What is the MAC?


The Mountain Athletic Conference (MAC) is a nonprofit organization that serves a total of 11 different county Parks and Recreations and Youth Sports Associations.  We are located in the north Georgia mountains.  The MAC was officially formed on January 9th 2020. 

In 2017 The Mountain Football League and Mountain Volleyball league were formed. These leagues are now apart of the MAC Conference. 


We offer youth sports that include Basketball, Baseball, Cheer-leading, Football, Softball and Volleyball.  


Rec Departments are playing under the Mountain Athletic Conference. Rec Departments can still set their own in house rules but must play by MAC rules for post season play.


Members of the MAC Conference 

Baseball- Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Hayesville (NC) Lumpkin, Pickens, Towns, Union and White

Basketball (Men’s and Women’s) - Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Pickens, Rabun, Towns, Union and White

Football and Cheer- Chestatee, Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Lumpkin, Pickens, Towns, Union and White

Softball (Girls Only) - Dawson, Fannin, Gilmer, Hayesville (NC) Lumpkin, Pickens, Towns, Union and White

Volleyball (Girls Only) - Dawson, Fannin, Lumpkin, Pickens and White


Baseball, Basketball and Softball will have a Mountain Athletic Conference All Star Tourney before each sports GRPA District All Star Tournament. This will give All Star teams 2 guaranteed Tourneys (3 Tourneys if you choose to play in Dawson’s Battle of the Best for Basketball and Fannin’s Diaz Classic for Baseball and Softball. These are Pre-All-Star Tourneys put on every year by Dawson and Fannin) and as always if our teams win their GRPA District Tourney they will compete at GRPA State.


All of our Recreation Departments are members of GRPA ( Georgia Recreation and Parks Association)  and will compete in GRPA District and State Tourney events for Baseball, Softball and Basketball


Football and Volleyball games are played on Saturdays during those sports seasons. And are played under MAC Rules. Both sports have a playoff system based on Regular Season Standings. 




On our website, we believe in keeping things simple.  You will have access to the minutes of our meetings, By-Laws, rules, game site addresses and more!  Games Schedules will be updated yearly and our current standings will be updated weekly once the season begins.​

We do ask one thing, please tag us in your social media posts to show off your team spirit!  

If you have a question or comment, look to the League Members page to find your representative's contact information.  Additionally, if you are inquiring about joining our league, please be sure to find our information on the Contact Us page.

Thank you for visiting the Mountain Athletic Conference!
