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.
