    Free Throw Contest

    The St Anne Knights of Columbus will be sponsoring its 2nd Annual Free Throw Competition on Thursday, January 24, 2019 in the Our Lady of Mercy Family Center. Registration begins at 6:45 PM and the contest begins promptly at 7:00 PM.

    The Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship is sponsored annually, with winners progressing through local, district and state competitions. Last year more than 120,000 sharpshooters participated in over 3,600 local Illinois competitions.

    All boys and girls 9 to 14 years old are eligible to participate and will compete in their respective age divisions for the Statewide Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship. Please join us in bringing more family and youth friendly events to our Parish and community.

    BONUS: Winners in each age group for both girls and boys will receive an official Knights of Columbus Certificate and Trophy, and advance to the district competition immediately following the district competition.

    Each contestant receives three warm-up tosses followed by 15 consecutive Free Throw attempts from the appropriate age-designated foul line. 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.


    • All children must be pre-registered in order to compete.
    • Please bring proof of age, i.e. Birth Certificate
    • ONLY GYM SHOES are allowed in the gym, no marking shoes are permitted.
    • Trained K of C  adults will be on staff to run the event.
