About this event
The Clifton Park Elks Hoop Shoot, the national free throw shooting contest for children ages 8 through 13, will be held at the Southern Saratoga YMCA, 1 Wall Street, Clifton Park, NY on Saturday, November 12 from 1 PM until 3 PM. There is NO CHARGE to compete.
Nearly three million students from across the country entered last year’s competition for boys and girls in age categories 8 to 9; 10 to 11; and 12 to 13 (as of April 1, 2023). Each contestant has 25 shots at the hoop. The boy and girl in each age group with the best scores advance through four tiers of competition to qualify for the national finals in Chicago, IL.
Local Clifton Park winners will compete against other contestants in the district event in January 2023. Names of the national winners will be inscribed on the Elks Hoop Shoot plaque on permanent display in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts.
In April 2018, Aidan Karo from Clifton Park, NY participated in the national championships held in Chicago, IL. He also was a national finalist in 2019. Three area participants, including Joseph Girard III of Glens Falls, have won national titles.
