Program Format
League games will be played on Saturday mornings and Tuesday evenings if needed.  All teams will play a round robin schedule and are guaranteed a minimum of six games.  League play will begin in March.  Please note:  More than likely, teams will be coed (boys & girls together), however separate boys and girls teams may be formed if sufficient registration numbers exist.  The league will have some conflicts with youth volleyball.
  Please note on your registration form if your child is also playing volleyball.

Leagues   Note:  The following is subject to change depending upon registration numbers and volunteer coaches.

1st & 2nd Grade Micro Soccer:  Games are played 4 vs. 4 with 6-8 players on a team.  A size 4 ball is used.  No goalie is used and no game scores or league standings are kept.  The fundamentals of the game such as dribbling, passing, throw-ins, and teamwork will be emphasized.

3rd & 4th Grade Micro Soccer:  Games are played 5 vs. 5 with 7-9 players on a team.  A size 4 ball is used.  No goalie is used and no game scores or league standings are kept.  The level of play is more aggressive while focusing on fundamentals.

5th & 6th Grade Soccer:  Games are played 7 vs. 7 with 8-10 players on a team.  A size 5 ball is used.  A goalie is used.  Game scores are kept but not league standings.  If not enough numbers exist we will use an intramural, Saturday-only format consisting of a short practice with scrimmage.


Equipment
Shin guards are required.  Soft rubber spiked shoes only.  No hard plastic or metal cleats are allowed!  Tennis shoes are acceptable.  Soccer balls will be provided.  Shin guards and shoes are player’s responsibility.

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.  They are available for purchase at the Civic Center.

Rosters
Rosters for all teams are formed via random selection.  Parents may request their child be placed on a team with one other child for legitimate carpooling reasons.  Some carpooling 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.

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
Playing schedules will be available early March 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 at their own risk.
