The Michigan Athletic Club (MAC) offers adult basketball leagues each fall and winter for Men. The leagues take place on Sundays, with late afternoon to early evening game times. League format includes a minimum of seven league games followed by an all-inclusive post-season tournament. Three certified officials are used each game. Updated league standings, game results, and leading scorers are posted weekly. The league’s leading scorers are posted mid-season as well as at the end of the regular season. Awards are provided to the league champions.
Men’s Winter League: early January to mid-March
Men’s Fall League: mid-September to mid-November
Registration takes place the few weeks prior to the season. Returning teams get registration priority. Registrations are by whole team only. Individual registrants will be placed on a team if possible. If enough individual players sign up to form a team, and team is needed, they will form a “house team.”
Fees are $300 per team plus an additional per player fee of $15 for MAC members and $40 for guests. For additional information on the adult basketball leagues or to be placed on the league database, please contact Athletics Coordinator Mark Sanford at 517.364.8826 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

After finishing the regular-season with an unblemished 7-0 record, Hagan's Heroes earned the 1-seed in The MAC post-season tournament. Hagan's Heroes advanced past CJ Financial in the the first round and would go on to meet Team Orchid in round #2. Behind 16 points each from Jason Murphy and Aaron Nichols, Hagan's Heroes emerged victorious over Team Orchid by a final score of 61-50 earning a spot to the prestigious MAC Basketball League finals. Hagan's would meet league nemesis Sidebar in the finals and this game was not much of a contest as Hagan's emerged as the 2019 Winter League Champions. Keeping up with MAC Basketball League tradition, Hagan's Heroes enjoyed a post-game pizza party at Pizza House after the championship game. The MAC Basketball Leagues will take a break over the summer until the next league begins in mid-September of 2019. Congratulations Hagan's Heroes!
