Roland Park Baseball Leagues, one of the oldest youth baseball organizations in the United States, in operation since 1952, began as an independent league thanks in part to a former Baltimore Oriole, Merwin W. “Jake” Jacobsen. Now it comprises five leagues of ages 5-15 and 11  travel teams. More than 800 children participate.

Serving the Central Maryland region, with rosters from Howard, Anne Arundel, Carroll County, Baltimore and Prince George’s counties, Strive Volleyball Club follows a long tradition of the sport under the name Firebird Volleyball Club since 2010. New management and a name change in 2017 ushered in a team-first mentality.

Families seeking faith-based athletics can enroll their child in indoor soccer or fall and spring outdoor soccer as early as age 3 at the Christian Athletic Association in Catonsville. Founded in 1985, the program focuses on building character and deepening relationships through competition and training.
