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.

Leagues offered

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 $350 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

After finishing the regular-season in a 3-way tie for second place with a 5 – 2 record,   Foul or a Bucket  found themselves a 4-seed in the MAC post-season tournament.  Foul or a Bucket crushed Sitting Bull in the first round by a final of 94 – 67 behind Melvin White’s 43 points.  This first-round victory set up a round #2 showdown against regular-season undefeated champs Hagan’s Heroes.  Foul or a Bucket stunned the League Champs by a final of 68 – 60 with Derick Nelson and Melvin White knocking down 20 points each.  The 2nd round victory vaulted Foul and a Bucket into the Nov. 17th championship game against league nemesis Pizza House.  Behind Melvin White’s game-high 29 points, Foul or a Bucket would prevail yet again by downing Pizza House by a final of 73 – 61 to take home the hardware and the title of 2019 MAC Fall League Champions!  Keeping up with MAC Basketball League tradition, the team enjoyed a post-game pizza party at the Pizza House after the championship game.  The MAC Basketball Leagues will take a short break over holidays until the Winter League begins in mid-January of 2020.  Congratulations Foul or a Bucket!
