Since the inception of Memphis Athletic Ministries in 1998, thousands of youth from across the Mid-South have played in MAM leagues and tournaments. Unfortunately the coronavirus pandemic has forced MAM to pause team sports for the time being and refocus our attention on physical fitness.

Youth attending MAM participate in fitness challenges, consisting of jumping jacks, push ups, planks, and even a mile run. These challenges repeat every two weeks to determine a student’s progress over time. To keep the spirit of team sports alive, all six MAM locations are “competing” against one another to bring trophies back to their gym.

At this time, a decision has not been made regarding the MAM winter basketball league or the annual MAM Classic tournament. Please contact Kyle Bennison, MAM Sports Program Director, at for any questions.
