All boys and girls ages 9 to 14 are invited to participate in the local level of competition for the 2016 Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship.
The local competition will be held Sunday January 31 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Peter Twomey Youth Center, located behind the Groton-Dunstable Regional Middle School North. All contestants on the local level are recognized for their participation in the event.
The event is free, and entry forms will be available at the door.
The Knights of Columbus Free Throw Championship is sponsored annually with winners progressing through local, district, and state competition.
International champions are announced by the K of C international headquarters based on scores from the state-level competitions.
This is the 13th straight year that the Our Lady of Grace Knights have hosted this event.
In all but one of these years, the local council has had at least one winner make it all the way to the state finals, with two of these participants being crowned state free throw champions.
