Frederick County Knucklers Youth Marbles
About Frederick County Knucklers Youth Marbles
A Marble Program for Kids
While the Frederick County Knucklers, a Middletown Rec Council program, is based out of Middletown where our marble shooting rings are located, we reach out to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 throughout Frederick County and in Frederick City. Throughout the year we reach out to over 600 kids through scouting, educational and other activities to introduce them to the fun of both playing and collecting marbles. We show them how to play the game of ringer on portable marble rings and then send them home with a free bag of marbles along with an invitation to pursue the sport of competitive marbles as a member of the Frederick County Knucklers.
As a member of the Knucklers the kids learn the art of shooting a marble and then proving their skill in several tournaments throughout the spring and early summer months with the top players competing in a four day long national competition at the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey. This year we sent seven youngsters to that national event which celebrated its 91st anniversary.
All this, from the free bag of marbles, the local tournaments, to the trips to Wildwood are provided at no cost to the children or their families. A policy of which we are very proud.
