Basketball Leagues

There are few sports that are a better test of athleticism than basketball - and who knew it could be so much fun! Our CMSA basketball league offers a good test of skill for those looking for a challenge, and a fun place to make new friends and shoot a few hoops for those who might be new to the sport. 

CMSA Basketball is offered in both an open format and women's format and runs during the winter of each year. Our open league offers multiple levels for every type of skill, and our women's league encourages all skill levels to join and give it a try.

Join CMSA Basketball for a great community of players and a diverse social network that extends beyond the court. Come join us this year!
