The Elks Hoop Shoot™ Free Throw Contest is the largest and most visible of the many youth activities sponsored by Elks Lodges. More than three million boys and girls, ages 8 – 13 participate. The winners each receive a trophy and their names are inscribed on a plaque at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
The Elks desire to provide an interesting, character-building, competitive program for all girls and boys in the contest regardless of their previous athletic competition or abilities.
We have a Regional Winner! Kyler Card came in first place in the Boys 8-9 division at the Southeast Regional Hoop Shoot Contest Finals that took place March 15th, in Valdosta, GA. Kyler was sponsored by the Holley Navarre Lodge #2787.
This year's winners receiving Dale Young Memorial Trophies are Jeremy Morales, sponsored by the Deep Creek Lodge #2763 and Carli Linehan, sponsored by the Venice-Nokomis Lodge #1854. Both are in the 12-13 year old division.
Congratulations to all!
