Walden Minor Soccer Association

Walden Minor Soccer Association is a volunteer organization in the Walden area that organizes recreational soccer for children and youth aged 4-18. In 2009, close to 800 kids played soccer in Lively, Naughton and Whitefish. Many more people, including the WMSA Executive, youth referees, sponsors and more than 100 volunteer coaches help make the season possible.


WMSA is offering registration for the 2010 season at the following dates and locations:



- Saturday March 13/2010 - 10 am to 3 pm - Walden arena (upstairs)

- Saturday March 20/2010 - 10 am to 3 pm - Walden arena (upstairs)

- Saturday March 27/2010 - 10 am to 3 pm - Lively High School rear entrance (WYBL tournament)

- Saturday April 3/2010 - 10 am to 3 pm - Lively Library complex

- Saturday May 1/2010 - 10 am to 3 pm - Lively Library complex - LATE REGISTRATIONS ONLY



Registration forms will be available in March at Battistelli's YIG.



New players to WMSA will be required to provide a copy of a birth certificate or health card for insurance purposes. All returning players are not required to provide proof of date of birth. Registration forms must be signed by the parent or legal guardian of the child.



Registration fees are $75 per child, and include full uniform (jersey, shorts, socks), team and individual photo, trophy and year end banquet. The season consists of approximately 20 games and practices. Late registration fees are regular price plus $10.



Please note that registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. WMSA has run waiting lists in several age divisions over the past few years, so we encourage everyone to register early to guarantee a spot for your child. WMSA must unfortunately limit the size of certain divisions due to the number of fields available in the Walden area.

Soccer is Alive and Well in Walden!
For anyone driving by the Hillcrest Field complex in Lively on a weeknight, you know that soccer is alive and well in Walden.

This summer, close to 800 kids play soccer in Lively, Naughton and Whitefish on 48 teams. Many more people, including the Walden Minor Soccer Association (WMSA) Executive, youth referees, sponsors and more than 100 volunteer coaches help make the season possible. WMSA is the third largest soccer club in the City of Greater Sudbury.

Our season started on May 21 and finishes with our year-end banquet on Saturday August 15. All our kids receive team photos, full uniforms and trophies when they register with WMSA. The banquet is an opportunity to celebrate all our players’ efforts over the season and to thank our dedicated coaches who make soccer fun and possible in Walden. All coaches are parent volunteers who step forward to teach future soccer players the game in a fun, supportive environment.

Our Under 18 division, with two teams, plays with teams in Espanola and Rayside-Balfour. Our other divisions play teams within WMSA – our next smallest divisions, Under 15 and Under 12, have six teams each. Our largest division, Under 6, has 15 teams (240 kids) in 2009.

WMSA encourages fair play in a friendly sporting environment where learning the sport and enjoying the company of friends is paramount. We do not subscribe to creating an intensely competitive environment but instead want to see all participants back the following year, having fun and getting plenty of exercise.

For more information on WMSA, please visit our website at www.waldenminorsoccer.webs.com  or call our WMSA Hotline at 626-9696

A WORD FROM THE WMSA EXECUTIVE

Dear Parents,

This year we have more than 800 young people playing on 50 teams. It takes a tremendous amount of work to run a league of this size. All the work is undertaken by volunteers. We would encourage all families to assist in some way in helping to make the league run successfully. Please take the time to thank your coaches for their time and effort to make the season a great one for your child.

We encourage fair play in a friendly sporting environment where learning the sport and enjoying the company of friends as well as finding new friends is paramount. We do not subscribe to creating an intensely competitive environment but instead want to see all participants back the following year and having fun as well as getting plenty of exercise. We trust that all parents, players and coaches alike will help support our ideals. Most of all, we hope everybody has fun.

Thank you to the more than 100 coaches that have made this season possible, to our many sponsors for your continued support of recreational soccer in Walden, and to the executive members who organized teams, trained referees, check the hotline, recruit sponsors, maintain fields and equipment, and other administrative duties.

Thank you for your support for Walden Minor Soccer. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to leave a message on the Walden Minor Soccer hotline (626-9696) and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

The 2008 WMSA Executive

Not sure about the weather?
Check the WMSA Hotline.

Although we try to ensure that all games are played, cancellations are required at times. Although every effort will be made to give adequate notice, sometimes this isn't possible. Games are generally cancelled due to the following conditions:

 Heavy or torrential rain (more likely in the younger age groups) which has been persistent during the hours preceding the game.

 Thunderstorms which are imminent or threatening.

 Extreme heat or very high humidity levels.

 Too few players in one or both teams.

In the event of air quality advisories, unless noticeably poor at the field locations, the games will be played. We advise parents of players who may have difficulties in these conditions to use their discretion as a parent whether or not to have you child participate on that particular evening.
