General's Highway Athletic Association of Annapolis, Rolling Knolls and Crownsville exists to instill leadership and promote the concept of teamwork among our children while ensuring all players gain confidence, build skills, play equally and have fun.
The General's Highway Athletic Association, Inc. (also sometimes referred to as GHAA) came into existence in 1997. Prior to this time there were a number of athletic organizations named after the Rolling Knolls community, including baseball, girls lacrosse and soccer. These organizations banded together under the General's Highway banner in order to better serve the emerging communities along and around MD-178, which is better known as General's Highway. The earliest of the Rolling Knolls organizations is girls lacrosse, founded in 1985 with the first season in 1986, and therefore General's Highway roots go back to this time.
General's Highway is a non-profit organization registered with the State of Maryland and the US Government. While continuing to solely make sure the lacrosse fields at Rolling Knolls elementary are playable, the organization also works with the Anne Arundel County Recreation & Parks department to maintain General's Highway Corridor Park on Crownsville Road. The lacrosse, soccer and baseball organizations make use of the fields at this location.
The first President of General's Highway was Dale Dandy who also happened to be the Commissioner for Rolling Knolls Baseball at the time. He was President for at most two years. Since then we have had several presidents serving the General Highway community. Currently Mike Hicks is serving as the Generals Highway Athletic Association President.
Under his leadership, we are offering Basketball, Baseball, Football, Soccer, Girls Lacrosse and Environmental Projects for Generals Highway.
