The Elks Hoop Shoot


The Basketball Hall of Fame is proud of its partnership with the Elks National Hoop Shoot, a free throw contest for youth ages 8 to 13. The program is free to all participants and provides youth an opportunity to compete, connect and succeed through hard work and healthy competition. Winners advance through local, district, state and regional contests to reach the National Finals. In the end, the names of six national champions are permanently inscribed in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

For more information on the Elks National Hoop Shoot, contact your nearest Elks Lodge or visit www.elks.org/hoopshoot

Museum visitors can participate in weekly Hoop Shoot contests hosted on the Jerry Colangelo Court of Dreams of the Basketball Hall of Fame every Sunday at 2pm. Each week, contestants compete to win an Elks basketball and to become that week's champ.
