Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship
As sports events come indoors due to weather, it is time to hold a council Free Throw Championship. The program is open for Boys and Girls ages 9 - 14.
The Free Throw is a popular Youth Event in Iowa and it has created numerous International Champions over the years.
All you need to hold an event is a local gym with a regulation basketball rim and a regulation 3-second area. Use the free-throw line for kids 12 - 14. Put a tape line 3 feet in front of the free-throw line for ages 9 - 11. Manpower should be at least 4 Knights to pass the basketballs to the participants, run the balls after the throws, and keep score. And of course, as many basketballs as you can get.
It is that simple! Here are the simple steps:
1) Order your materials from the Supreme Council by filling out the Supreme Free Throw Order Form.
2) Check the Regional Competition Schedules by checking this site's Calendar of Events (and search for free-throw). This way you can plan your Council and District Competitions.
3) When you have completed your local competition, make sure to submit the Supreme Free-Throw Participation Form. As with all forms, send a copy to your District Deputy and another to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4) Other forms to be sent depending on the Competition level. Send all these to the Youth Director for the Iowa Knights of Columbus.
