Annual General Meeting
The annual general meeting of the Charleswood Youth Soccer Association will be held on Thursday, October 20. The meeting will be held at Varsity View Community Centre at 315 Laxdal Rd, starting at 7:30 PM. All are welcome to attend and we are looking for interested persons, particularly with kids involved in CYSA soccer, to step forward and bring new blood to the CYSA board.
2016 Indoor Soccer Registration
Indoor soccer registration will be done in September. The season will start near the end of October and progress until just before spring break in March. The program we participate in is for boys or girls, ages 9 through 18. For ages 5 to 8 (mini-soccer) there is a mini-soccer program run by the St Charles Soccer Association. Please see www.stcharles-soccer.com for more details on that program.
Regular registration is now over and the teams have been formed. However, there are still positions available on most teams, so if you still wish to register, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org providing your child's name, birth date, and your address and we will tell you if space is available. Registration is $325.
For the indoor recreational program there is normally one game per week - for girls, the majority of games are expected to be on Saturdays, and for boys the majority of games have been held on Sundays. Each team is assigned some time at a school gym on a weekday evening for practices. Teams have 7 players per side for ages 9 - 12 and 6 per side for ages 13 - 18. Games are held at different times each week and at different venues. The main venues are at the University of Manitoba, the University of Winnipeg, and Garden City. Each game is played on a 1/4 size field.
For those interested in the more challenging and more serious development and premier programs, please see the St Charles Soccer Association at www.stcharles-soccer.com.
Note the following catchment information.
For ages 9 and up, WYSA regulates where your child can play. The place of residence of your child determines which community club catchment area the child is in, and that is where you register. In the case of CYSA, we handle soccer for the following community clubs:
i.e. south of the river and west of the west border of the Assiniboine Forest (extended down to the City Limits). If you live north of the Assiniboine River in the St Charles district, register with your local community club, even if you have played on a Charleswood team in the past. For Elie area, register with Tracy Carriere in Elie (phone 204-353-2972 or email@example.com).
Kidsport, Jumpstart subsidies
There are several programs which subsidize enrollment in soccer for those with difficulty financing these programs. The primary one of these is the Kidsport program at www.kidsportcanada.ca. If you wish to apply for this, we will have forms available at in-person registration (not on-line). However, please note that if your application is not accepted (there is a means test) you will be responsible for paying the full registration amount. There is also a program called Jumpstart, run by Canadian Tire.
