Who are the Wings?
The Wheaton Wings Competitive Travel Soccer Club is the Wheaton community competitive traveling soccer club. The Wheaton Wings were in existence from 1978 until the fall of 2003 and were brought back in the fall of 2008 after the Wheaton Park District received overwhelming interest from residents to start a new competitive soccer club. The Wheaton Wings were brought back in order to play competitive soccer against other “select” traveling clubs in northern Illinois. All Wheaton Wings teams have first priority on soccer field space for practices and games. Wheaton Wings players practice close to home and at times can even ride their bike to practice depending on where they live. If fields close due to poor conditions, indoor space will be offered to Wheaton Wings teams to train when it is available.
Wheaton Wings teams are trained and coached by the Future Pros professional training company. The Wings will field U8 to U18 girl’s teams to compete in the Illinois Women’s Soccer League (IWSL) and U8 to U18 boy’s teams to compete in the Northern Illinois Soccer League (NISL). Team rosters are finalized in June 2012 to compete in both the fall 2012 and spring 2013 seasons.
