The Homewood-Flossmoor Kings, a youth development organization, has opened membership. Its focus is football and cheer squads, and in the off-season, the Kings runs a mentorship program. 

“We are a new organization that is vastly growing and currently accepting students from Homewood-Flossmoor and the surrounding areas,” said LaCael Palmer-Pratt, one of the board members. 
“We are a seasonal program that offers resources and activities year-round. Football/cheer during season, mentoring and conditioning, and other supplementary activities that build character throughout the year,” she said.  

“The Homewood-Flossmoor Kings Football and Cheer Foundation aims to be more than a sports program. It operates with a mission of mentorship and service,” said Martez Harding, founder and head coach.

The Kings is a fairly new organization, but its coaching staff and board members have more than 20 years in youth development and coaching experience combined, Palmer-Pratt said.
