Basketball Free Throw Challenge for Youth Ages 9–14

The Knights of Columbus Coucil #7992 invites all boys and girls ages 9–14 to participate in this year’s contest on Saturday, January 20, 2024, from 6:00–9:00 pm in the Father Martin Center.  The Free Throw Challenge is held every January with the first round held locally at the Nativity gym.  This is a community event so all are welcome regardless of parish affiliation. Bring friends and compete with each other!

This is a FREE event!  Each contestant is scored on fifteen (15) free throws taken from an age-designated foul line.  Boy and girl winners for each age group are determined by highest score.  In case of a tie, five additional tie-breaker free throws are used to determine the winners.  Nativity girl and boy age-group winners are eligible to compete at District and then State challenges. The District Challenge is in February at Holy Spirit in Annandale.

When: January 20 | 6:00–9:00 pm *
Where: Fr. Martin Center (gym)
* Participants can arrive any time between 6:00-9:00 pm and do not have to remain for the entire event. Participation time for each contestant is typically 15-20 mins.

No early registration or notification is required. Contestants sign in upon arrival.
