Orland Park Pioneer Football & Cheerleading Program

The Orland Park Pioneers have been a part of the community for more than 40 years.

The program has practiced and played its games at the village’s John Humphrey Sports Complex  since the facility was unveiled in the early 1980s.

The village has long planned capital improvements to the field at the Humphrey Complex and is able to do so this year.

Several alternative practice sites were discussed for the Pioneers --- the best two were Centennial Park or Schussler Park.

In order to practice under the lights at Centennial Park, Pioneer teams and squads would be spread throughout the park. The upcoming improvements to Centennial Park would also force the Pioneer Program to be relocated again. Therefore, Schussler Park was chosen as the best location, which has slightly more square footage and significantly more lighted square footage of practice space than the Humphrey Complex.

To keep disruptions to a minimum and to ensure the safety of the Pioneer participants, the village is making its 21-acre Schussler Park available for the Pioneer Program.

The village will construct a tower with a cover for recording and calling the games. Additional portable restrooms will be located at Schussler. The program can locate its storage space at Schussler and a 10 x 10 storage shed will be available for the program’s use.

The Parks Department will relocate the goal posts, scoreboard and bleachers from Humphrey to Schussler.

A permanent home for the Pioneers is part of the master plan for Centennial Park. An area designated for football will be part of the first phase of this re-development at Centennial.

We apologize for the inconveniences with the temporary location  but ask that all Pioneer families know that the village will do everything to ensure a smooth transition to the new facility at Schussler Park.
