The St Alphonsus Knights of Columbus will be sponsoring its 5th Annual Free Throw Competition on Sunday, January 5, 2020 in the St Alphonsus Gym (Athenaeum building basement) starting at 1:30 p.m.
The Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship is sponsored annually, with winners progressing through council, district, regional, and state competitions. All girls and boys 9 to 14 years old are eligible to participate and will compete in their respective age divisions (age eligibility is determined by the contestant's age as of January 1, 2020). Please join us in bringing more family and youth friendly events to our Parish and community. (Winners in each age group for both girls and boys will receive an official Knights of Columbus basketball and advance to the district competition)
Space is limited, reserve your spot today!

To break a tie, contestants take a second round of five free throws. No warm-up tosses are permitted for the tie-breaker rounds. Successive rounds of five free throws each continue until a winner emerges.
