This organization currently has 39 member programs (fielding 117 teams with about 700 coaches and 3,500 players overall) from Cherokee, Cobb, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Rome and Paulding Counties. The GMSAA is a highly competitive league (e.g. there are no restrictions on weight and no requirements to play all players) that features some of the best middle school athletes in the country. The GMSAA began play in 1992 with separate 7th and 8th Grade teams representing their respective zoned High Schools as "Junior" programs. The association expanded in 2005 to include 6th Grade teams (with 5th Graders eligible for play).
