The Brookings chapter of the Elks Lodge will be hosting their annual Hoop Shoot basketball free throw competition for boys and girls ages 8-13 on Jan. 12 at 10 a.m.

Participants will compete to see who can make the most out of 25 free throws.

Each age group will have their own bracket, with the top three competitors from each age group winning prizes. The champions of each age group will also have the opportunity to advance to the district championships, which will be held Jan. 26 in Ashland. From there, they can earn the opportunity to advance even higher, up to the national level.

Registration opens at 9:30 a.m. the day of competition at the Brookings High School gym.
