Sadly, our Hoop Shoot was snowed-out last year, so let’s make a big showing this year! Bring your kids, grandchildren & great grandchildren to our annual basketball Hoop Shoot! It’s free to the public. This sporting event helps keep our youth focused and away from undesirable activities. Participants get a T-shirt and the chance to compete at state and national levels.

Each contestant, in order of their draw, may have up to five warm-up shots (if desired) and then, will shoot 10 shots for score, and then another 15 shots in the next round.


Friday, November 1, 7-9PM
Registration: 7-7:30PM
(snow date, Nov. 15)


Boys and Girls under 14

  • Must be 13 years old or younger as of April 1, 2020
  • Must bring a copy of their birth certificate
