Last week Saskatchewan Soccer provided this update to it's members "This week, on a meeting with Sask Sport and other provincial sport governing bodies, we learnt that we should not expect to see a change to the provincial guidelines for sport until April 19th earliest. The government, however, is optimistic, and if vaccinations continue to progress and case numbers remain in decline, they express confidence in outdoor sports ability to operate closer to normal this summer. Based on communications SSA has had with the Business Response Team (BRT), at this point, when restrictions are loosened, it appears traditional games may be allowed but travel and large gatherings may still be restricted. Overall, this is a very good sign, and we encourage Members to continue to plan for outdoor league play."
This past year has been tough on children and families, Weyburn Soccer would like to express how important it is for our youth to be physically active. The benefits of physical activity are far more important than any restriction that are being put in place. When players step out on the field its guaranteed they will be physically active! Our Technical team will make sure that our programming will remain fun, safe and enjoyable.
Weyburn Soccer Board of Directors have set the following fee's for the 2021 season:
U5-U9 - $90
U11-U19 - $100 (**Weyburn Soccer is looking into possibilities for the U17/19 players to play in a 6v6 to 7v7 coed adult league in Weyburn)
Late Fee - Any registrations that are received after March 31st will pay a registration fee of $150

Calling all Coaches!
Weyburn Soccer can't do what we do with out all of our volunteer coaches! We need you and would like for you to consider coaching or assistant coaching. Our technical team have been working hard to creating ways we can support our coaches better. One way is that we have developed a brand new coaching curriculum with full season lesson plans with coaching points. We have added Ian Fleck as A Grassroots coordinator to help our Technical Director Tyler Hillstead and a support for our coaches during the season. We will be utilizing zoom platform to host coach orientations and review of curriculum's before season starts.
Another new support is we are offering coaches to sign up for a mentorship program. This mentorship will be piloted this year with Tyler leading the project, the aim is to help support coaches both on field and off field. We are also looking to involve our Youth as coaches as well. If your child is in U13 and up and are interested in coaching, Tyler will be running a youth mentorship program with them as well. Youth will be expected to coach only 1 night a week and participate in some zoom development sessions.
To sign up for the Youth Mentorship please fill out this form

We are also looking to hire a coach for our Little Kicks program. Our Little Kicks program is an introductory to soccer program for 2-3 year olds, the focus is on physical literacy and development while in a social setting. We pay our coaches $15-$20 per session. If you want more information or are interested in coaching please contact Tyler Hillstead for more information - firstname.lastname@example.org
