Young hoop sharpshooters are invited to participate in a free throw contest, sponsored by the county Department of Recreation and Parks, and Our Lady of the Chesapeake and Msgr. Raymond P. Kelly Knights of Columbus councils, at 2 p.m. Jan. 23 in the Chesapeake High School gymnasium.

The contest is open to youths, ages 10 to 14.

"This is the first step for youngsters to compete in the Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Championship," Knights of Columbus spokesman Larry South said. "Our winners will progress to the district contest next month and maybe onto the state level."

No out-of-state travel is required because the cumulative scores in local events are used to select international winners.

"Our goal is to see one of our winners go all the way to state and maybe even win internationally," he said.

The contest is free. All participants will receive awards.

Entry forms will be available on the day of the event. Parents must accompany contestants. Proof of age is required.

Last year, approximately 210,000 youngsters competed in 2,976 local Knights of Columbus competitions all over the world.
