The Wheaton Wings Soccer Club is the Wheaton community’s competitive travel soccer league. Wheaton Wings play 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 available. Trained and coached by the Future Pros professional training company, the league will field U9-U15 girl’s teams in the Illinois Women’s Soccer League (IWSL) and U8-U14 boy’s teams in the Northern Illinois Soccer League (NISL).
