The Wheaton Park District runs the lacrosse program with a large number of parent volunteers as coaches, proving that first time coaches can learn the game and be successful in coaching lacrosse. As the Wheaton Park District program grows, we need more coaches and support. To assist in the development of the coaches, the Wheaton Park District will be sponsoring lacrosse clinics, seminars and training.
Questions regarding coaching can be directed to Team Illinois Director Joe Opron at Info@eastavelacrosse.com
All Wheaton Park District coaches must be America Sports Education Program (ASEP) certified and pass criminal background checks.
