All users of our facilities must review the policies and procedures contained within this information package. It is the league and team representative’s responsibility to distribute this information to all participants and ensure they understand and will adhere to these policies and procedures. If your group requires assistance, please contact the Winnipeg Soccer Federation in advance of your rental date to discuss how we can assist you.

RENTAL REQUIREMENTS

  • MSA SANCTIONED TEAMS/CLUBS:  All sanctioned players, clubs and teams are to follow the Manitoba Soccer Association’s Return to Participate protocols.  Contact the MSA for additional information or click here for updates.

Upon entry, the caregiver must sign in for contact tracing purposes and then proceed to the bleacher area. If the caregiver has another child (or children) who must attend, that child (or children) must remain seated with the caregiver at all times. Physical distancing must be adhered to at all times including in the bleachers.
