Knights of Columbus Free Throw Contest
January 20 @ 9:00 am
Boys and girls ages 9 – 14 are invited to compete in this free throw contest, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus chapters from St. Michael and St. Andrew. Registration is at 9 am, and competition begins at 9:30. There is no cost to compete.
Since 1972, councils have sponsored the Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Championship for boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14. The championship is set up to have the contestants compete within their own gender and age group. All competition starts at the local level. Winners move on to the district, regional, and state or provincial levels. From there, some make it to the international level for championship competition in their group. The goal of the competition is to provide youth with a rewarding activity that promotes sportsmanship and a great family event.
