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.
