Lying in the shadow of Mt Macedon, 60km north-west of Melbourne, lies Tony Clarke Reserve the home of the Macedon Cats Junior Football Club.

There are not many more picturesque locations to host a game of football than under the watchful eye of the mountain.

While we may not be the biggest club in junior football in terms of player numbers in terms of sheer spirit we match it with the very best.

Welcome to the Macedon Cats, step inside and experience what we’re all about.

  • Making a difference

    For young people to learn life’s most valuable lessons it is important that they be part of a nurturing and positive environment where winning isn’t measured merely on a win/loss ratio but where being the best you can is preached. Read More

  • Coaching Philosophy

    Like most junior football clubs we love nothing more than having a win however this is not our primary objective. Our guiding principle is to teach and educate young players in the virtues of fair play and sportsmanship, lessons that hopefully they can apply in life as they get older. If we can convey these principles then on field success will be a pleasant by-product of the process. Read More

  • Auskick

    At Macedon Cats we encourage all junior players right up to and including under 12s to come along and join in with the Auskick program. To this end in conjunction with the Macedon Cats Junior Footy Club we have introduced the Macedon Auskick Junior Footy Advantage where the junior football club will subsidise Auskick fees by $20 for any player who signs up for both.
