Sticklettes – Pre K to 2nd Grade

Our Sticklette program is open to children in pre-K through 2nd grade. They practice on the fields at Sunset Park usually twice a week for 60-90 minutes each during the month of April.  Sticklettes will have 10 games scheduled by the county and they may be scheduled during the week or on the weekends.  Games will begin the weekend of April 24th and can be played at home or at any designated Sticklette field within Anne Arundel County.  Games are officiated by the coaches with (2) 20-minute halves. The format is 6v6 on a 50-yard field (midline is the restraining line) with 2 defenders, 2 midfielders and 2 attackers. Two players must stay behind the restraining line at all times.  No goalie or shooting net is used.  All free positions are indirect and there must be at least one pass made after any whistle before a shot may be taken. Checking is not allowed nor is double teaming. No score is kept at this level as the emphasis is on learning the fundamentals of the game and having fun.

Pee Wee – 3rd & 4th Grade

The Pee Wee age group is for girls in 3rd and 4th grades. The format is 8v8 on a 50-yard field with 7 field players plus a goalie. Field player setup is 2 defenders, 3 midfielders and 2 attackers. Draws are used to start the game and to restart after every goal. The rules are similar to Sticklettes. Three-Seconds in the 8m is not called but Shooting Space is definitely enforced to keep the girls safe. Teams generally practice twice per week on the fields at Tick Neck Park or Sunset Park. Games are officiated by two (2) referees that have been trained and certified. No checking or double teaming is allowed.  All teams will be scheduled 10 games that will consist of (2) 20-minute halves each. No score is kept as the emphasis is on learning the fundamentals of the game and not on winning. The county guarantees a minimum of 9 games so weather related cancellations will only be rescheduled if your team falls below the 9 game minimum.

Middies – 5th & 6th Grade 

The Middie age group is for girls in 5th and 6th grades. They play on a full 100-yard field with 11 field players and 1 goalie. Rec & Parks requires that teams are designated as A, B, or C level. Only 7 offensive players are allowed over the restraining line at any time. Games are played with (2) 25-minute halves and an 8-minute halftime. Modified checking (the entire stick of the ball carrier must be below her shoulder) is allowed. The “3-Seconds Closely Guarded” rule is enforced (see below).  Score is kept and reported to the county. Teams will practice twice per week for 1 ½ to 2 hours on the fields at Tick Neck Park or Sunset Park. Eight (8) regulation games will be scheduled with by the county.  Regular Season games will begin March 25th. 

Juniors – 7th & 8th Grade

The Junior level age group is for girls in 7th and 8th grades and is played by high school rules in a more competitive environment.  Full checking is permitted but carefully regulated by the officials for the safety of the players. Teams will practice on fields at Tick Neck Park or Sunset Park two times per week. Score is kept and reported to the county. Games are played almost exclusively on high school turf fields within the county. Eight games will be scheduled and will consist of (2) 25-minute halves with an 5-minute halftime. Playoffs will determine the Junior A, B and C championship teams.  Regular Season games will begin March 25th

We will be holding evaluations during the first 2 weeks of practice on the turf fields, for both the MIDDIES and JUNIORS divisions for the 2023 season.
