The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Carlo Bruneau as its new Executive Director effective February 12, 2013.
Carlo joins WYSA from the Manitoba Soccer Association where he served as Special Events and Competitions Coordinator for the past five years. Well-versed in the trends shaping the youth game today, Carlo brings a high level of organizational expertise to his new role.
“I am thrilled to take on this role leading WYSA. Soccer is the most popular youth sport in Winnipeg and the level of skill and competition seems to improve every year,” said Bruneau. “We still have lots of room for improvement though and I look forward to working with staff, clubs and community centres to enhance how WYSA administers its leagues.”
WYSA is the largest youth soccer league administrator in Manitoba. In addition to managing all premier, premier-developmental and developmental leagues (from ages 9 through 18), WYSA oversees recreational soccer leagues for community centres from ages 13 to 18. It also supports district soccer associations who administer the recreational leagues for ages 9 through 12. In recent years, WYSA has managed high school indoor and outdoor soccer leagues and has played a key role in bringing soccer programming to disadvantaged youth in Winnipeg’s core areas.
“We’re excited to have Carlo join our organization. He is tremendously knowledgeable about the game and system here in the province, and he brings a fresh energy and perspective,” said Tom Thompson, President of WYSA. “Our main objective is to run the best possible soccer leagues we can and to encourage participation in the game at all skill levels. It would be hard to find someone with more passion for those things than Carlo.”
