Schwaben would liket to give a warm welcome to Razvan Brumar. Razvan was born and raised in Romania where he played from 1992-1996 during college for Gaz Metan Medias, Minaur Zlatna and Soimii Sibiu. Razan played professionally in Romania at FC INTER SIBIU as well as 2nd and 3rd Divisions.
His coaching career in the US began at River Forest Rapids for the U8-U14 boys and girls teams starting in 2006 and he was most recently coaching U13 boys teams at Chicago Edge SC.
In addition Razvan was a referee for the National Youth Level, League 1 reserves and League 3 in Romania. He holds a NSCAA Premier Diploma, NSCAA DOC Diploma, NSCAA Advanced National, NSCAA National Diploma, USSF NATIONAL YOUTH License and USSF NATIONAL D License.
This August Schwaben will be taking twenty-five U11, U12, U13 girls and boys to Hamburg Germany in our International Exchange Program. This will be the second trip Schwaben is taking to Chicago's sister city Hamburg.
The players will spend ten days to include practicing with the Hamburger Fussball Verband, participating in a tournament and attending a special City Hall reception. In addition, the players will spend a day with a fellow German player and their family.
Exchange programs are important because they expose players to a new perspective on the game of soccer. Traveling enables players to experience and appreciate another culture while building character and providing a chance to represent Schwaben in a high level international competition. Most importantly the players will create friendships with international soccer players.
Congrats to the First Team! Soccer Wire.com reports:
"When Schwaben AC of Buffalo Grove, Ill. last competed in the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, the Summer Olympic Games were hosted in Tokyo, Lyndon Baines Johnson was president and a British band called The Beatles were making waves on this side of the Atlantic with their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show.
That was 1964, and after a 50-year absence from the competition, Schwaben AC are back for the 2014 edition. They qualified through the U.S. Adult Soccer Association (USASA) Region II Open Cup competition, winning games against FC Indiana and in-state rivals A.A.C Eagles to progress."
