City Recreational Soccer - Detailed Description

Beginning at age 13, there is another jump to a higher level.  At this age group, the teams switch to a full-sized field, using a size 5 (full-sized) ball, and 11 players per side.  The maximum roster size is 18 players per side.  Teams play using FIFA rules, modified in places to suit youth soccer (for example, unlimited substitutions are allowed to provide for everyone to have equal time on the field).  Boys and girls play on separate teams, and do not play against each other.

The season runs from early May to July, with play resuming in September with playoff rounds and championships.  Games can be held throughout the week, with WYSA determining the schedule.  Games are played against other teams city-side (including teams from the outskirts of the City), and are played in venues across the whole City.

For coaches of players aged 14 and higher, the Manitoba Soccer Association (MSA) provides a Community Coach Senior Clinic.  Holding a certificate from this clinic level is a requirement of WYSA, and coaches must also have CPIC and CAR clearance as is done for earlier age levels.  As for other levels, attending the online "Respect in Sports" program is a mandatory provincial requirement for coaches.  At this level, every players as well as every team officiatl must have an ID card with their picture in order to be allowed to play.  A same-sex adult must be present on the team bench if the coach is of a different gender than the players.

Practice times and frequency are determined by the coaches in consultation with team players.
