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 U9-U15 grade boy’s teams to compete in the True Lacrosse spring league and U9-U15 grade boys travel teams to compete in both the Illinois Youth Lacrosse Association (IYLA) spring travel leagues. Team rosters are finalized in late March 2016 to compete in the Spring 2016 season.
For those interested in trying out for travel teams, a separate tryout will be scheduled.
Players must come fully equipped to evaluations/tryouts.
