FALL VOLLEYBALL - 2022
Final Week's Schedule Now Posted!
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.
Now through July 5th. Any registrations received after July 5th will incur a $10 late fee and will only be accepted 'as needed'.
Registration Form and Fees
2nd Grade, 3rd & 4th Grade, and 5th & 6th Grade leagues will be offered. All league matches will be played on Saturdays (primarily AM) and Monday evenings if needed (only Wahoo, RC, or Mead teams would be scheduled for Monday nights). League play will begin mid/late August. All teams will play a round robin schedule and are guaranteed a minimum of six matches. All matches are played 6 vs. 6. All children receive equal playing time. Doubleheaders will likely be scheduled using Wahoo, Mead, or other area school gyms to reduce travel time and help avoid schedule conflicts. If you are a coach and a specific date needs to be avoided please note this on your child's registration form.
Wahoo team rosters are formed via school affiliation (if possible) with the intent of forming even teams. 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. Community teams and organizations need to form even teams as well. All rosters are subject to league director approval.
Out-of-Town Teams and/or Club Organizations - Roster Policy
All kids in each community and school are able to play on your team. If a child is interested and not asked, WP&R reserves the right to place them on your roster if not enough children remain to create another team from the community/school. Communities and organizations with multiple teams must divide those team rosters as evenly as possible via grade and skill (unless otherwise approved).
Out-of-Town Teams and/or Club Organizations - Group Discount
Any organization that agrees to the roster policy (above) and follows the uniform policy (below) while also sponsoring three or more teams is eligible to receive a $10 discount per player. All player registrations on your teams must be paid with one check! Organizations should collect all registration forms and mail/drop off forms in an envelope with full payment to: Wahoo Parks and Recreation, Attn: Bob Schmidt, 310 N. Linden, Wahoo, NE 68066.
All players must wear tennis shoes with non-marking soles. Volleyballs are provided. Kneepads are recommended.
Youth participating in Wahoo Parks and Recreation youth sports are required to wear WP&R approved uniform t-shirts (primarily the blue & red WP&R shirts). Community teams and organizations will need to wear a shirt approved via Bob Schmidt.
Wahoo Parks and Recreation utilizes volunteer coaches for all youth sport programs. All coaches selected by WP&R for teams formed by WP&R are subject to a mandatory background check. Out-of-town teams or teams from club organizations will be responsible for performing background checks for their respective coaches.
An announcement regarding schedules will be posted by August 12th on this web page.
Refunds will only be issued if a child is unable to play due to injury. Any requests for refunds should be directed to Bob Schmidt.
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.
