Social athletic clubs

Deborah_boys_club

Many of the SACs listed here met at the Deborah Boys Club, 3401 W. Ainslie, or at the Max Strauss JCC, 3715 W. Wilson. The clubs had members from Von Steuben, Roosevelt, Amundsen, and Mather. Some clubs date back to early 1940s through 1971, but most are late ’50s through mid 1960s. I include a few Junior Clubs (seventh and eighth graders), and I’ve added club colors where I know them. If you have old or current photos of your club, please consider contributing them to this page. Send me an email  and I’ll get in touch with you.

Sovereigns The Sovereigns was a boys club, started at Peterson School in 1948. Initially there were twelve members, all Jewish. Ten of the members went on to Von Steuben. There were junior clubs and I believe the Sovereigns lasted into the 1960s.
