Weyburn Soccer ready to have a ball once more

The Weyburn Soccer Association will be returning to the soccer field on a practice training basis, as they have been working hard to get their Return to Soccer Plan approved through their provincial sport organization.

“We have also received a ‘low’ risk score when we put our plan through Canada Soccer’s Risk Assessment tool, so that means we are approved to return to the pitch,” said WSA president Jason Roy.

“Although we will not be returning to a soccer season, we are offering a chance to come out and do some small group training activities. We will be working on individual ball skills, tactical and technical skills, physical literacy with some small sided games among our small groups.”

Age groups will only be open for registration once the association has confirmed a coach and they have received and agreed to WSA’s Return to Soccer Plan.

Currently there are coaches confirmed for U7 boys, U9 girls, U11 girls and U15 / high school boys and girls. If you have a player in that age group you can register today by going to the website at www.weyburnsoccer.com and clicking the “Small Group Training” tab.

The Little Kicks program is starting up again, which they are running in-house and free. Coach Tyler Hillstead will be running a group Tuesday mornings from 10 to 10:30 a.m., and coach Arliss Sidloski will be running a Tuesday night session from 6 to 6:30 p.m. Each group will be limited to 12 participants.

If you want to coach a group that is not mentioned, email Tyler Hillstead immediately at wsagrassroots@sasktel.net and at that time they will open up the age group you are interested in coaching. “Unfortunately, this will only work if we have volunteers step forward. WSA remains grateful to those who volunteer their time and efforts to help us deliver a quality soccer program. Coaches will be able to choose how many nights a week, what days and time to remain totally flexible around your schedule,” said Roy.

At this time Weyburn Soccer will not be offering their “Free Soccer in the Park” program as mentioned earlier. With their plan approved and the rules they need to follow from the Saskatchewan government, the free soccer in the park program is not possible to organize at this time.

“We do have nets set up in Jubilee Park and recommend going out and playing on the fields,” added Roy.
