Athletic Director / Coaches
Hoosier Basketball Academy is organizing a 2016 Indiana Free Throw Championship for all student-athletes in Indiana Boys and Girls grades 3-12. This will give your student-athletes an opportunity to not only showcase their shooting ability and a chance to be recognized as one of the best shooters in Indiana, but to also provide an opportunity for you to financially support your school’s athletic program and raise a significant amount of money with little effort.
As you know, running an athletic program can be costly. Hoosier Basketball Academy will provide everything needed for your student-athlete to raise funds in support of their respective school’s athletic program while organizing a true State-Wide Free Throw Championship for them to compete against other participants from all 92 counties.
How it works… Student-athletes reach out to family and friends to sponsor them for the State Free Throw Championship. Each student-athlete will be given a folder with everything they will need to be successful. Each member of the program will shoot 50 free throws and the coach will sign as a witness. They can be shot all at once, 10 each practice or whatever works best for each coach. Top shooters from each grade will advance and compete against the top shooters from within your current basketball conference. From there, your student-athletes could advance to the State Finals to compete against the best shooters in the state and bring home the Indiana Free Throw Championship trophy back to your school. Shooters that advance to the State Championship will be recognized and given the opportunity to represent their school during halftime at an Indiana Pacers Game. Awards will also be given to the best shooter from each school and student-athletes that raise the most money will also receive great prizes.
As the official sponsor, Hoosier Basketball Academy will put together all the folders along with all the forms needed to participate. Coaches will just need to hand them out at practice so kids can seek sponsorship from friends and family, sign as a witness and collect them on a specified date. This is a great opportunity for you to raise $1,000’s in just 3 weeks and give your student/athletes a chance to compete against some of the best shooters in the state.
I look forward to working with you and making this a great success.
