Thank you to all of the Volunteers, Participants, and Referees who helped make the Children's Hospital Tournament such a great success!
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.
Organizers plan to play as many games as possible despite poor weather forecast

Starting the 2013 Outdoor Season, Open Transfer guidelines have been established for all competitive players (D-League and Premier/Premier-Developmental) 9 years of age and older. An Open Transfer is a permanent transfer to another District Club (as opposed to an Inter-District Transfer which is only seasonal). This process is not applicable for Recreational players.
Be sure to read the Open Transfer Policy guidelines which provides explanations to eligibility, the application period, placement process and conditions of placement. Additionally please note the reference to Article 9 Tampering, in the WYSA Rules and Regulations. Incidents of Tampering will not be tolerated and will be subject to significant sanction.
The application period for an Open Transfer is January 15 - 30 of each year. All applications for Open Transfer must be submitted to the WYSA Office before January 30 on the appropriate application form found here. It is the responsibility of the applicant to make sure that the application is received by WYSA office by the deadline. Incomplete applications and/or late Applications will not be accepted. There are no limits to the number of players who may apply for Open Transfer. Submission of an application does not signify placement.
Out of Region players will also have the ability to apply for Open Transfers, but must first apply for an Out of Region Transfer into the Winnipeg Region through the Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA). Once the Out of Region Transfer is approved by the MSA, WYSA can process the Open Transfer application. Click here for a copy of the MSA's Out of Region Transfer Request form.
