The Elks Hoop Shoot free-throw contest has served to highlight the Elks commitment to America’s youth.
From the millions of youngsters who participate and advance through the local, district, state and regional competition, six national champions are named – one boy and one girl in each of the three categories: ages 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13.
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 goal with this program is to provide a character-building, competitive program for all girls and boys regardless of their previous athletic competition or abilities.
