***PLEASE NOTE OUR LIGHTWEIGHT (ages 9-10, grades 4 and 5) and JV (ages 11-12, grades 6 and 7) TEAMS ARE FULL.  PLEASE CONTINUE WITH REGISTRATION AT THOSE LEVELS IF YOU WISH TO BE ADDED TO THE RESPECTIVE WAITLIST.***

 

Due to the high demand for the Pioneers football program in 2022 (three of our four teams reached the River Valley Youth Footbal League maximum of 44 players), registration for the 2023 season will open in phases. Returning players and their siblings will have the first chance to register. Orland Park residents that are new to the organization will then have a chance to register, followed by an open registration for all players. Registration will remain open until rosters and waitlists are full.

THIS DOES NOT APPLY TO CHEERLEADING ONLY TO FOOTBALL!

 

January 1st:  Any family that had a participant in the Pioneer organization in 2022 (tackle, flag or cheer)  can register at this time. This includes all siblings.

 

February 1st: Registration opens for all Orland Park residents (or unincorporated Orland Park residents) who will have a first year player or a child that didn’t play for the Pioneers in 2022. 

 

March 1st: Open registration.  Anyone can register at this time. 
 

Registration will remain open until rosters and waitlists are full.

A Best Friend Partnership On and Off the Field
By Pat Z. McGavin

Only connect, the writer E.M. Forster famously asserted. Those connections take different forms and shapes, at once random and peculiar and yet somehow always of a piece. About three hundred miles separate the hometowns of John Stefanos and Mark Mikesell. Their lives and careers became entwined through a curious blend of fate, circumstance and chance.
