What is the league philosophy?
The MLGBA provides a fun introduction to organized girls basketball, improves athletic skills and gives older girls a chance to play in league competition. Research shows that playing sports provides girls with physical, mental and emotional benefits that last throughout their lifetimes. To give more girls the chance to play sports and gain those benefits, the MLGBA gives a sound foundation for beginners and very strong challenge to older players. Mostly, though, this league is about having fun.
