Spring Competitive Developmental Season - Girls


We offer a "First Stick" program & field four girls teams


With an increase in players starting at a very young age, we have a "First Stick" program for those not yet in 1st Grade and/ or very young and trying it for the first time.  The First Stick program will focus on the basics and learning essential skills through weekly clinics.  There will be no formal games, though we may plan some scrimmages and play dates as their skill development and schedules allow.  The focus will be on players developing a love for the game and to prepare them for the maturity and skills required for competitive play.

2020 First Stick practices will be on Thursdays at 5:30-6:30 @ NE district Park. (5408 Big Woods Road, Chapel Hill, NC 27514).  Michael Garbarino will be coaching.

If you are unsure if your child should register for the First Stick program or Cardinals 8U team, email coach Brent and he can provide further direction.
