U5-U8 Soccer Convenor:  TINA

Our “Learn to Play ” offers our smallest cougars in the 5 & 6 and 7 & 8 leagues a chance to be on a team and to learn about the game of soccer in a safe, sportsmanlike environment. All players are enrolled according to the age they turn during the current calendar year i.e. Player birth date - May 4, 2011 = 5 year old player

League play begins the first Monday in May and ends the last week of June, with a jamboree to follow. Games are usually played twice a week throughout the Season.

WKMCC prides itself in the quality of our volunteer Coaches who strive to bring the elements of "respect, responsibility and trust" back to the game of soccer. For more information about the program or if you are interested in coaching please contact the Soccer Convenor.

News ~ Long-Term Players Development

LTPD:

"Building skills and participation with new player development guidelines The Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association is leading a special task force with the Manitoba Soccer Association to introduce new Long-term Player Development Guidelines. The new program starts with doing a better job of coaching our coaches, but it's end goal is better skill development and enjoyment of the game for children from age 4 up. Our ultimate goal is to improve skills and increase lifelong participation in soccer. We've created a special newsletter with more information on this important initiative. A printed copy of the newsletter was distributed to every youth soccer team (recreational, developmental and premier-developmental) in the city this week."
