2ND GRADE BASKETBALL INSTRUCTIONAL LEAGUE
Note: Postponed games from February 24th will be played on March 10th.
The mission of all Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sport 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.
Participants must be a current 2nd grader or a 1st grader who participated in this year's WP&R 1st & 2nd Grade Basketball Clinic.
Registration has ended.
Registration Form and Fees
Volunteer coaches will lead a 10-15 minute practice followed by an informal game that includes two, 10 minute halves (WP&R staff will officiate). Game scores will not be kept and teams will likely be coed. The informal games will be an exciting opportunity for the children to practice the skills they have learned. “Man to Man” defense will be the only defense allowed in this league so children have a chance to work on their individual defensive skills. The five-week league will be held on Sunday afternoons starting February 3rd with game times from 1pm - 5pm. No other practices are held outside of these scheduled times. The league schedule with team rosters will be available on this webpage by January 29th.
All equipment will be provided.
Youth participating in Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports are required to wear two uniform t-shirts, one blue and one red. The playing schedule dictates which color shirt to wear for each practice/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.
The practice/game schedule with team rosters will be available on this webpage by January 29th.
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.
