Open Transfer Policy
Starting the 2013 Outdoor Season, Open Transfer guidelines have been established for all WYSA players currently registered as Recreational, Developmental, or Premier, 9 years of age and older. An Open Transfer is a permanent transfer to another District Club for the purpose of playing in WYSA’s U9-U12 Developmental League or U13-U18 Premier 1&2 League only. This policy does not circumvent the General Council of Winnipeg Community Centres (GCWCC) family transfer process to permanently change your family Community Centre catchment for Recreational soccer.
Be sure to read the Open Transfer Policy guidelines which provides explanations to eligibility, the application period, placement process and conditions of placement. Additionally please note the reference to Article 9 Tampering, in the WYSA Rules and Regulations. Incidents of Tampering will not be tolerated and will be subject to significant sanction.
The application period for an Open Transfer is January 15 - 30 of each year. All applications for Open Transfer must be submitted to the WYSA Office before January 30 on the appropriate application form found here. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that the application is received by WYSA office by the deadline. Incomplete applications and/or late Applications will not be accepted. There are no limits to the number of players who may apply for Open Transfer. Submission of an application does not signify placement.
Out of Region players will also have the ability to apply for Open Transfers, but must first apply for an Out of Region Transfer into the Winnipeg Region through the Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA). Once the Out of Region Transfer is approved by the MSA, WYSA can process the Open Transfer application. Click here for a copy of the MSA's Out of Region Transfer Request form.
Please note that the deadline for applications to the MSA for Out of Region placements is February 15th every year for the Outdoor Season.
