Winnipeg, April 26, 2013 – The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association will kick off its outdoor season tonight on artificial turf at the Waverley Soccer Complex. The unseasonably cold and snowy spring will delay the use of natural grass fields for at least two more weeks.
“This really highlights the need for more artificial turf fields in our city. Bad weather is common here, so we should prepare for it,” said Tom Thompson, President of the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association. “With artificial turf fields, we can start the season earlier and end it later. We can also play four times as many games on them without risk of damage.”
WYSA is advising its leagues that the recreational leagues for ages U13 to U18 will begin play as scheduled using the artificial turf fields at the Waverley Soccer Complex. Weather permitting, it expects to begin allowing play on natural grass fields in two to three weeks, including for U9 to U12 recreational and developmental teams and for U13 to U18 premier and premier-developmental teams.
“We need a lot of sun and wind to melt the snow and dry the fields,” said Carlo Bruneau, WYSA Executive Director. “We’ll start using the fields as soon as it is safe and practical to do so. We will reschedule cancelled games as quickly as we can, but the weather this year might mean we have to play a slightly shorter season.”
WYSA reminds soccer teams and all Winnipeggers to be gentle on sports fields this spring until they have dried up. Wet and muddy fields can be easily and badly damaged by sports teams.
The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association administers youth soccer leagues for ages U9 to U18 in the City of Winnipeg. For more information regarding schedules and game cancellations, please visit www.WinnipegYouthSoccer.com.
As discussed at the coaches meeting, click here to view the U13 - U18 Recreational Games scheduled between April 26 to May 8, 2013. The online Schedules and Standings have also been updated to reflect the scheduled games.
Slide tackling IS permitted at all ages for the outdoor season (not permitted during indoor season). Incorrect information appears in the printed edition of the 2013 WYSA Spring Newsletter.
The laws of the game state:
A direct free kick is awarded to the opposing team if a player commits any of the following seven offences in a manner considered by the referee to be careless, reckless or using excessive force:
- kicks or attempts to kick an opponent
- trips or attempts to trip an opponent
- jumps at an opponent
- charges an opponent
- strikes or attempts to strike an opponent
- pushes an opponent
- tackles an opponent
A player is guilty of serious foul play if he uses excessive force or brutality against an opponent when challenging for the ball when it is in play.
A tackle that endangers the safety of an opponent must be sanctioned as serious foul play.
Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force and endangering the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play.
Advantage should not be applied in situations involving serious foul play unless there is a clear subsequent opportunity to score a goal. The referee must send off the player guilty of serious foul play when the ball is next out of play.
A player who is guilty of serious foul play should be sent off and play is restarted with a direct free kick from the position where the offence occurred or a penalty kick (if the offence occurred inside the offender's penalty area).

Despite the challenges we are facing with the weather, the 2013 WYSA Outdoor Season will kick-off on April 26 at the Waverley Soccer Complex (WSC). Only RECREATIONAL matches will take place throughout the weekend and following 2 weeks at the WSC, as we have to start their season due to their limited playing dates of only May / June. The schedule of matches for the first weekend and following 2 weeks will be posted on the WYSA Homepage (here). Recreational teams will continue to play matches at the WSC until the natural grass fields become playable, which we now expect to be around mid-May. We will try to accommodate the schedule requests that we have received, however, due to the weather delays we may not be able to accommodate every request.
The U13 - U18 Premier & Premier-Developmental League will kick-off at the WSC on May 10, 2013.
The U9 - U12 Developmental League will kick-off on May 13, 2013.
Online schedule (ITSN) - As we have had to re-do each schedule, we don't expect to have them uploaded until the first week of May, so until then, all games will be posted on the WYSA Homepage (here).

the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is looking for a Coach Coordinator to run its 5 week Mobile Mini Soccer Program, May 11 - June 11! Click here for the complete job description! The application deadline is April 30, 2015.
One of Western Canada’s biggest summer soccer tournaments has a new name and a new cause! Known as the Children’s Hospital Tournament for the last 23 years, the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is proud to announce the tournament has a new name and a new cause, to help players who can't afford to play the game! The contributions from subsidy programs that exist today are shrinking and while it was an extremely difficult decision, the WYSA Board of Directors felt it made sense for soccer to start supporting soccer! To read more about this, please click here!
Team registration for the 2015 Outdoor Season has now closed and we are in the process of compiling the registrations from each District to form our divisions and start the scheduling process! We hope to have the first 3 weeks of the schedule (April 24 - May 15) completed and posted online by April 8. The rest of the seasonal schedule will be available by April 24 so that we have some time to scrutinize and smooth out the schedule for each team and division. Looking for info on U9 - U12 LTPD, view our LTPD menu tab above for more resources!
The U9-U12 Recreational League season is administered by each individual district, so please contact them directly with questions pertaining to schedules and days of play. WYSA and the Districts will host the season ending Jamboree on July 4 & 5, 2015 at Grant Park Fields!
The U13-U18 Recreational League will kick-off on turf at the Waverley Soccer Complex on April 24, 2015.Grass field matches will begin on May 4, 2015 continue until June 26, 2015. All divisions will have 12-14 regular season matches. The Cambrian Challenge Cup (playoffs) will begin on August 31 (no matches September 4-7) with the Finals on Saturday, September 26, 2015.
U13/U15/U17 will typically play Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday*
U14/U16/U18 will typically play Monday, Wednesday and Friday*
Make up matches may be scheduled on off days of play.
The U9-U12 Developmental League will kick-off on May 4, 2015.and run to July 9. No matches will be scheduled between July 10 and August 2. The season will resume August 3 and run to September 13 - September 12/13 WYSA and the Districts will host the season ending Jamboree at Grant Park Fields!
Typically days of play*
U9s - Monday; U10s - Tuesday; U11s - Wednesday; U12s - Thursdays
Make up matches will be scheduled on Friday/Saturday
The U13-U18 Premier 1 & 2 League will kick-off on May 4, 2015 and run until September 19/20. Each division will have 14-16 total regular season matches. This year, we are trying a new format to the Cambrian Challenge Cup to put more emphasis on league standings - divisions of 7 or less, only the top 4 teams will make the CCC, and divisions of 8 or more only the top 6 teams make the CCC. This exact format will be explained on each divisions homepage. We are working very hard to have a consistent night of play for each Premier division thereby giving you only 1 match per week, however, it becomes extremely challenging when you mix in pooled teams, out-of-town teams, team travel, and of course referee/field availability. We will post the typical days of play for each division as the picture becomes clearer.
Please note there will be no WYSA League matches on the following dates:
June 3 - 7, 2015 - WYSA Outdoor Tournament (more details TBA soon!)
June 8, 12, 15, & 16 - FIFA Women's World Cup Match Dates
MSA Cup Match Days (age specific)
Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays of long weekends, but matches may be scheduled on the Monday night.
*Please note these are the typical days of play in which you can reasonably expect the majority of your matches to be scheduled. We make every effort to stick to them, but as there are a number of different factors which determine the outcomes of schedules, it’s not always possible.
