Registration Open for 2018!!

Registration is now open for the 2018 Winter Season. Please go to www.mlgba.com and click the ONLINE REGISTRATION link on the left side of page.

 

Please make sure you choose the correct registration form. There are a number listed, including the upcoming Fall Clinics, Scorekeepers, Coaches and Sponsorships.

 

Parents/Players – Please choose the registration form matching the player’s current school grade. The form is titled 2018 Player Registration – (Grade). Do not confuse the Season registration with the Fall Clinics.

 

There will be a Player Evaluation night for ALL players. This is not a try-out, all girls will be placed on a team. It is simply a way for us to evaluate the talent level and ensure all teams are as fairly balanced as possible. Details TBA.

 

PLEASE NOTE: MLGBA does not accept teammate requests. And although we stress this every year, we still get inundated with them. One of the benefits of MLGBA is the fact that the girls will make new friends. While we are sympathetic to legitimate transportation needs, we find that every year parents step up and will help out where needed after the teams are assembled. Thank you for your understanding.

 

Also, registration is open for the Fall Clinics. They are filling fast so register ASAP.

 

Coaches – There are 2 options. One which will take you through the required background check process and another one if you have a recent check completed through another organization. If you choose this option, you must provide proof of a successfully completed check.

 

Please note only 2 coaches, maximum,  are assigned per team to start the season. When registering, please do not request to be paired with more than one other coach.

 

***There will be a mandatory Coaches Meeting on Wednesday January 3rd from 7-8:30 in the Cafeteria at Bala Cynwyd Middle School. Please save the date. At least one representative from each team must attend. ***

 

Scorekeepers – All girls and boys, in 8th grade or older, are welcome to sign up as a Scorekeeper for the season. This is a paid position, with the kids earning $7.50 per game. No experience is necessary and there will be training for all.

 

Sponsors – We rely heavily on the generosity of our local community and encourage all to consider sponsoring a Team, Grade Division or League. This is a great way to give your business a little exposure. Also, many of our sponsorships are in the name of our members favorite Charities and Non-Profit organizations. Here is some more info.

 

Team ($300) – Name of your business or favorite charity on the back of your player’s team jersey. Logo and business description with link to website on mlgba.com

MLGBA Fall Clinics

I hope all of you have had an enjoyable summer. As the calendar turns to September that means one thing……MLGBA starts gearing up for our 2017-2018 season.

 

We will begin with some Fall clinics/open gyms. These sessions will be run by an MLGBA director with the help of local girls HS players. The night will include skills development, small and full squad scrimmages and other activities geared to get the girls a little tune up prior to the winter season.

 

Sessions will be grade specific and space will be limited. We will try and get at least one or two nights scheduled for all grades 1-8 between mid-September through October. This will be based on interest and gym availability. All sessions will cost $25 per player, per night.

 

Some general information:

-Sessions are open to all girls regardless of experience or ability.

 

-Sessions will be capped at 30 participants. So register asap. Registration will not be considered complete until online payment has been received.

 

-All players MUST register and pay online prior to attending at www.mlgba.com.

 

-All players are expected to adhere to the MLGBA Codes of Conduct found on our home page.

 

-All players must wear basketball appropriate clothing and footwear. NO jewelry allowed.
