The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is leading a special task force with the Manitoba Soccer Association to introduce new Long-term Player Development Guidelines. The new program starts with doing a better job of coaching our coaches, but it's end goal is better skill development and enjoyment of the game for children from age 4 up. Our ultimate goal is to improve skills and increase lifelong participation in soccer.
We've created a special newsletter with more information on this important initiative. A printed copy of the newsletter was distributed to every youth soccer team (recreational, developmental and premier-developmental) in the city this week. You can also download a PDF copy here.
The task force is meeting regularly now and expects to bring forth recommendations to the city's soccer community later this year.

The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is proud to announce the kickoff of its 3rd season of the Mobile Mini Soccer Program! The Mobile Mini Soccer Program offers a free one-hour soccer session to children aged four to eight, at various locations in the inner-city throughout the summer. The sessions are structured to introduce children to the beautiful game by a certified coach coordinator and premier players from local youth district soccer clubs. The youth players not only help coordinate the activities, they are often regarded as role-models for the mini soccer players, a role they embrace.
Since 2013, the program has seen approximately 1,600 children participate, providing them the opportunity to get active and learn some new soccer skills. “We have built some momentum over the past two years and I know some of the kids are already talking and looking forward to this year’s program” said Carlo Bruneau, WYSA Executive Director. “By bringing the game to them, we’re hoping to give children an opportunity they might not otherwise have.”
The program is supported by the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association, Manitoba Soccer Association, and Tim Hortons in conjunction with WYSA’s five district soccer clubs. The program runs 6 PM – 7 PM, May 11 to June 11, Monday to Thursday, at Dufferin School, Brooklands School, Lord Selkirk School and Central Park respectively.

Starting the 2013 Outdoor Season, Open Transfer guidelines have been established for all competitive players (D-League and Premier/Premier-Developmental) 9 years of age and older. An Open Transfer is a permanent transfer to another District Club (as opposed to an Inter-District Transfer which is only seasonal). This process is not applicable for Recreational players.
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.
