Steve Angelo begins his second year as Wheaton’s director of club sports and intramurals in 2012-13.
"We are thrilled to welcome Steve to the Wheaton athletics family as our new director of club sports, intramurals and recreation and club sports,” said Sutyak. “This position is an important one, and we are very pleased to have hired someone with the amount of experience that Steve possesses. Under his leadership, we will strive to be on the same playing field as some of the top club sports, intramural and recreation programs in the region. We look forward to watching Steve enhance the student experience in these areas."
Angelo spent the previous three years as the director of intramurals and recreation at Endicott College, where he was in charge of constructing and implementing an intramural sports program for a student body of 2,100. In this role, Angelo assisted with the operation and maintenance of all athletic facilities, handled the ordering and maintenance of equipment, and updated both the athletic facilities website and social networking pages.
“I am very excited to join the Wheaton athletic department,” said Angelo. “I have always enjoyed the recreational side of athletics and the opportunity to work at a terrific institution like Wheaton is a true blessing. I look forward to offering its students extensive club sports and recreational sports opportunities throughout the school year and providing the entire campus with a terrific opportunity to enjoy athletics.”
Beginning in 2010, Angelo also assumed the role of fitness center coordinator at Endicott, where he supervised and trained a fitness center staff of 45 employees. He was responsible for purchasing cardiovascular and weight lifting equipment for the fitness center, organizing and scheduling preventive maintenance for the equipment, and assisting with the coordination of the daily operations of all athletic facilities.
“During my time at Endicott, I truly enjoyed working with the students to provide them with programs that fit the interests of the campus, and I look forward to doing the same thing with the students of Wheaton,” added Angelo. “With the terrific athletic facilities and the strong administrative support from the college, I believe that the possibilities are endless for having top-notch recreational and club sports programs at Wheaton.”
Angelo received both his bachelor of science and his master of education in sport management from Endicott in May, 2008, and November, 2010, respectively. In addition to his duties at Endicott, Angelo has been employed as an athletic site director at North Shore Lacrosse since 2009.
