Children's Hospital Outdoor Soccer Tournament
CHILDREN'S HOSPITAL FOUNDATION SOCCER TOURNAMENT
In 1991 the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. held its first Children's Hospital event with only four teams, and raised $500.00 for the charity. Since its inception, this competition has become extremely popular. Since 1999, the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association Inc. has actually had to turn teams away, as the tournament has been filled to capacity with community club teams aged nine to eighteen. The 2013 event was our best tournament event ever with 202 teams registered in which we raised $25, 000 dollars for the Childrens Hospital Foundation!!
Over the course of this tournament's history, the annual event has now raised $315,000 dollars for the Children's Hospital Foundation. The success of this tournament, held during the first weekend of June, comes from the many volunteers involved and teams involved. We could not accomplish what we have without the support of the many volunteers (including the referees who donated their time), field marshalls and members of the district clubs.
