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.

Families of Macktown,

The purpose of this letter is to update you on our efforts in determining if there will be a season of football play this fall. Throughout the off-season the board members have been working in navigating the uncertainty of the current environment with a goal or having a season of play in compliance with all requisite local, state and national rules and regulations.

We are in communication on a regular basis with our two leagues, Milton Youth Football and the Big 14. The president of Milton Youth Football and the commissioner for the Big 14 are both optimistic that we will have a season of football this year. Additionally, we are also in communication with other leagues throughout Illinois and Wisconsin in monitoring their progress towards a season of football. This information is helpful to us in forming ideas and developing questions to our league representatives during their board meetings. In light of the current uncertainty, the Macktown board and our head coaches are committed in preparing for the season. We will continue to keep our coaching staff and families abreast of the status of our upcoming season. We will continue to take registrations for 3rd/4th, 5th and 6th grades. Grade 7 and Grade 8 are full. At this time, we suggest that parents do not pay any outstanding registration fees, but rather make those payments on the date of the equipment hand out.
As you know many of our regularly scheduled events have been postponed, delayed or cancelled. Once we are able to determine with a reasonable level of certainty that there will be a season of play we will provide you with an updated calendar of events to ensure that all registrants are prepared for the start of the season.

We thank you all for remaining patient with us during this time of uncertainty and fully understand the unusual circumstances that you have all be under during the last four months. We can assure you that we are continually working with our league leaders and among ourselves in exploring all avenues to allow for a season of play.

Please find below dates for events that are tentatively scheduled or expected. As soon as we are able to finalize these dates we will send a follow-up correspondence.
If, you have any questions please feel free to reach out and ask your questions.
