No matter your age, ability or interest, sports can be a part of your life. That’s why sports play such an important role here at Western DuPage Special Recreation Association (WDSRA).  

The lessons we all learn, from that first pee-wee baseball game all the way through the pickup basketball game played as adults, are lessons that stick with us. We learn how to work as a team to succeed. Through persistence and commitment, we learn that hard work pays off.  We come to understand that winning may not be the only reward.  And of course, teammates can become lifelong friends.

At WDSRA, these are lessons that we repeat in every sport, with every age group and with every disability. We have a robust athletics department serving children, teens and adults by providing recreational and competitive sports year-round including Special Olympics and adaptive sports.

This fall we offered over 20 separate athletic programs including the team sports of basketball, softball, floor hockey, lacrosse and adaptive basketball. During the winter/spring season teams sport will include soccer, softball, basketball, and track & field. In the summer we offer flag football, softball, lacrosse, and volleyball.

In order to meet the need, we are always looking for volunteers who would like to coach. These are great opportunities for an experienced coach. We can assign a team this year.  

Never coached before? Not to worry. If you have a general interest in a sport(s) and a desire to coach, we can give you the training and experience. You can assist this year and move to a head coach position next year. All sports are open.

If you would like to put your coaching skills to good use, give us a call. For more information, contact Justin at (630) 681-0962 or justinb@wdsra.com.
