Change 1: Rule 4 Players' Equipment
1. Only indoor soccer shoes or shoes specifically designed for artificial turf shall be allowed. Molded cleats may only be worn on FIFA approved third generation turf.
Exception: For All Leagues. Cleats.
Molded cleats are allowed at Seven-Oaks, Skylight & the WSF Indoor Complex facility; however, independently screw-in studded cleats are not permitted.
The change is that Skylight as now indicated that outdoor style cleats may now be worn at its facility.
Change 2: Rule 12 Fouls and Misconducts
5 h) Should a player from each opposing team receive a five minute (dismissal) time penalty at the same time, the players shall be sent off and the use of substitutes shall not be permitted. If a third player is dismissed his team shall play "short" in accordance with 5b of this Rule; player from that team receives a five (5) minute penalty.
This change is being made in order to bring the rule into accordance with the earlier change of 5 L). Now, in cases where two opposing players are either both cautioned or dismissed, teams will not be permitted to make a substitution to replace the penalized players and will play short a player during the time penalty.

Please note this reminder to all WYSA indoor officials (including High School) that the following procedure MUST take place prior to every game.
All teams will shake hands with their opponents before every match (approved on September 28, 2008).
Having the players line up for an equipment check followed by handshake and then coin toss will take approximately one minute if done in an organized manner.
Check the players equipment:
1. Shin guards covered by socks
2. Shirt tucked in, sleeves rolled down & shorts at proper length
3. All jewellery removed other than medic alert tags (made safe)
4. Nothing dangerous (no watches, no metal hair clips, knee braces covered)
AT THIS TIME THE TEAMS WILL SHAKE HANDS
Handshaking prior to the game does not replace the handshakes afterwards which is the sporting thing to do after any game.

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.
