For Soccer, West St. Paul belongs to FC Northwest (FCNW) which is our District Club

The FC Northwest District is made up of all the Community Centre's in the Northwest part of the city, including the RM's of East and West St. Paul - list is available HERE

For U9-U18 Soccer unfortunately there is not always enough kids to form teams at each community for each age group
