On January 8th, the Alameda Elks hosted their annual Hoop Shoot competition at Alameda Point Gymnasium. The Elks Hoop Shoot, funded by the Elks National Foundation, is a free throw contest for boys and girls, ages 8 to 13. Contestant’s age groups are determined by their age as of April 1, 2016. Our partner, the Alameda Parks & Recreation Department, estimated that over 100 children participated across six age divisions. We are dedicated to promoting good sportsmanship and achievement in athletics and we don’t mind all the smiles either. Check out more of the photos below. See you next year!
