The Schwaben Athletic Club has been in existence in the Chicagoland area since 1926. During these years, Schwaben has produced many fine youth and adult teams at all competitive levels. We maintain four of our own soccer fields in Buffalo Grove with concessions and practice facilities for our teams and competition.
