CMRC Softball offers teams in both the Fall and Spring Seasons. The levels of instruction are 8U, 10U, 12U, and 15U. There is no travel team but post-season play in the Spring is offered by the FCGSL (Frederick County Girls Softball League). All practices and home games are played at the softball field at Carroll Manor Elementary School in Adamstown. The only exception is the 15U team, who will play at Tuscarora High School when needed. The league strives to help players reach their full potential in skills, mindset, sportsmanship, and teamwork.

Frederick County Girls Softball League (FCGSL) uses a December 31, 2019 cut-off date.
Example - if you turn 13 on December 31, 2019 you would need to register for 15U. If you turn 13 on January 1, 2020, you can still register for 12U.
8 & Under - Age cut-off for 8 years old and under as of 12/31/19. Birthdates: 1/1/2011 or later. This is COACH PITCH instructional softball that focuses on fun and sportsmanship.

10 & Under - Age cut-off for 10 years old and under as of 12/31/19. Birthdates: 1/1/2009 or later. This is the first level for GIRLS TO PITCH, but is combined with coach pitch.
