The American Basketball Association (ABA) today announced that the Southland Saints located in Southern Suburbs of Chicago known as Southland, have been added to the growing list of teams that will begin play in November. “This is quite a special team,” stated ABA CEO Joe Newman.  “Les and Monique Rodgers, the owners, through their organization, Empowered Move, Inc. have invested in families, the youth and their community for more than 25 years with a goal of partnering with local businesses in their efforts to connect families and the businesses in the community.”

As Motivational Speakers, Corporate Trainers, Ministry Leaders and Youth Mentors, Les and Monique inspire and empower individuals of all ages both personally and professionally to achieve the greatness for which they were created.  “We value family and take pride in our closely knit blended family,” added the Rodgers. “Our mission it to provide a professional and winning basketball team rooted in community that gives back to the community through programs that equip our youth, enrich family dynamics and uplift the community. We believe that ABA basketball is an event that can bring families closer and promote a love for something in common with their home team, the Southland Saints.  For more information, email
