3c395762511accd6ce791687cb9a531c_f9.jpgWELCOME!  The Murillo Minor Athletic Association (MMAA) is a rural association that operates a spring youth softball league and helps with the maintenance of the local outdoor ice rink. The MMAA is based in Murillo, which is in the Municipality of Oliver-Paipoonge;  west of Thunder Bay, Ontario. 

The MMAA welcomes those who want to be involved in our recreational league, either as a player or as a coach, umpire, volunteer etc. The only thing you need is the desire to have fun and to ensure that our area youth have the opportunity to play recreational sports in a safe and supportive manner. The goal of our league is not to necessarily encourage winning, but to encourage good sportsmanship and the three F's; Fun, Friendship & Fitness.

Please take a few moments to browse our site and see what we are all about.


Hello Everyone! We are already preparing for the 2020 MMAA youth softball season. Have your kids take part in one of the most popular springtime leagues in the area.
