So What is the Knuckler Program All About?
While the Frederick County Knucklers, a Middletown Rec Council program, is based out of Middletown, Maryland where our marble shooting rings are located, the program reaches out to boys and girls ages 7 to 14 throughout Frederick County including Frederick City. During the year, we reach out to over 600 kids with clinics held at scouting, educational and other activities to introduce the fun of both playing and collecting marbles. At those clinics, we show kids 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 national competition on the beach in Wildwood, New Jersey. All this, from the free bag of marbles to the local tournaments and the trip to Wildwood are provided at no cost to the children or their families.
