For Who

Boys and Girls in Kindergarten (K) through 2nd Grades. 

Program (Leagues)

We expect to have the following two leagues for Fall 2019 WWPSA Rec League - This might change depending on registrations in each grade or age group:

  • Boys Kindergarten
  • Boys 1st Grade
  • Boys 2nd grade  
  • Girls Kindergarten 1st Grade (together)
  • Girls 2nd grade  
  • Pre-assigned teams coached by volunteer WWPSA parent coaches.
  • Special team/coach requests MUST BE indicated in the 'special request' field when registering. After that, there is a 6 day window prior to the start of the season to make special requests to the respective league manager. After that, rosters are locked and FINAL.
  • Players, except in the case of injury, will play at least 50% of any game they attend.
  • Games are played every Saturday starting on September 7, 2019 and ending on November 9, 2019. Games are played on Saturdays between 9 am (earliest start time) and 1 pm (latest end time) . Note: Some weeks your games will start at 9 am and other weeks they will start at 11 am. It is highly unlikely that we can place a player on a team that plays all of its games at the same time for the entire season. 
  • All games are played Conover Park in West Windsor Twp, NJ. Teams play other WWPSA teams within leagues based on gender and school grade.
  • Practices for K through 2nd grade teams are on Saturday just before the games at the same location as the games. E.g. if you have a 9am game that means practice starts at 9am with game thereafter; same situatin for 11am game starts 

GPS Optional Group Rec Practices

Youth Recreational Group Training Sessions will be offered starting on Tues, Sept 10, 2019 , ending on Friday, Nov 8, 2019. Sessions will be run by the professional GPS training staff with assistance from Big Brothers/Big Sisters.

The sessions will be co-ed and occur weekly on Tuesday and Friday at Conover Park. Each day will have three sessions based on age group as below: 

Time Tuesday Friday
5:30-6:30pm K-1grade 4-5 grade
6:30-7:30pm 2-3 grade K-1 grade
7:30-8:30pm 4-5 grade 2-3 grade

 

You may attend either the Tuesday or Friday session or both of them. No need to RSVP, just show up. Be sure you only come to the session assigned for your age group; we don't want older kids mixed with younger kids.

Volunteering and Volunteer Bond

WWPSA is a volunteer run organization that relies on volunteers to run its programs and maintain fields. To encourage volunteering, WWPSA charges one $50 volunteer bond per youth player (a maximum of one $50 bond per family) per seasonal year (July through June).

The bond is automatically added to the cost of registration for the first youth player registered by a family for the seasonal year. The bond will be refunded / credited to the family's account after someone in the family fulfills a volunteer shift of at least 3 hours. Many volunteer opportunities are announced throughout the year that will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis. All you need to do is sign-up for an opportunity, show up, sign-in (as proof of volunteering) and do your part. 

Note: You will forfeit your Volunteer Bond and those funds will be returned to the WWPSA General Fund, if:

  • You do not complete your obligation by the end of June
  • Sign up and do not show so please make sure you can commit to the volunteer session before signing up
