The local Knights of Columbus Council will once again sponsor its annual Youth Basketball Free Throw Championship on Saturday, January 13 at 1:30 p.m. at St. Gregory’s Parish School gym.

All boys and girls ages 10-14 are invited to participate in the Local/District level of competition. The Local/District competition is free for all who participate.

The District Competition will be held immediately following the local competition. Winners will move on to the Regional Championships at a time and location to be announced later.

The Knights of Columbus Free Throw Champion is sponsored annually, with winners progressing through to a state competition. International champions are announced by the Knights of Columbus headquarters based on scores from the state-level competitions. All boys and girls 10-14 years old are eligible to participate and will compete in their respective age divisions. Last year more than 120,000 sharpshooters participated in over 3,000 local competitions.

All contestants on the local level are recognized for their participation in the event. Participants are required to furnish proof of age and written parental consent. An entry form is included below.
