Our goal each year is to play for league and tournament championships in each age group in which we field a team, and to provide each player access to play high school and college baseball. Northern Rising values teamwork and selfless dedication as well as commitment to baseball excellence.
Players are required to develop both academically and athletically. We recognize that baseball is a sport and strive to make the experience fun, competitive, and educational.
A NEW TRADITION
In its first year, Northern Rising teams and coaches elevated area youth travel baseball to its highest level of organization. As apex of the Northern Calvert/Southern Anne Arundel area baseball system, Northern Rising complements Little League and Babe Ruth baseball. Northern Rising teams compete in the better area travel leagues, including American Legion, RBI, Chesapeake Baseball Association, AACBL, and AAU, PONY, USSSA, CABA, Nations, Ripken, NVTL tournaments.
The program provides a competitive select-travel baseball experience for players who have significant ability and who want to play fall, spring and summer. The goal is to challenge the players to improve their playing ability in addition to the recreational level so that Northern Rising Baseball can consistently produce top quality players for high school and beyond. Managers are selected based on their experience and training, and teams have set goals of playing 70-80 regular season and tournament games.
Our managers and coaches work in concert to maximize our athletes’ development and opportunities to excel. We have a long term vision for the program that is focused on preparation of our athletes by committed and experienced coaching staffs, identifying and pooling talent and combined activities like practices, scrimmages, and camps and clinics. These cooperative events help us develop a pipeline of potential high school and college athletes and accelerate exposure for those who demonstrate readiness.
Our leadership is experienced and committed to helping our athletes for years to come.
