Program Format

1st & 2nd Grade:  Games are played 7 vs. 7 with a coach or a designated adult as the quarterback.  No game scores or league standings are kept.  All children will have the opportunity to play all the positions on both offense and defense.

3rd & 4th Grade:  Games are played 7 vs. 7.  No game scores or league standings are kept.  All children will have the opportunity to play all positions on both offense and defense.

NFL Flag (5th & 6th Grade):  Games are played 7 vs. 7.  Game scores are kept but no league standings.  Coaches will begin to develop players for specific positions while still giving them the opportunity to play all positions.

Equipment
Tennis shoes or football shoes with molded rubber cleats can be worn by the players.  No metal or hard plastic cleats!  Footballs, flag belts, and kicking tees will be provided.  One mouth guard for each player will also be provided.

Uniforms

NFL Flag (5th & 6th Grade) Participants:  Each participant will receive an authentic NFL Flag Football reversible jersey!  Whether your child plays for the Cowboys, Steelers, Chiefs, Patriots, etc, they get to keep the jersey of the NFL team they are playing for!  The NFL jersey is included in the registration fee.

1st & 2nd and 3rd & 4th Grade Participants:  Youth participating in Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports are required to have and wear WP&R approved attire (primarily blue/red Wahoo Parks and Rec shirts).   Participating organizations/communities will need to have an approved shirt via league director.

Rosters
Wahoo team rosters are formed via school when necessary and possible with the intent of breaking up teams as evenly as possible.  Parents may request their child be placed on a team with one other child for legitimate carpooling purposes.  Some car pooling requests may not occur.  This information needs to be indicated on the registration form (no exceptions).  Once teams are formed, coaches are responsible for contacting players on their rosters to set up practices and distribute information.  Participating organizations/communities will also need to split teams as evenly as possible.  All rosters are subject to league director approval.

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

Schedules
An announcement regarding schedules and/or the release of schedules will be available August 16th on this web page.

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 programs at their own risk.

Refunds
Refunds will only be allowed if a child is unable to play due to injury.  All refunds must be approved by Bob Schmidt.
