So the Red Bank Elks Lodge is inviting the local area youth to our free basketball HoopShoot® contest, a free-throw competition, on Sunday December 28th at 1pm at Saint Anthony’s of Padua, at Bridge and Herbert Streets in Red Bank NJ.

The competition is open to boys and girls in three age categories: 8 to 9, 10 to 11, and 12 to 13 (ages as of April 1, 2015). Scoring is based on each contestant shooting 25 free throws.


The holiday season is approaching quickly, and many families are looking to board their pets while they travel. It’s the perfect time to update vaccinations before holiday travels begin. Call today to schedule an appointment. (732) 291-4400 https://www.atlantichighlandsvet.com

The top-scoring boy and girl will each win a trophy and the opportunity to represent the lodge at the district level competition in January.

Those top scorers then go onto the state and regional competitions, with a chance to make it all the way to the National HoopShoot® contest in April at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts, as guests of the Elks organization. National champions will have their names permanently inscribed in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

The HoopShoot® competition is in it’s 43rd year, and over 2 million boys and girls will compete nationally.

More details can be found at our website, redbankelks.org, along with a link to the event registration page. Pre-registration is not required, but is suggested.

The Red Bank Elks Lodge #233 has been supporting its families and community for over 100 years through community service and charitable programs in the areas of youth activities, drug awareness, special needs children/young adults and veterans affairs.
