OUR MISSION
The Palos Stars' mission is to not only teach the fundamentals of football and cheerleading, which will enable players to achieve their highest level of performance, but to also teach children useful lifelong values such as teamwork, good sportsmanship, respect for others, commitment, strong work ethic, leadership and the value of education.

The Palos Stars Association is a non-profit organization that was founded in 1972.  The Stars are members of the Southwest Midget Football League. Our program provides our community's boys and girls, age 6 to 14, an opportunity to play organized junior football and cheerleading. Players will learn the fundamentals of football as well as physical conditioning. Our coaches are committed to teaching our boys and girls the value of teamwork, commitment and dedication, respect and good sportsmanship. Our organization is very proud to have had a number of players that have continued on to play Pro, Semi-Pro and Division I College football.

The Stars' Home field and practice site is located at the George Cuevas Park at 114th Place and Southwest Highway in Palos Hills.  (Located directly across from the Metra Train Station in Palos Heights.)

Palos Stars Boundaries - Our program serves the following communities:  Palos Heights, Palos Hills, Palos Park, Orland Park, Chicago Ridge, Oak Lawn, Bridgeview, Alsip, Worth, Hickory Hills, Justice, Summit, Willow Springs and Chicago.  Any questions on boundaries please call.

PROGRAM INFORMATION
Our football and cheerleading season runs from the beginning of August through the middle of November each year.  Varsity and possibly Junior Varsity players have the opportunity to compete in a national tournament over the Thanksgiving holiday, which extends their season a few weeks.

Practice for both football players and cheerleaders begins Monday, July 29, 2019. The practice schedule is from July 29, 2019 through about August 23, 2019 is Monday through Friday from 6 - 8 PM. Starting around August 26, 2019 through the end of the season, the practice schedule is Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 6 - 8 PM. (This change in practice days also depends on when school begins.)  Varsity will continue to practice through Thanksgiving if they participate in a tournament.

Fees are the same for both football players and cheerleaders.  The registration fee is $185.00 per child through 2/3/2019.  Starting 2/4/19 the registration fee will be $200.00 per child.  There is also a $125.00 raffle ticket book which each family is required to sell.  Familes can pay in full when registering or just pay a $100.00 non-refundable deposit per child.  All balances are due at time of equipment pickup in late July.  We also request $100 for the season to fulfill 6 hours (per family) work committment (this will be deposited).  If all work committment obligations are fulfilled by the end of the season, the money will be returned at equipment/cheer uniform turn-in.


We offer a free conditioning camp (optional) during the month of July on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6 - 8 PM. The first day of training camp is July 2, 2019.  This provides players an opportunity to learn fundamentals, refine skills and begin conditioning for the 2019 football season. Also, you have a chance to meet the coaches and other players.

Games are usually played on Saturday. However, there can be Sunday games especially when we play away games as other teams don't always have lights on their field.


The Palos Stars provide the following equipment to each football player:

Game jersey (which player will keep at end of season),
game pants
game socks
helmet
shoulder padsd
knee pads
practice pants

Players only need to provide their own practice jersey, football cleats (cleats must be MOLDED only - no metal screw-in spikes will be allowed at all), girdle (Can purchase at Equipment Pick-Up or through Don's World of Sports) and any additional mouth guards.


The Palos Stars will provide Cheerleaders with their uniforms:                      cheer vest
