Welcome to the MacKillop Saints.
Located in Johnston at the heart of the fastest growing population centre in the Northern Territory, the Saints have the corporate support, infrastructure and knowledge to offer your family the best sporting experience.


Our club is founded on the principles of Game, Club, Community - which is a public commitment to building not only strong sporting teams, but adding to our vibrant Northern Territory community.

The MacKillop Saints Sporting Association is founded within the stable, culture-rich organisation of MacKillop Catholic College, a school already firmly cemented as a leader within our region. Becoming a Saint means you are joining much more than a sporting team. You are signing up for a journey that is both courageous in nature and demanding of the very best, on and off the field. 

Up the Saints!
David Graham
