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.

5, 6, and 7 Year Old Football Players
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.
Cheer Fitting for Those that Missed
Next cheer uniform fitting will be Thursday, June 19th from 5pm-7pm up at the Blue Shed at the complex. This is for uniforms only. Shoes for 2nd grade and above and windsuit if needed should be ordered at Eich's Sports Store in Lemont. Their hours are M,Th,Fr - 10am-5pm and T,W 10am-6pm.

Message from Eric Steinbach-Former Homer Stallion and NFL Standout
"I am proud to be part of the Homer Stallions program because of their long tradition as being one of the top youth football programs in the state of Illinois. My dream as a kid was to play in the NFL and I can honestly say the Stallions played a big role in my development as a player and increased my love for the game.
Being involved in a youth football program is a great way for kids to get exposed to a team sport. The game is changing towards the side of safety and I think it is heading in the right direction. Homer Stallions is definitely a program that leads by example." Eric Steinbach - April 2014
