about our club
The Assyrian Atheltic Club of Chicago (AAC) is a non-for-profit organization founded in 1970.
AAC has been essential to Chicago’s Assyrian community since its inception, bringing together Assyrians for generations. The AAC organizes and conducts various athletic leagues designed to challenge males and females of all ages.
The club originally began as a single team: the Winged Bull Soccer Team. With time, the club would expand to include a youth soccer program for hundreds of Assyrian children; it was the first of its kind in the Chicagoland area. Adult sports leagues were introduced with the Assyrian Men’s Basketball League in 1996, which has since spread to cities across the nation. Most recently, the club launched the Assyrian Co-Ed Volleyball League in 2012.
The AAC is equally committed to both athletics and the Assyrian community. The club seeks to provide a supportive environment where all are welcomed, good sportsmanship is promoted, and ultimately, a community is empowered. AAC has become a tradition in the city of Chicago.
The AAC strives to provide the opportunity for our athletes to develop and strengthen their skills through healthy competition.2
