Open tryouts are held in May. The tryouts include drills designed to test soccer skills and a scrimmage with the other players. All players who are interested in playing for the Wheaton Wings must attend tryouts. Players should attend both days to allow trainers to get a better idea of each child’s abilities. Tryout participants are notified within 24 hours of the tryout if they are selected for a team. Once they have been notified, they will have 24 hours to accept the position on the team by putting a nonrefundable deposit down.
Trainers from Future Pros administer the tryouts and choose the players. Note: The Wheaton Wings allows up to 20% nonresident participation on a team if needed. All players must pre-register to tryout!
Each Wings team is provided advanced training from a professional licensed staff member of the Future Pros organization, run by program director Ruben Stivan. Trainers run all practices and games. The parent assistant coach assists trainers as needed at training sessions and games.
Supplemental tryouts can be requested at any time during the season. If your son or daughter is interested in a supplemental tryout, please contact Toni Giovenco, Athletic Manager at 630-510-5016 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
A supplemental tryout will only be granted if a Wheaton Wings team has an available roster position at the age group of the requesting player. If a position is available, we will set up a supplemental tryout with a trainer.
