Phase 5 Safety Protocols & Guidelines

Wheaton Wolverines Lacrosse

We are excited to announce a new partnership between Team Illinois Lacrosse Club, a Wheaton-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, its member club East Ave Lacrosse, and the Wheaton Wolverines.

Team Illinois is an effort by the top high school and college coaches in the state, including Wheaton North Head Coach Chris Weed, to redefine community and club lacrosse by establishing a communities-first approach that reconnects communities with top coaching talent!

Team Illinois is energized and excited to help Wheaton become the center of lacrosse in the West ‘Burbs!

Assistant Coaches Needed

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.
