Winnipeg Youth Soccer Tournament Draws Record Number of Teams

 

Winnipeg, May 29, 2013 – The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association (WYSA) is proud to announce the 22nd Annual Children’s Hospital Tournament will kick off today with a record number of teams. 

This year, the tournament will feature 199 teams, up seven from last year’s record. Teams are coming in from across the region, including from Kenora, Ontario, Yorkton, Saskatchewan and from Minnedosa, Portage la Prairie, Brandon and Carman, Manitoba.

“The tournament started with only four teams back in 1991. Now it’s one of the largest tournaments in western Canada,” said Carlo Bruneau, executive director of the WYSA. “We want to thank the thousands of volunteers in the soccer community who make this event so successful every year.”

Over the years, the tournament has raised more than $275,000 for the Childrens’ Hospital Foundation. The tournament will feature games at various fields around the city, but home base will be John Blumberg soccer complex in Headingley.

The tournament will run from May 29 to June 2. Despite a challenging weather forecast that is predicting rain, WYSA plans to complete as many games as possible and have finals played as scheduled on Sunday. 

“All players and teams should expect to play at their scheduled times,” said Bruneau. “Marshals will decide whether games are playable or not at the field.”

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

I recently had a piercing, can I still play soccer?

Players are not permitted to wear anything that is dangerous to themselves or other players. This includes any kind of jewelry, regardless of the material, such as: rings, bracelets, earrings, necklaces, or other visible body piercings are strictly forbidden and must be removed. Medical alert bracelets are permissible but must be either made of velcro or a similar soft material or covered with a sweatband.

The practice of taping jewelry is not acceptable (CSA Rule 10.3.5). WYSA did make provision for the removal of jewelry a few years ago by allowing (with permission of the Manitoba Soccer Association) a plastic retainer to be inserted in place of the jewelry for recent piercings. These plastic retainers are not considered jewelry and are not dangerous.
