Fall/ Winter Recreational Basketball League Program Information

New This Fall - Season Long Hoop Opportunities!

Our Directors have been busy and in an effort to offer season-long opportunities for both Recreational  and Competitive hoops, we are adjusting the session grade levels.  Almost ALL kids will be able to play basketball from late October through March!  Of course, participants can register for 1st session, 2nd session or both.  Please review the chart below.  Registration for both sessions open AUGUST 1st! 


WAA's Indoor Winter recreational basketball leagues are for boys and girls in grades K – 12. Online registration begins in August. Enrollment is limited and players will be placed on teams on a first come, first serve basis.  Register early for Special Requests and Early Bird Pricing. Some Divisions may be limited. 2/3 Boys and 5/6 Boys will be capped at 8 teams each in Session 1.  4th and 7th/8th Boys will be capped at 8 teams each in Session 2.  Registration fee includes a team shirt.  

The primary emphasis of the program is to teach basic skills to all players and enhance the skills of the more experienced players. The program encourages player creativity in the development of both individual and team skills. WAA’s goal is to create an atmosphere of fun and good sportsmanship for all players. Emphasis on only winning is not the purpose of our program.  All players participate equally. Coaches clinics are offered for both sessions. Our recreational program for grades 9th – 12th will NOT be open to high school team players. The high school program will be split into two divisions; grades 9–10 and 11–12.

League Play will be split into 2 sessions. At this time, all age groups except 7th/8th grade girls and High School Boys will have the opportunity to play both sessions.  

The games are scheduled to be played on Saturdays at a District 204 or area school.  Practices are held during the week in the evening at local area facilities. Head coaches will schedule practices at the beginning of the season and communicate to team. K-2nd grade play with 8 foot hoop height, 3rd grade play on 9 foot hoop, and 4th grade – HS use 10 foot hoop height.

8-game season with games on Saturdays (Nov 4, 11, 18, Dec 2, 9, 16, Jan 13, 20). Practices will begin the week of October 23.   (No games or practices or games are scheduled when school is not in session.) Enrollment is limited!  2/3 and 5/6 Boys teams will be limited to 8 in each division. Players will be placed on teams on a first come, first serve basis. Registration fee includes a team shirt for each player.  

Due to the popularity of the WAA basketball programs, the program has expanded to include boys and girls divisions and most grade levels in both SESSIONS.  Participants may register for both sessions and should register by grade level or grade above. WAA allows player to play up one grade level, but players may not register to play down a grade level. 

The Kindergarten program consists of one-hour sessions on Saturday for a combined practice/clinic/mini-game format once a week.  1st through 12th grade teams and the second session K/1st grade program will have one practice session each week, times, locations and week night will depend on gym availability and are scheduled by the head coach.  The games are scheduled to be played on Saturday at a District 204 or area school. 

Every effort is made to assign each division to one school for the season. Schedules will be posted online and available via family account at the beginning of the season. Practices are held during the week in the evening at local area facilities.  Coaches are asked to attend a coaches meeting before the season starts and will receive rosters, schedule and uniforms. Coaches will sign up for their practice time after the session coach meeting, by calling the office at their scheduled time and selecting from available times and locations. 

Generally, teams will be made up using the following criteria: school, subdivisions, and local area. We try to accommodate special requests; no guarantees can be made regarding a player’s assignment to a specific area or team.  Requests are limited to 2 per participant (including assistant coach) and 5 per Head Coach. Requirements for participation include:

Each participant must supply their own basketball for all practices. Black shorts are required for all grade levels. Shorts are available at the WAA office for $10/pair.) Parent participation as a hall monitor during practices is mandatory. Parents must supervise children at all times in school facilities.  K-2nd grade play with 8 foot hoop height, 3rd grade play on 9 foot hoop, and 4th grade - HS use 10 foot hoop height.

Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer coaches are needed for every team. Please volunteer when registering your child.

Coaches are asked to attend a coaches meeting before the season starts and will receive rosters, schedule and uniforms. Coaches will sign up for their practice time by calling the office at their scheduled time and selecting from available times and locations.

Competition Weeks and Team Standings

3rd – 12th grade only

The last two weeks of each session are “Competition Weeks”. Competition Weeks are aimed to provide additional excitement and FAIR COMPETITION for the program participants. To the extent possible, the teams with better records will play one another, while teams that don't have as many wins will play one another during those last two weeks (that’s also why the schedule for the last two weeks contains “TBD”). For additional information on “Competition Weeks” please see the Rule Book, Section 2.2.

Team Standings - 3rd through 12th grade only:
After games each week, coaches of the winning team are to notify WAA of their win using the following email account – wheatlandhoops@gmail.com

  • Scores are not to be supplied and have no bearing on the scheduling or seeding for the Competition Weeks scheduling.
  • When reporting wins, include your team number/name.
  • Games without reported wins will not be factored into the standings.
  • WAA staff will keep track of the standings.
  • After completion of the final games before Competition Week, revised schedules will be sent out for the remaining games (those currently labeled as TBD on the schedule).

For more information please contact the WAA office at 630-978-2855.
