The Ballard Elks #827 competition for the 40th Annual Elks ―Hoop Shoot”®, the national free throw shooting contest for children ages 8 through 13, will be held at the Ballard Boys & Girls Club on January 19th at 3:30pm.
Nearly three million students from across the country entered last year’s competition for boys and girls in age categories 8 to 9; 10 to 11; and 12 to 13.
Each contestant has 25 shots at the hoop. The boy and girl in each age group with the best scores advance through four tiers of competition to qualify for the national finals in Springfield, Mass.
We need volunteers!
Volunteer duties include helping with registration, chasing balls and keeping our contest running smoothly and efficiently. Children are welcome to volunteer as ball chasers!
