Knights of Columbus Southborough is holding its annual Free Throw Competition for 9-14 year old boys and girls.
The event is free fun for basketball lovers.
This year, the event is just about the love of the sport. (And maybe some bragging rights.)
Winners of the local competition won’t move on to compete in the traditional regional and state competitions.
Come prepared when you bring the kids that night. 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. (Note: participants in the Southborough chapter’s competition must be Southborough residents.)
The competition takes place on Sunday, May 1st at Trottier Middle School. Registration opens at 2:00 pm with shooting starting at 2:30.
Details of the competition are the same as in past years:
- 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’s rules and regs pages. (You can see the full guide book here.)
