Since 1972, local Knights of Columbus councils have sponsored the Free Throw Championship all across the country for boys and girls from the ages of 9 to 14 to provide an athletic outlet and encourage the values of sportsmanship and healthy competition. Kids compete within their own gender and age and progress from the local level to district, regional and state competitions. Last year more than 120,000 sharpshooters participated in over 3,600 local competitions.
