Practice/Game Locations & Times
We are always in need of volunteer coaches, especially moms and other female role models. Please consider registering as a Head or Assistant coach. No experience necessary – we will match you up with an experienced coach if necessary.
ALL coaches, new and returning, must register, and are required to complete a background check. If you have clearance from another organization, current documents must be uploaded during the registration process.
Coaches can request when registering to be paired together. A maximum of 2 coaches are permitted on the bench during games. Additional coaches/parents can help out at practice but must be formally registered.
MLGBA employs boys and girls in 8th grade or older to keep the scorebook and run the clock for our upper division games. The pay is $7.50 per game. If interested you must register online. There will be a mandatory training for all scorekeepers. Details TBA

We do not accept teammate requests. It is part of our philosophy that girls make new friends and play with different girls each year. We find this especially helpful when transitioning from elementary to middle school. While we do understand there are unique circumstances, and we will do our best to be accommodating, simply requesting to play with friends is not something we will accept.
