OPEN TRANSFER APPLICANTS - once all districts have completed the tryout process, they will notify the WYSA office of the placements for the Open Transfer for the Outdoor 2012 season. At that time the WYSA office will notify the players by EMAIL as to whether their application has been accepted or not. If your application is successful, you will be advised as to the administration process by your district in order to transfer to the requested club. In the meantime the player is responsible to complete their commitment to the team for the Indoor season in regards to practice and games.
This information is for all parents and players for who will be 13 years of age and older in 2012 and are interested in playing in the Premier or Premier-Developmental programs.

With WYSA moving to implement new Long Term Player Development guidelines, we're continuing to monitor similar efforts elsewhere in the world. Here's an interesting piece from the FA in England which is also moving to a system of youth player development that focuses on coaching and skill development. That means getting rid of league tables. Does it mean getting rid of competition? No, not at all.

WYSA continues to work with the MSA to develop LTPD guidelines that best fit Winnipeg's soccer community. Central to LTPD is an enhanced system of coaching the coaches. We're starting with mini-soccer and have begun meeting with community centres around the city's five districts to lay out expectations for enhancing mini-soccer coaching and games.
Stay tuned for more information on LTPD. We'll post it here.

Change 1: Rule 4 Players' Equipment
1. Only indoor soccer shoes or shoes specifically designed for artificial turf shall be allowed. Molded cleats may only be worn on FIFA approved third generation turf.
Exception: For All Leagues. Cleats.
Molded cleats are allowed at Seven-Oaks, Skylight & the WSF Indoor Complex facility; however, independently screw-in studded cleats are not permitted.
The change is that Skylight as now indicated that outdoor style cleats may now be worn at its facility.
Change 2: Rule 12 Fouls and Misconducts
5 h) Should a player from each opposing team receive a five minute (dismissal) time penalty at the same time, the players shall be sent off and the use of substitutes shall not be permitted. If a third player is dismissed his team shall play "short" in accordance with 5b of this Rule; player from that team receives a five (5) minute penalty.
This change is being made in order to bring the rule into accordance with the earlier change of 5 L). Now, in cases where two opposing players are either both cautioned or dismissed, teams will not be permitted to make a substitution to replace the penalized players and will play short a player during the time penalty.
