CMLA (3rd-8th) Basketball League

The Catholic Metro League of Atlanta is a recreational program primarily for Catholic Churches and Schools in the Atlanta area.  CMLA provides a framework of rules, schedules and officials to coordinate a 3rd - 8th grade program during the Fall/Winter season.  

The objective of the organization shall be the promotion of Catholic education in Atlanta from a moral and Christian viewpoint through participation in a recreational basketball program that focuses on building character and skills by teaching virtues and the fundamentals of the game.

League Motto: “Build Character. Teach Fundamentals. Have Fun.”

The philosophy of the organization is to provide an environment rich in sportsmanship and fair play where kids are taught virtues (especially courage, charity, and humility) and the fundamentals of the game and afforded the opportunity to play basketball in grades 3-8 free from tryouts or cuts. Ensuring that every child within the CMLA has a positive athletic experience is paramount to our success.

We are a participation-based recreational and semi-competitive league parallel to, but mutually exclusive from competitive middle school athletic programs. The CMLA is founded on the beliefs and teachings of the Holy Catholic Church, and the governance of the CMLA, as such, will benefit the interests of every child within its charge.


Fall/Winter - Register August/September & Play November-February (9 Game season w/Tournament for 5th-8th Grade)
