Out of Region Transfers

January 22, 2018

The Manitoba Soccer Association requires all non-City of Winnipeg Residents to complete their Out of Region Transfer to be eligible to play on any Winnipeg District Club or Community Center team in the WYSA League.

According to the MSA website, the Policy and Procedure are as follows:

Out-of-Region Transfer Policy
• All players that wish to play for a Club in a Region that is not the Region of their home residence must complete the Out-of-Region Transfer Request.
• No player, of any level, is exempt from this process, including:
I. Players that have failed to complete this process in a previous season.

II. Players that have played for a Club in a Region outside of their home residence in a previous season.

III. Players who play in a Community Center that is beyond the Winnipeg boundary but is considered through WYSA policy to be part of a district Club.

IV. Players who have ‘open transferred’ in a previous season.

1. The MSA’s seven geographical areas are; Central, Eastman, Interlake, Norman, Parkland, Westman, and Winnipeg.

2. Out of Region Transfers are only valid for the season they have been granted.

3. Indoor and Outdoor seasons are considered two separate seasons.

4. Only MSA can approve/deny Out-of-Region Transfers.

Out-of-Region Transfer Request Procedure:

In order for a player to play ‘Out of Region’ in any given season they must have completed either;
