Crime Prevention Workshop

Please join us for a very informative CRIME PREVENTION Workshop on February 20th at 7:00 pm, Whyte Ridge Community Centre.

Members of the Winnipeg Police Service will present and answer any questions you may have. Councillor Kevin Klein, Chair of the Winnipeg Police Board will also be in attendance at the February 20th, Whyte Ridge Presentation. South Winnipeg has one of the lowest crime volumes in the City of Winnipeg, and by taking a personal responsibility, we can work to ensure we keep the rate of crime low. I’ve been in discussions with the West District Inspector and through all these discussions, a few common themes emerged:

  1. Report any suspicious activities
  2. Educate yourself on crime prevention measures
  3. Get to know your neighbours
  4. Encourage kids to be active and engage in positive activities

At these workshops we will be discussing items such as Neighbourhood Watch, protecting your vehicles from being stolen, protecting your personal property and other crime preventative measures. I am encouraging you to attend one of these workshops to learn more about how we can all work together to make our homes and communities safer.

Kind Regards,

Councillor Janice Lukes, Waverley West Ward

Soccer registration is only few weeks away

Time to think about spring and outdoor soccer even though we are still in the throes of winter! 

Registration for the 2019 outdoor soccer season will open Monday February 25 at 8 pm.  We co-ordinate our registration process with the other community centres in our district to ensure that everyone has a chance to play recreational youth soccer. Registration information and the link to registration can be found on the website. Watch for the registration signs to go up beside the beautiful new soccer signs around the neighbourhood.

The indoor teams have started playoffs and we wish them all the best of luck as the season comes to a close. Thank you to all coaches and managers for their dedication to Whyte Ridge soccer year round. 

We are grateful to our sponsor Dr Rana Shenkarow at Linden Ridge Orthodontics ( for her continuing support. Our indoor teams have been enjoying monthly practices at the indoor soccer complex with the sponsorship funds.

Celebrating cultural diversity

Hey Whyte Ridge & Linden Ridge,

We’re excited to be organizing an evening to celebrate cultural diversity in our neighbourhood. Our goal is to spark some cultural engagement in our community & experience the various cultures that live alongside each other here in Whyte Ridge and Linden Ridge. We’re aiming for Sunday February 24th, 5-8 p.m. which would consist of a variety of ethnic foods provided by volunteers, some live music from various cultures & just casual socializing. If you’re interested in attending or lending us a hand, please contact me at (204) 801-1112 or – thank you!

Whyte Ridge Mini-Soccer needs you!

Mini soccer

Needed: Convener to help us with the U3/4 (co-ed) league.

Whyte Ridge Mini-Soccer is run completely by volunteers – from the directors, to the coaches and equipment managers. Convening is a great role to have within this dedicated group. It is a way to give back to a soccer program (and to our community) which does so much for our children. Without volunteers, we would not have mini-soccer in Whyte Ridge.

Convening involves attending one meeting in February, answering questions of parents by email, making teams in April, distributing equipment to coaches in April and then sending emails to organize coaches in the spring. We have all of the information you need, and we will support you with this work as much as you like throughout the season. And … conveners can also be coaches! If you don’t want to miss out on coaching, it is possible to do both!

Please email the mini-soccer directors with questions about this position at

Your child’s success starts with you.

Your child’s success starts with you.
Well, this is kind of obvious. Although the focus in this small article is on sports, parents do indeed have a huge impact on their child’s future.

When our children are actively engaged in recreational sports it is already a huge time commitment in addition to the main one, which is being a parent. Now we also become hockey dads and soccer moms, and need to attend all games, driving around in various parts of the city, the province, and the country. Being a sports parent is like having another job, and it should be paid correspondingly, right? I totally agree. But the pay is different.

Imagine that you can not only watch your kids play from spectators’ bleachers, but be part of the team too. You can plan the game’s strategy as well as encourage and prepare your child to play way before the game starts. You will get to know all of their friends and gain their respect. You can have a much stronger bond with your child that will last forever. Do you want that? If you do, then you should volunteer as a coach for your children’s team!
