Saturday League Guidelines:
The purpose of the Marengo Union Junior Tackle Football Club's Saturday league is to provide an opportunity for less skilled players to develop in a less competitive environment than is afforded by the Sunday league schedule. As such, the Saturday league should be considered a"developmental" league.
Sunday League Guidelines:
The purpose of the Marengo Union Junior Tackle Football Club's Sunday league is to provide an opportunity for more skilled players to develop in a more competitive environment.
