The new Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act (ONCA) comes into effect
sometime in 2016. There are significant changes that need to be made to
WISC Constitution. More specifically as it relates to the definition of
"member" within our Constitution. These changes need to be
made to work effectively within the new Act. These changes directly
affect YOU as a member of WISC.
An information session is being held on the 26th of June, 2015 at 7 P.M. in the Board room at the Soccer Club to speak to this matter and provide the membership with the proposed changes to the Constitution at the 2015 Annual General Meeting in November.

Take advantage of our early registration fees by registering online and paying either online or at the Club office prior to Mar 17, 2015. Please note, following this date, registration fees will increase $25 (including any unpaid registrations).
Although ALL registrations are done ONLINE, payments are made either online (VISA or Master Card) or in-person. In-person payments (cash / cheque / debit / VISA / MasterCard) are accepted at the Club office during business hours. Registrations must be paid to confirm your spot.
Due to the number of registrants in our Club, we cannot accommodate requests to play with a specific player or to be assigned to a specific team. Consideration will be given to volunteer coaches.
There are local community charities to help with soccer registrations fees.
1. Their Opportunity Minor Sports Corporation. This charity provides funding for children from low-income families, less than $45,000 annually, into organized sports and recreation activities. What makes Their Opportunity stand-out, is that funded children enter a “give-back” program, which is where each child that is enrolled ‘pay it forward’ through community service and outreach, within 3 months of being funded.

2. Canadian Tire Jumpstart Charities. This charity gets kids ‘in the game’ by assisting with the costs associated with registration for sports and physical activity programming. For more information: http://jumpstart.canadiantire.ca/en/canadian-tire-jumpstart-charities or contact the Town of Whitby, 905.430.4310, email@example.com, download the Jumpstart application form or complete the online form.
3. Kidsport. KidSport is a national not-for-profit organization that provides financial assistance for registration fees and equipment to kids aged 18 and under. Through a confidential application process we provide grants so they can play a season of sport. Nationally, KidSport is comprised of a network of 11 provincial/territorial KidSport chapters and 178 community KidSport chapters. Since its creation in 1993, over 450,000 kids across the country have been given the chance to play sport through KidSport grants and sport introduction programming.
