Age Groups

The new definition is: eg, A player born in 2007 or later, under 10 as of Jan. 1, 2017, will be in the U10 category. We aim to have more than 90% of the players playing in their age group.

Team Sizes

For 2017, we will follow the announced Canadian Soccer Association (MSA) guidelines for the “Game Structure”. The idea behind the changes is to:

  • give the players more touches on the ball (playing time).
  • to make the game more easily understood by both players and coaches, particularly at the younger age groups.

Game Length

Depending on the age group between 30 mins and 45 mins.


  • U4 to U8 will play in a local league
  • U10 to U17 will play in the Eastman Youth Soccer League (games start at 7pm, home games in Steinbach, away games in other communities)
  • U10 to U17 developmental Teams will play the Winnipeg League (WYSA)
  • U10/U14: play on Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • U12/U17: play on Mondays and Wednesdays
