans for the future of the game in the city. In addition to those structures now in operation, WYSA looks forward to the day when Soccer becomes a truly year round sport, with an Indoor program to rival the Outdoor program.
