Manitoba's youth soccer system is bringing in important changes to the way we coach and train our children. It's called Long Term Player Development and it involves doing a better job of coaching the coaches, giving the players more practice time and de-emphasizing winning games in favour of learning the game.
Here's a good video describing the program from our colleagues at the Ontario Soccer Association: http://youtu.be/dPJltFaZYEc
The Indoor Soccer season runs from October 20 to the week of March 18-21, 2013. The Indoor Soccer program is available city wide for youth ages U9 to U18 for Recreational programs, Developmental U9-U12 programs and Premier and Premier- Developmental U13 and older programs.
Contact your Home District for registration information and dates:

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.

Can you please explain to me why there needs to be a same-gender team official on the bench of my child?
The reason there needs to be a same gender team official on the bench is for safety and security. All teams must have at least one adult of the same gender as the players, as one of the team officials in attendance. This person, must be on the team bench and identified on all game sheets, and must not be a registered player on the team. Teams not having an adult of the same gender, will result in the game being cancelled and points defaulted (grace time will apply as with the players). The same gender team official is not required to have an identification card.
2014/15 INDOOR SEASON
At this time, there are no match cancellations. The match official will determined whether the field or conditions are unplayable at the field.
League wide cancellations will be posted here. In the event of an individual game cancellation, email notification will be sent directly to the teams.
