Anyone from the greater Mount Pleasant area or Daniel Island, age 8-13, is welcome to participate in the free-throw shooting competition. Players will be divided into age groups of 8-9, 10-11, and 12-13.
There is no cost to participate. Winners will be awarded a trophy and entered into the Charleston regional competition for an opportunity to advance to state and national. Winners of the national competition will have their names engraved into a Elks Hoop Shoot plaque at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
