We recently had the privilege to recognize and honor this extremely gifted man. The coach of RWB Adria since 2007, Sinisa Alebic turned the Chicago side into a national powerhouse.
Over the past few years RWB Adria represented Region II at national competitions in all three divisions, Open, Amateur and Over-30.
Sinisa’s in-state record speaks for itself: 2007-2012 National League Champions and 2008-2013 NSL Coach of the Year; 2008, 2009, 2011-2014 Indoor NSL Champions; 2010 and 2013 Illinois State Cup Champions.
His record at nationals is impressive as well. He’s lead Adria to championships in the National Cups Open Division, the 2014 National Amateur Championship and the Croatian National Soccer Tournament. He’s also coached Adria in the Lamar Hunt Open Cup.
Congratulations to Sinisa Alebic for all of your hard earned successes. Your dedication and work ethic are a true inspiration. The Midwest Soccer family is so proud to have you in our community.
For your viewing pleasure, here are a couple very important notes from the Region II Cups Commissioner, Dyann Pugliese:
Deadlines for the Region II US Adult National Cups are (dates below refer to 2015):
- May 3 – Member organizations in Region II must provide the divisions in which teams will be entered. This will allow member organizations to commit to entering a team in a division, but conduct qualifiers until the team entry deadline.
- May 26 – Team entries must be received by 6pm (EDT) by the Cups Commissioner. (Electronic signatures will be accepted on entry forms.)
- May 31 – Team rosters must be received no later than 6pm (EDT) by the Cups Commissioner. (Electronic signatures will be accepted on roster forms.) ROSTERS ARE FROZEN ON THIS DATE.
- June 12-14 – Region II National Cups in Overland Park, Kansas
IMPORTANT: REGION II WILL NOT BE PROVIDING ANY SUBSIDIES FOR THE US SOCCER LAMAR HUNT CUP. No funding is received by the Region from US Adult or US Soccer for the Lamar Hunt Open Cup.
As the ground metaphorically continues to shift underneath the structural framework of the Open Cup events (of which there are two), we can offer some insight into the current developments. If you have specific questions, your best bet is to connect with the Region II Cups Commissioner Dyann Pugliese.
Teams interested in the Open Cups this coming year have two events to consider, the USASA Werner Fricker Open Cup and the US Soccer Lamar Hunt Open Cup, each requiring an entry fee and associated team registration form. (Thankfully both are on the same entry form.)
As for the US Lamar Hunt Open Cup, the need for a regional winner and runner-up to be declared by March 15, 2015 means that we’ll begin our regional qualifiers no later than September 28, 2014. (The USASA Werner Fricker Open Cup regional stage will take place mid-June 2015 so stay tuned for details.)
The upshot of this whole deal? If your team is interested in the US Soccer Lamar Hunt Open Cup then start prepping immediately. More details are coming your way soon…
