This recreational program is designed to promote basketball enthusiasm as much as basketball skill, fun, physical fitness, friendship and good sportsmanship. Each player will have one minute to shoot from “hotspots” placed on one half of the court. Starting at the center of the half-court line, the player dribbles into shooting range. The contest challenges a
player’s speed, shooting, dribbling, and rebounding ability. Three one minute rounds constitute the duration of play for each player.

The top scorer in each division will advance to the State Competition on Saturday, April 1st from 10:30 – 1:00 pm at Old Saybrook Recreation Center, 308 Main Street in Old Saybrook.

Residents only! Age as of 12/31/16

Return forms by February 17th to avoid late fee!
