Welcome to the 2018/19 Girls Basketball Website
We're looking forward to another fun and successful season for MAA Girls Basketball! There are four age groups as follows. The league plan is to have a preseason double elimination tournament from December 14 thru December 16, a 9-10 game regular season schedule, and a post-season single elimination tournament for these four age groups:
Minors - ages 9-10 (birth year 2008-09)
Intermediate - ages 11-12 (birth year 2006-07)
Juniors - ages 13-14 (birth year 2004-05)
Seniors - ages 15-18 (birth year 2000-2003)
There is also an Instructional League for girls age 7-8 (birth year 2010-11), runs for eight weeks, and typically is held on Saturday mornings beginning the first weekend in January from 9:00-11:00 at J. B. Watkins (generally will be instructional in nature with skill building drills the first 4-6 weeks, then games the final weeks.) The instructor is awesome!
To figure out the correct division, use your child's age as of December 31, 2018. Please note - the only scenario allowed in the league for "playing up" a division is for the Intermediate age (12 year olds) to play up as a Junior (this move is subject to an assessment in person by the Chesterfield Girls Basketball League president.)
Registration for the 2018-19 season must be initiated online (click here --> Register Online) or click the Register link at the top of the page. Registration will run from now thru Sunday, November 11, 2018. The registration fee is $145 for ages 9-18. Depending on number of coaches and efforts to keep roster sizes no larger than 10 girls in order to maximize playing time, there may be situations where we have to find other associations for those registering later during the open period.
The registration fee for the Instructional League (ages 7-8) is $65 (click here --> Register Online) or click the Register link at the top of the page. Payment can be completed via Paypal prior to logging out of the registration process. Payment may also be made by presenting a check made payable to MAA at your team's first practice, although it is preferable to mail checks to MAA, PO Box 939, Midlothian, VA 23113.
If your household does not have the capability of registering online, please contact John Franklin at 804-307-7944.

Midlothian will also be able to accept players from the following school districts for the 2018-19 season: Beulah, Bensley, Chalkley, Crestwood, Enon, Ettrick, Falling Creek, Providence, Scott, Harrowgate, Ecoff, Curtis, Bellwood, Winterpock and Reams. We can also accept players from other Chesterfield County schools that don't have athletic associations.
Important forms to bring to first practice!
Please download and complete the following forms:
CGBL Participation Permission
Chesterfield County Parks and Recreation Code of Conduct
These will need to be turned in during our open gym dates or at the first practice. You will receive an email updating you as to the time and location of the open gyms if we have any.
Players who have not played in the Chesterfield Girls Basketball League in prior seasons will also need to provide a copy of their birth certificate during practice nights. These copies will be destroyed by the league once they are verified.

Dates for the upcoming season from the league:
- Practices will begin the week of November 12 (we currently have Tuesdays and Fridays at Midlo Middle.) We will generally have younger teams practice during the earliest slots (exacts times TBD based on registrations and coach preferences.)
- Games for all age groups will start the weekend of December 14-16. The format for that first weekend is planned to be a double elimination tourney format to kick off the season (these games won't count in the regular season standings.) League play where records will be kept begins the first weekend in January (games can be on Friday nights, Saturdays and/or Sundays - often multiple games per weekend). Expect 9-10 regular season games. Post-season tournaments for Junior and Senior divisions are scheduled for Feburary 23-24, and post-season tourneys for Minor and Intermediate divisions are scheduled for February 25-March 3 (games can be any day of that week.)
John Franklin is the voting representative for MAA. Keep checking this page for further updates. If you have any questions please feel free to contact John via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or on his cell at 804-307-7944. We will do our best to place the girls on teams that they choose in their age group, but no assurances can be made in this regard. We generally try to keep rosters at a maximum size of 10 girls in order to maximize playing time for all of the girls. If we can't fill a roster with registered girls, we will work with families to find another association for them to play.
