Sandy Plains Baseball Association


Sandy Plains is proud to introduce the Sandy Plains Baseball Academy.  The Academy is the culmination of our Board's desire for Sandy Plains to be the best destination for Little League Rec and Travel Ball in the East Cobb area.

The ideals of the Academy will be completed in phases over the next few years.  Our first step in our Phase I process, was to identify Professional Instructors, dedicated to Sandy Plains, who will work with our Rec and Travel Coaches and Players.  We are excited to announce names of our Academy Instructors; Click on the "Instructors" tab on the left and read their bio's.  All of our Instructors have experience playing at the College, Minors or Professional level. All have demonstrated themselves to be highly effective teachers who value sportsmanship and a love of the game, and strive to pass on the same to each of their players.

Our Instructors will be conducting our Coaches Clinics this Spring. Additionally, the Academy Instructors will be visiting every Rec team this season, to meet with the Coaches, run a practice, identify age-appropriate drills and answer any questions from the Coaching Staff.  These initial Team Lessons are being paid for by SPBA. Teams and players may contact the Academy Instructors for additional private lessons at a discounted rate negotiated by SPBA.

Future phases include the addition of batting cages and an indoor facility, Camps and Clinics, and more.

When you see our Academy Instructors at the park, stop and introduce yourself and Welcome them to the Sandy Plains family.
