Youth soccer registration for indoor season opens Thursday September 6 at 8 pm

It is hard to believe the summer break is almost over. Although it may sound sad, it means that soccer playoffs for U13-U18 outdoor teams will begin soon! Thanks to our coaches who have already started practicing, and to the RDT program which has helped improve players’ skills. Our soccer teams are ready to kick! Best of luck to all teams, and hopefully Whyte Ridge will be well-represented on championship weekend at John Blumberg again. Thank you to all volunteer U9-U18 coaches for their time and effort to make the Whyte Ridge soccer program such a success.

Indoor soccer registration will commence at 8 pm on Thursday September 4 and will be open until Sunday, September 16. Players are placed on teams on a first come first served basis so be sure to register early. Registrations are not complete until payments have been received.

Once the registration is open, our Soccer Registration page will have a link to Player and Coach registration forms.

Whyte Ridge offers recreational indoor soccer for U9 to U18. Indoor soccer is a great way to stay in shape during our cold months. We are fortunate to have three beautiful indoor facilities in Winnipeg. Please make sure you read 10 reasons why Whyte Ridge Soccer is great.

Thank you to our sponsor Linden Ridge Orthodontics for continuing their support. We were able to purchase practice time at the U of M indoor facility for the teams last season due to their support. Please return the favour by supporting their businesses when you can.

Whyte Ridge summer soccer camp

Another summer, and another great camp at Whyte Ridge CC! For the second year in a row, RDT Soccer league has organized a summer camp in our community. Although it was only one week in August, we had a record-breaking number of 30+ players between the ages of 6 and 14.

For those who don’t know, RDT is a mini soccer league that has been developing the skills of junior soccer athletes for almost 25 years! They have a great team of coaches that make soccer fun, while also challenging players to improve their skills, regardless of their level.

As expected, the camp’s program combined skill development and overall fitness improvement with fun games. The players would start the day with a fitness warm-up which included running, footwork and stretching. They would then move on to some drills that focused on a certain skill, like passing, dribbling and shooting. After that, they would integrate what they learned into a fun game or activity.

President’s Message

I am writing this message after another very successful Summer Carnival and I want to thank our Special Events Director/Secretary for the club, Robyn McCarthy.  Without her effort and the effort of our summer students and all the volunteers, events like these don’t happen.

You have a group of volunteers at your Community Centre that are constantly looking for ways to improve the experiences the Centre can offer your Community.

Kirill, Robyn, John, Pablo, Chris, Erin, and Kerry are all serving on the board to provide programs for you and your children.  I would like to encourage more of our Community to get involved so we can continue these programs, because without your involvement, these programs will not be possible in the future.

Step up and become part of your Community Centre and help build a future for all residents of Whyte Ridge and surrounding areas.

Feel free to email me at president@whyteridge.ca

Thank you,

Curtis Rossow
President

Whyte Ridge Mini Soccer 2018

Weather is always a talking point when we think of Whyte Ridge Mini Soccer. In 2018 we had players complaining that their “fingers were going to fall off” because of the cold and then the very next week we needed extra water breaks due to the heat! We ran from thunder and lightning twice, but we braved the elements when the winds were strong. Our players and coaches proved to be true Manitobans by embracing the sport of soccer no matter the weather!

Yes, we can always talk about the weather. However, we would rather focus on the fun on the field. We had 250 players aged 3 to 8 years old participating in Whyte Ridge Mini Soccer in 2018. We enjoyed having all but the youngest players play their games behind WRES. Some parents moved between the fields at WRES in order to watch children of different ages play. The players enjoyed learning how to handle the ball and play soccer, while the adults enjoyed the entertainment of watching children chase the ball and try to work together! The 3 and 4 year old players met at Don Smith Park as they have for many years now. Watching the little ones run around in their uniforms melts everyone’s heart!
