October 31, 2016 - CMLA COMMISSIONER’S MESSAGE

On behalf of the CMLA Board, welcome to the 2016-2017 Catholic Metro League of Atlanta basketball season!

As we begin another year, let us be mindful of our league mission – Build Character. Teach Fundamentals. Have Fun – and focus all of our efforts on the young people we serve in our ministries. Through the collective efforts of our fantastic coaches, our parents and our CMLA parish administrators, we can have a tremendous positive impact on the young athletes in our care.

 St. Jude, St. Brigid, Christ The King, Notre Dame Academy and Immaculate Heart of Mary are now partners with our Play Like A Champion initiative. We have trained over 100 of our CMLA coaches and expect to train 100 more by the spring. Our goal is to have 100% commitment by the 2017-2018 season.

The 2016-2017 CMLA Basketball Season is dedicated to the memory of an Atlanta icon and CMLA legend – Jim Pepper. Jim passed away peacefully on September 23, 2016. Jim loved life, basketball and, most significantly, Jim loved kids. For over 30 years “Pep” ran the gym floors of the CMLA and shared his love of the game of basketball and the CMLA. He served as our league Commissioner, game scheduler, Chief Marketing Officer, cheerleader and assignor of basketball officials. Jim made fast friends and was beloved by all. He is now running the courts in heaven (HOPEFULLY, HIS CELL PHONE ACCOUNTS ARE DISABLED!) Jim will not be with us this year, but he will never be forgotten. Please remember the Pepper Family in your prayers.

 

We are all excited to begin a new year of basketball. Work hard, play your best and most importantly – ENJOY THE EXPERIENCE AND HAVE FUN!

 

Ken Turner CMLA Commissioner

We do not have any time in our schedule to make-up these games, so all cancelled games will be eliminated from our league schedule and league standings/results will be determined by games played.

October 30, 2014 - Commissioner Message

 

On behalf of the CMLA Board, welcome to the 2014-2015 Catholic Metro League of Atlanta basketball season.

Our league motto is: Build Character. Teach Fundamentals. Have Fun.

These are powerful words.  As we begin a new season, be mindful of our mission.  I encourage all of our leaders, coaches, parents and athletes to incorporate these principles into practices and games.  Our league is based on Catholic values and we all need to be committed to acting on these values, on the court as players and coaches and in the stands as parents and spectators.

Going forward, the CMLA will begin the process of implementing Play Like A Champion Today.  This program was developed by The University of Notre Dame's Institute for Educational Initiatives to provide youth sports organizations with guidance and specific "tools for coaches to use with their athletes, focusing on honing skills, while emphasizing the true character building elements of sports: teamwork, fairness, friendship and fun!"  This is a perfect fit for the CMLA and will help our league grow in a manner that is consistent with our purpose.  Please take the time to go to http://www.playlikeachampion.nd.edu/ and learn more about the program.

We are all excited to begin a new year of basketball.  Work hard, play your best and most importantly, enjoy the experience.

Thank you for your support of the CMLA.

Ken Turner

CMLA Commissioner
