Program Philosophy

The mission of all Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports programs is to promote a fun, yet challenging environment in which participants are introduced to and taught the basics of a given sport.  The program is strictly recreational in nature and emphasizes equal opportunity for involvement and participation.

Registration Period (for 3rd through 6th grade)
Now through October 3rd.  All registrations received after October 3rd will incur a $10 late fee.  Late registrations will be accepted on an "as needed" basis (not all late registrations may be accepted).  Late registrations will need approval from Bob Schmidt.


OUT-OF-TOWN TEAMS OR PLAYERS:  Contact Bob Schmidt at 443-4174 or the local youth sport representative from your community if you are unsure whether your school/town team will be participating.  WP&R will have final approval on all team rosters.

Program Format
Games are played on Saturday’s beginning at 8am.  If necessary, Wahoo area teams may be scheduled to play on weeknights.  Teams will play a six-game, round robin schedule.  Games are officiated with scores kept.  Teams will begin practicing in mid-October.  League play will begin either October 28th or November 4th with a completion date prior to Christmas.  Games will NOT be played on Thanksgiving weekend.  Games will be held primarily in Wahoo.  Mead, Weston, or other neighboring community gyms may also be used to aid in allowing all games to be completed by 1pm (whenever possible).  **NOTE:  The 3rd & 4th grade girl’s league plays on lower rims.  All other leagues play on 10’ rims.  Teams will not be allowed to practice on Wednesdays or Sundays.  1st & 2nd Grade basketball information will be released in January on our website.

Equipment:  All players must wear tennis shoes with non-marking soles.  Basketballs will be provided.

Uniforms:  Youth participating in Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports need to have two uniform t-shirts, one red and one blue.  The playing schedule dictates which color shirt to wear for each game.  These shirts are used for all youth sport programs and are available in a variety of youth and adult sizes and can be purchased at the Civic Center for $6 each. Some communities have approval to wear a shirt that features the WP&R logo.  Please visit with your sport community leaders and/or Bob Schmidt if you have questions about this.

Rosters:  Team rosters are formed via coach’s draft and/or superintendent formation.  Wahoo teams will be formed via school affiliation.  All rosters, including out of town rosters, must be approved by Bob Schmidt.  Parents may request their son/daughter be placed on a team with one other child for carpooling purposes.  The request must be made by both parties (not all requests may be honored).  This information needs to be indicated on the registration form.  Once teams are formed, coaches are responsible for contacting players on their rosters to set up practices and distribute information.

Coaches:  Wahoo Parks and Recreation utilizes volunteer coaches for all youth sport programs.  All head coaches are required to attend the coaches meeting.  Instruction on general coaching philosophy and principles as well as sport-specific information will be discussed.

Schedules:  League schedules will be formed after meetings are held with coaches and will be available on our website or at the Civic Center.  Coaches will be contacted via email in early October (after the deadline) about the coaches meeting.

Miscellaneous:  Participants and their parents/guardians should be aware that there is a risk of injury during participation in Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports due to the inherent nature of the activities.  Individuals participate in Parks and Recreation youth sports at their own risk.

Questions:  Contact Bob Schmidt at the Civic Center at 443-4174 during normal business hours.  To register online or find out more about Wahoo Parks and Recreation programs and events, visit our web site at www.wahoociviccenter.com.
