Colorado Elks Association



Hoop Shoot

Hoop Shoot Committee Purpose:  To encourage lodges to make available the Hoop Shoot program to every eligible child in the state and to assist with the state and regional Hoop Shoot contests.

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, will participate this year.  The Elks Hoop Shoot highlights the Elks commitment to America's youth.  From the millions of youngsters who participate and advance through local, district, state and regional competition, six national champions are named — one boy and one girl in each of 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.  Parents accompany contestants throughout the competition.  The parents of finalists at the state, regional and national levels attend the competitions as guests of the Elks
