Semi-Competitive High School Basketball

(Grades 9 – 12)

Catholic Metro League of Atlanta (CMLA), the managing body for 3 – 8 also has a program for high school parishioners.  The high school program is both competitive and fun-loving.  Participants create their own teams for league play throughout the season.  Teams may be self coached, peer coached, or professionally coached (Mom or Dad).  All teams are required to have a team manager.  The team manager will act as the communications point for the team.  A team manager must be an adult and is required to be present to represent the team at games, home and away, and at meetings.  The team manager is not required to coach, only manage the team.
