St Norbert will be hosting Mini Soccer pending any changes in COVID guidelines.

The Manitoba Soccer Association will be streamlining the registration process for all youth players in the province (U3-U18) beginning in the Outdoor 2021 season. We are providing you with a list of Frequently Asked Questions to help you through the new process, and a step-by-step guide on how to register.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is the new registration process?

All youth players in the province (U3-U18) must now register first with the Manitoba Soccer Association before registering with their chosen Quality Soccer Provider organization. Players must register with the MSA to be considered eligible to play in the season as a youth or mini player.

2. Why the change to a new registration process?

The Manitoba Soccer Association is wanting to streamline the collection of data and fees and use the same process for youth players in the province that all senior players already use. The new registration process will also allow us to better collect data and demographics for the players in our province that are required by Canada Soccer.

3. Do all youth players, at all ages and levels, need to use the new registration process?

Yes, all youth players (recreational, developmental, premier) in Manitoba from U3-U18 will register the same way using the new registration process.
