Dear Manitoba Soccer Community,
The Manitoba Soccer Association continues to monitor the most recent developments with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the emerging public health crisis. At this time, we are announcing that all in person sanctioned events and activities for the month of May are postponed until further notice. We are currently assessing operations and deciding cancelations on a month-to-month basis as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold.
We are in constant communication with Canada Soccer and Sport Manitoba to discuss all matters related to the impact of the pandemic on our sport. We continue to prepare for an outdoor season, but at this time, are unsure of a return to play date, which will be impacted by recommendations from the public health authorities and government agencies. There will likely be regional return to play dates across the country. In the meantime, we are holding online / virtual coaching and referee courses for which participants may register on the MSA Website – www.manitobasoccer.ca
We understand that some of our member leagues and soccer organizations continue to prepare within their means for a summer outdoor season. We appreciate the efforts being made and the cooperation of all participants. For those who may be concerned about registering for the outdoor season, the Manitoba Soccer Association encourages you to contact the soccer organization that you wish to register with for more information.
Please note that although we encourage everyone to be active and stay healthy, we urge that you follow the health authorities’ directions and guidelines in relation to social distancing and the closing of amenities such as community soccer fields.
Please note that any online or virtual training that may be done are not covered by your MSA insurance. For insurance to be applicable the MSA must sanction the activity and any person, instructor/coach and players, participating in virtual training must also be currently registered for the 2020 outdoor season. Individuals not registered with the MSA will not be eligible for insurance coverage.
If you need any assistance from our staff, please contact them by email.
Stay safe.
Héctor Vergara
Executive Director

Youth Soccer Fees

Youth outdoor soccer fees are set by the Community Centre, but are based on a fixed “base soccer team fee”, set by the St. Charles Soccer Association. The “base soccer team fee” is set each year to cover the costs required to offer youth soccer by the district, Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association, and Manitoba Youth Soccer Association.

The soccer fee the community centre charges includes this “base soccer team fee” plus, a mandatory City Field Maintenance Fee (paid to the City of Winnipeg by the Community Centre on behalf of all teams), and a uniform and equipment fee. The recreational youth soccer program offered by RA Steen Community Centre is not revenue generating.

GCWCC Jumpstart subsidies

RA Steen community centre wants all children who want to play soccer to be able to play. Fee subsidies are available from GCWCC through the Jumpstart program for recreational soccer. If you wish to apply for a fee subsidy, we will have forms available at in-person registration. Eligibility for a subsidy is determined by the Jumpstart program on an income-means tested basis based on a Notice of Assessment from the previous year’s income tax. Unfortunately, if your application for subsidy is not accepted you will be responsible for paying the full registration amount.

Age Categories

From mini soccer right up to eighteen years of age, children and youth are grouped into teams by birth year. Age groups are named “under x” e.g. Under 12 or U12 for short, to indicate that children playing at that age category are age 12 or under. This means that for the current calendar year, all children playing on a U12 team would be no older than 12 by 31 December of that year. In the summer outdoor season (May and June) some children playing on a U12 team may be 11 or 12, depending on where their birthday falls in the year.

Sometimes, based on registration numbers, younger children are “age-advanced” and play on an older age team, e.g. an 11 year old, born in the year prior to the 12 year olds, may due to numbers required to field a team or developmental ability, “play up” with a U12 team. Alternatively, however, older children are not permitted to “play down” an age category.

Starting at the U9 level, birth year restrictions are strictly enforced, because the district recreational and youth city soccer (and developmental and premier programs) are governed by the rules and regulations of the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association and Manitoba Youth Soccer Association.

Catchment Information.

For ages 9 and up, WYSA (Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association) 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.  To determine if you fall within the RA Steen community centre boundaries check the interactive map at the GCWCC web site:
http://www.gcwcc.mb.ca/community.cfm

If you live within these boundaries, you must register for Outdoor  Youth soccer at RA Steen Community Centre. Even if in the past your child has played for a different community centre in the outdoor season, each year you must register at your local catchment community centre.
