The Weyburn Soccer Association had a successful turnout over the 2021-22 winter for their indoor programs.

This was the first winter they were able to hold actual soccer events, rather than just 'futsal'. This is thanks to the Mainil Field at the Weyburn Credit Union Spark Centre. 

"It's absolutely amazing," shared WSA president Jason Roy. "I thought it would take a little longer to establish. Even at our soccer club standpoint, I thought it would take about two or three years to be able to, but some of our programs filled immediately. We almost had to turn some people away, but we tried to accommodate everybody and we this was an amazing winter."

As a result of the swanky new indoor field, Weyburn has quickly become a favourite place for soccer enthusiasts from all around the province. Roy said they've hosted soccer clubs for games from Regina, Moose Jaw, Swift Current, and Yorkton.  

"Anybody who comes to Weyburn, everyone left in the same manner, as, you know, 'jaw-dropping', 'beautiful', 'one of the best fields that they played on', type of attitude," he shared.

This weekend at the Spark Centre there will be 180 families coming with their U18 athletes as the Saskatchewan Soccer Association hosts the tryouts for the 2022 Team Sask for the Canada Summer Games. Check back tomorrow for more details.
