3rd-8th Basketball Program

The Our Lady of the Assumption ("OLA") Basketball Program is run by volunteers of the OLA Athletic Ministry. 

CMLA practices start early October and the season runs from November through the end of January.  Games are on the weekends and a team practice is held on a weeknight (determined by the volunteer coaches and based on availability).  

You can find detailed information at the Catholic Metro League of Atlanta page.

If you have any questions, please send a message to Lee Posey at [email protected].

Wait List Process

Wait lists form when we reach the maximum number of players for a team and they are released when we reach the minimum for forming a 2nd team.  It is highly likely that you will be placed on a team. Below shows the process.

Team 1 - max is 10 players
Waitlist forms at 10 for the next 6 players
Team 2 - min 16 players and maximum at 20 players
Waitlist forms at 20 for the next 4 players
Team 3 - minimum 24 players and maximum at 30 players

Our goal is to accommodate everyone and the waitlist process helps create a sense of urgency as we need to have teams formed before the registration deadline.
