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.

Happy Friday, Macktown Parents!

Reminder that there is no practice for any teams this evening - we only have practice Monday through Thursdays going forward. 3/4th Graders will proceed the same until the week of September 2nd whereas they will practice (2) a week until the conclusion of their season.

Tomorrow our 5th - 7th grade vs Oregon (Oregon High School, 210 S 10th St, Oregon, IL 61061). There is minimal admissions charge and concessions are available. Normal game times apply & players need to be at the field 1 hour prior for weigh-ins & warm ups. If they are not there at that time, they may not be able to play their game as league rules require weigh-ins before the game.

7th Grade 10:00 AM players arrive by 9:00 AM
6th Grade 11:30 AM players arrive by 10:30 AM
5th Grade 1:00 PM players arrive by 12:00 PM (noon)

Also - our picture day will now be on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8th (instead of Sat, Sept 7th) due to scheduling conflicts with the games going on that day. We will begin at 12:00 PM (noon) and should be done by 2:00 PM. We will confirm the schedule for the day next week.

To those that ordered Parent Jerseys - we are expecting those to be shipped today/tomorrow, so we will distribute early next week.

Everyone have a great day & weekend!
