The Sandy Spring Athletic Association (Falcons) host baseball teams for players from T-Ball up to 14U. Starting in 2012 with one team, the Sandy Spring Falcons program has grown to 10 teams, both travel and developmental. It is our primary goal to produce the best possible learning environment where players can have fun, grow and spend time learning the game of baseball from outstanding coaches.
We have a new Sandy Spring Sports Association Baseball Website:

We are very appreciative of those who are interested in Sandy Spring Athletic Association. We are extremely proud of all our Falcon players and families. Fly high Falcons!
The Falcons travel baseball teams typically compete in the local Montgomery County Baseball Association (MCBA) league -OR- Mid-Atlantic Baseball Association (MABA). Additionally, the teams will select local and travel tournaments for additional challenge and team fun. The travel baseball program runs both fall and spring seasons. The developmental portion of this program for the older players is intended to assist with high school readiness. The players will receive professional assistance from hitting, pitching and overall skills from local high school coaches. The Falcons program is dedicated to helping each baseball player reach their maximum potential with outstanding leadership, both volunteer and professional, and organized league programs. Travel baseball programs are for players age 8-18.
The Falcons understand that it takes great leadership to form cohesive and fun programs. It is our goal to identify and select coaches based on their ability to connect with the players, their knowledge of baseball, and their willingness to commit to our high standards. All coaches will be background checked, trained for concussion identification and management, trained for youth social awareness (Darkness to Light, or Vertus) and baseball coaching skills using the Ripken method. Once a potential coach receives their certificate of completion from each of these programs they will meet with our baseball commissioner and determine if coaching a team is a good fit. Some teams decide that their best option is to hire a professional coach. This is something the Falcons will support and has supported as long as the team families are in agreement.
