The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is holding its annual general meeting on October 21, at which time the membership will be electing the following positions:
Vice-President (2 year term)
Director of Finance (2 year term)
Director of Outdoor (1 year term)
Director of Indoor (2 year term)
Director of Communications (2 year term)
Director-at-large (2 year term)
We have made great strides at WYSA in recent years, improving the level of service we offer our members, players, families and volunteers. We're proud of the improvements we've made, but we can still do more.
The WYSA board is made up of independent elected directors and appointed representatives from the five districts. While originally conceived as an operational board, in recent years the board has deliberately moved to a model where the board governs while paid staff administer the day to day operations of the league.
The board and organization are stable and have a solid financial foundation. We work closely with our member district clubs and community centres to ensure our youth can play the game at the level they choose. We are working hard to diversify our revenue through sponsorships, tournaments and as a service provider to other organizations (ie. we administer the indoor high school soccer league). That helps us keep a lid on player fees while expanding our capacity to improve our offerings.
WYSA administers recreational and competitive leagues for indoor and outdoor soccer, serving more than 10,000 players. We would like to grow the game and make it better. If you want that too and are interested in learning more about serving on the WYSA board, contact me confidentially at firstname.lastname@example.org
