Next Monday evening, Knights of Columbus Southborough is holding its annual Free Throw Competition for 9-14 year old boys and girls:

It’s free fun. But for some kids, it’s also a big deal.

Age group winners move on to the district competition with a chance at regional and state competitions February – April. (If the winner cannot attend the next level, the runner-up gets the spot.)

Come prepared when you take the kids that night. Because of the stakes, players are required to show proof of age, show parental consent, and provide an email contact.

You will also need to complete a registration form. (Click here to open the pdf to complete in advance. Or you can fill one out that night.)

The competition takes place at Trottier Middle School from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Here are the details:

  • Players get 3 warm-ups followed by 15 shots
  • 12-14 year-olds shoot from foul line
  • 9-11 year-olds shoot from 12 feet
  • Boy and Girl winner and runner up are selected by best score for each age
  • Tie breaker(s) –  5 shots each until a winner and runner-up are determined

For more details on the rules, see the kofc competition guide.
