The Homer Stallions Youth Football organization is devoted and committed to the development of fundamental youth football skills from the Flag to the Varsity levels of play (ages 5-14). This includes the teaching and development of good sportsmanship, teamwork, discipline, respect, and hard work toward a common team goal via organized practices led by dedicated coaches.
Our coaches are required to be certified by our league and many pursue off season learning by attending via various local coaches clinics. We strive to teach the proper fundamentals of each position including blocking, tackling, passing, receiving and basic offensive and defensive strategies and tactics to prepare the players to be successful in high school. We evaluate and place each player according to their talent, potential, desire and attitude.
Our widget program (7, 8 & 9 yr old) is completely developmental. There is no kicking game and score is not kept and all boys will play as equal as possible. We strive to keep the number of players low enough to allow good learning and participation for all. There are 2 teams at each of the 10-12 year old age level to allow newer players or younger player who have to move up due to weight to play together at the right level for them. Our 13/14 year old teams is split purely by weight into a Varsity and a Junior Varsity, however both are at a high level of play.
Equipment hand out will be the morning of July 27 and practice starts July 29. Tackle players must be present to get their equipment on the 27th.
Practice is held at Kevin Killmer fields at the Homer Township Sports Complex or Parker Road practice fields.
Any Tackle Football Players (This does not include Flag) 11 and under will practice at the Parker Rd site from 5:30 - 7:30. Flag FB, All Cheerleader, and remaining FB teams will practice at the main complex 5:45 - 7:45. Practice is on Monday through Fridays for the first 4 weeks of practice and then moves to Mon, Tue, Thu thereafter.
Games schedules consists of a practice game during the third weekend of practice (Aug 17/18) and then 8 regular season games followed by a single elimination playoff (except Widgets) which can add up to 3 weeks to the schedule if a team progresses to the Championship. Games are typically on Saturday but can also be scheduled on Sundays due to other town’s field limitations. Game times vary throughout the day but younger teams typically play as early as 9am and the Varsity can play as late as 7 or 8pm depending upon the location. Schedules will be posted as soon as they become available.
The registration fee includes all equipment they need to play (see below) including supplemental insurance for any injuries provided by our league. Each player is provided with a jersey with players names will that they can keep after the season.

The Stallions are part of the Southwest Midget league. We are in this league since the teams we play against are from the Southern suburbs. Again this year we will be playing the Tinley Bulldogs, Orland Pioneers, Mokena Burros, Oak Forest Raiders, Dolton Bears, New Lenox Mustangs, Frankfort Wildcats. Other teams are also in the league and can be found through the maps page. We play in the league so all teams are under the same weight restrictions and guidlines for all teams we play. As part of the league, all coaches have background checks run on them for the safety of all the children involved.
You have probably read about the recent Concussion law in Illinois which requires all high schools players to get medical approval before being allowed to return to play. Our league is making efforts to ensure we are aware of recognizing symptoms, understand basic prevention and what to do in case of a concussion. It is also important for Parents to understand the same, so please review the available information as well.
Much more additional information can be found on the CDC's site for youth Sports

Lightning after practice starts...

The website will be updated before 5pm when practice is called off when possible. If we are at the field, we may not be able to update the website.
Weather for practice...
Please keep in mind that football and cheerleading is done at games even if it is raining. The only reason games are called is for lightning or excessively heavy rain. For this reason we enjoy practice in the rain. We will only cancel practice if we lose the fields due to excessive rain and the fields not being able to drain before practice. Before practice is called, we will check the fields and then make the decision.
For all practices and games;
Please keep your dogs on leashes
