Finksburg Softball

Finksburg will be rebuilding its highly decorated Softball program starting Fall 2023. Our program is open to girls ages 6 through 10 and is dedicated to developing core softball skills while having a lot of fun! Our program is designed for players of all skill levels. We will offer a Spring Season, beginning in early April, with games played through the end of June, and a Fall Season, beginning in September, with games played through October.

For Fall 2023, we plan to offer competitive softball in a local recreational multi-program league. Should that not come to fruition, we will offer a clinic-style program for the Fall, with competitive softball in the spring.


8U - For girls with birthdays between May 1, 2015, and April 30, 2017

10U - For girls with birthdays between May 1, 2013, and April 30, 2015


Spring Program - March to June

Fall Program - August - October


Practices are held at Roaring Run Park (or other fields available to the program, see fields page). Games are held locally in Carroll and Baltimore County.


Players are provided a team hat and shirt. Players are asked to provide pants, socks, cleats, and belt (if desired/needed). Molded cleats only, metal cleats are not permissible.

Note - For Fall 2023 - If we end up running a clinic-style program, to avoid program costs, we will not provide uniforms.

Frequently Asked Questions

My child has never played softball before. Are they able to play at a lower skill level?

Generally yes. However, as we are relaunching this program in 2023, we expect all players to be of a similar skill level, and this should not be necessary.

How can I, as a parent or volunteer, support Finksburg Softball?

We are always looking for volunteers to support coaching, assistant coaching, team management, concession stands, field maintenance, etc. You can either sign up when you sign your child up to play or reach out to the league. All volunteers who interact with children are required to complete a background check with Carroll County Recreation. Please see the background check information in the Coaches Corner.

My child would like to play, but we may not be able to afford to play or may not be able to afford to pay now. Are accommodations available?

Yes. We want all children to be able to play regardless of their financial situation. Please reach out to the League President for accommodations.

My child cannot make every practice or game; what would you recommend?

As this is recreational softball, it is not required or necessary that the player attend every practice or every game. We encourage you to participate to your fullest to support the cohesiveness of the team. If you are concerned and would like to discuss your situation, please contact our Recreational Program Director.

Fall 2022

We are thrilled to bring Softball back to the Finksburg Program; it has been too long!  Thank you to all the volunteers that made this happen.

For Fall 2023, we are working on having competitive softball (i.e., competing in the local recreational multi-program league).  Our backup plan if this doesn't materialize is to run a clinic-style program for Fall 2023 (and will participate in the multi-program league in the Spring). 

Our program for the Fall will consist of a 10U (birthdate between 5/1/2013 to 4/30/2015) and 8U (birthdate between 5/1/2015 to 4/30/2018, contact us if you are younger and are interested in playing) program.  Assuming that the teams play in the multi-program competitive program, the registration fee will be $60.  If we end up running a clinic-style program, there will be no cost to participate.  Accordingly, we will ask that you set payment information up upon registration, but we will not charge you until we know that we will be participating in the multi-program Fall league.  

As always, Finksburg Baseball is committed to bringing baseball to the youth of our community. Should you have any issues with making a payment (whether it be timing or ability), please reach out to Franke Roelke before registering to determine the appropriate accommodations.

With our new league management platform, we are working to transition away from cash/check payments. If you cannot make electronic payments, please contact Kevin Sherfey for instructions before registration.
