“In the years following the 1st World War there was a large immigration of people from Europe to the United States.

While they left Europe to escape the hardships and find a better and easier way of life, they did not leave Europe forgetting all the ethnic customs of language, foods, and sports that had been a good part of their lives.

This was true of the founding fathers of the Schwaben Athletic Club. They emigrated from Germany, mostly from the southern part near the Black Forest in the state of Wurttenberg, where the people speak the Schwabisch dialect of German. They brought with them a love of soccer, or fussball as it is referred to in German. They joined a soccer club called the Chicago Sport Club which was founded in 1925 after breaking away from the German Club.”

“The development of a Schwaben A.C. soccer player is a long and gradual process from a simple to a more complex involvement in the game. Our professional and licensed coaches will guide this progression with enthusiasm in an ethical and knowledgeable way. Players should participate at a level that is challenging and demanding for their ability. Every opportunity will be provided for a player to reach his or her potential. Within this progression players will develop responsibility for their own performance, understand the concept of team sport and learn life lessons. Our goal is to keep the passion for soccer a lifelong endeavor that will keep a player healthy for their lifetime.” (Schwaben Athletic Club website)
