Each year that Lacrosse has been offered by the Wheaton Park District, the program has grown leaps and bounds. After receiving overwhelming interest from residents the Wheaton Park District decided to create its own independent lacrosse program. With this move we are taking the next step in bringing you an educational and competitive lacrosse program to Wheaton.
The Wheaton Lacrosse program will field boy’s teams to compete in the Illinois Boys Lacrosse Association (IBLA) spring travel leagues. Travel team rosters are finalized in late January 2017 to compete in the Spring 2017 season. In house teams will be finalized by March 1, 2017. In house practices will begin in March as weather permits.
Evaluations are scheduled for January 2017.
Players must come fully equipped to evaluations/tryouts.
