THE MADDOGS PHILOSOPHY
The philosophy of the Maddogs Organization is player development where each player is introduced to the game of football. There is a focus on skill development and getting knowledge of the game as well as becoming part of a team. Football is a team sport where each position is very valuable. Every player has a job to fulfill in order for the team to be successful. It is important to work together as a team.
We strive to develop good players but more importantly good individuals that demonstrate respectful behavior on and off the field. Each player, parent and coach should demonstrate respectful behavior to all fellow teammates and opponents. If any player demonstrates negative behavior that does not reflect our Maddog philosophy, their commitment to our program will be taken up by the executive.
ABOUT THE MADDOGS
Maddogs Football is a program that promotes youth football in the areas north of Saskatoon. We target youth, Kindergarten to Grade 9 in both Flag and Tackle. This is our 17th year as an organization, and we are looking forward to the 2022 season! We organize a fall tackle program for Peewee (Grades 6 & 7) and Bantam (Grades 8 & 9) as members of the Kinsmen Football League (KFL). Saskatoon Minor Football offers spring flag football and fall flag football for Grades K-6. They also offer the spring six-a-side tackle program for Grades 5 through 8.
The Maddogs program relies on volunteers to provide these youth programs. If you would like to join our executive or help out with the program, please contact us via messenger or at email@example.com
HISTORY OF THE MADDOGS
17 years and still growing!
The Maddogs program was developed after a group of boys and dads got together and joined the Saskatoon Minor Touch Football League in 2005. The boys were excited to join tackle football with the Kinsmen League in the city, so a group of parents got together to try and start a Northern Zone tackle team out in Martensville. They formed an executive and started fundraising for equipment. Their hard work reaped rewards, and the first Peewee Maddogs tackle team was formed in the fall of 2006.
The team had players from Martensville, Osler, Hague, Rosthern, Dalmeny, Warman, and other northern communities. The enthusiastic executive worked harder and raised enough money to get the bantam team going in 2007.
In 2008, the Martensville Maddogs, Martensville High School, and the City of Martensville worked together and developed a home field on which to play. Through fundraising and sponsorship, they were able to purchase a new field and a score clock for the 2008 season. They hosted their first homecoming with Gainer the Gopher and the Saskatchewan Roughriders in September 2008. They continue to host the Riders and Gainer almost every year at their annual homecoming.
The program has grown so much in the past sixteen years, and to date, the Maddogs have over 150 kids playing from Kindergarten to Grade 9.
