We are proud members of USA Football.
Welcome to the home of the HOMER STALLIONS youth football program. Started in 1985, the Stallions program
has grown by leaps and bounds and is one of the premiere football organizations in the southwest suburbs. The
Stallions offer football programs to 12 levels of age and weight with hundreds of boys in the program.
The STALLIONS is also home to one of the best CHEERLEADING organizations in the state - continually being
recognized with high honors in competitions throughout the state. The STALLIONS have also been involved with
the fastest game on two feet in starting a LACROSSE program in 2009. Lacrosse's popularity has been exploding
in the Midwest over the past several years after being a primarily East Coast sport. Finally, the football
program has also branched out to the ARENA FOOTBALL area and play in the winter.

This meeting will last approximately 45 minutes with coaches taking their teams immediately after, practices will conclude by 7:45pm. There will be NO pads/helmets the first day of practice. Shorts/T-shirts, rubber only molded cleats are necessary for football and shorts/T-shirts and gym shoes for cheer. Your coaches will instruct you on equipment needs on the first night of practice. All teams will stay at the complex on the first night of practice. During your first night your coaches will let you know if you will be practicing at the complex or the Parker Rd. facility.
Bring plenty of water as concessions will not be open during the first week of practice at the complex.
Now that baseball is winding down, the Homer Stallions still have openings in our flag and tackle football programs for 5, 6, and 7 year old players. We have our own in-house established flag football league that has been part of Stallions since 2002. We have multiple teams that practice and play games at the Homer Complex. During the season, the games are non-competitive and no official scores are kept. At the end of the season there is a flag bowl tournament, which includes official scores and a championship game.
For 7 year olds that prefer to play tackle football, we have a Jr. Widget team which is part of the Southwest Midget Football League. This is the same league that all our teams up to 8th graders belong to. The Jr Widgets compete against 7 year old teams from Orland Park, Tinley Park, Mokena, Dolton, Frankfort, Oak Forest, and New Lenox. In-season games are also non-competitive at this age level and official scores are not kept. It is a developmental league only. At the end of the season, our Jr Widget team participates in the New Lenox Jr. Widget Bowl. This tournament keeps official scores and hosts a championship as well as a 3rd place game.
