ABOUT MACKTOWN WARRIORS FOOTBALL

OUR PHILOSOPHY

The Macktown Warriors youth football organization was established on the principles of safety, sportsmanship, and character building.

It is our goal to develop kids into hardworking, respectful young athletes, and ultimately prepare them for competition at the high school level. We pride ourselves on the concepts of “Team” and “Family.” Our players first become teammates who are unified by the game, and then by their commitment to one another.

Macktown Warriors understand what it takes to become champions. They learn to be their best in the face of adversity and be humble in victory. Instruction at the lower levels centers on fundamentals of football and gradually focuses more on competitive skills at the upper levels. Playing time is a focus at every level.

Providing a safe environment is our highest priority. Organization coordinators oversee the coaching staff to ensure that our kids are not only taught to play the game in the safest manner possible, but that everyone is treated fairly and with respect. Go Warriors!

Macktown Warriors are a registered 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization. Check out the video below to see more about our organization.

Re: Pandemic – Macktown Warriors Football 2020 Season

Families of Macktown,

We wanted to take a moment to give you some insight as to what we know at this point pertaining to the upcoming season. On March 18, 2020, Macktown took part in a community phone call among local youth organizations. This discussion regarded Spring/Summer and Fall Sports. Every organization is mandated by either themselves or a league, which then looks to the State for guidance and direction. During this call there was discussion on the potential for having a season this year and the timing of events needed to prepare for and carry out the season. We will make a vigilant effort to have a season this year in light of the pending crisis. However, our decision to have a season of play this year will be guided by officials from the State, IHSA, WIAA and our league. Obviously, the health and safety of our participants, parents and fans is our primary concern and any decision that we make will strongly consider these issues. In the upcoming months we will continue to monitor the current crisis in conjunction with officials from the State, IHSA, WIAA and our league. As this situation unfolds and we have more information relating to our ability to hold pre-season events and/or move forward with a season of play we will update you accordingly.
As for now, Macktown encourages families to continue to ‘Sign-Up’ but please select the option to pay by mail (Pay Later). In doing so, this will lessen the amount of refunds (if any) we will need to process. In the event that we are unable to commence the season this year we will issue refunds or provide an option for a credit against next year’s season’s fees if you have already paid your registration fees.
This is a time for reflection, sport is not the priority but what is, is family, friends, the young and old, the weak and strong. We all have a role in this trying time, there will be plenty of time for sports when this is all over. Please check Facebook and your email from time to time for updates going forward.

Sincerely,
Macktown Board
