Attention parents: This Saturday you can bring your kids out for a basketball and soccer shooting contest that could earn your child some money!

The Brick Elks Lodge #2151 is hosting the hoop and soccer shoots for kids ages 5 - 13 in soccer and 8-13 in basketball who live in Brick. And IT IS FREE TO PARTICIPATE!

The event takes place this Saturday, Oct. 21st, at Veterans Memorial Middle School, 105 Hendrickson Ave. in Brick (off Rt. 70 and Van Zile Road.)

The winners of each age level and each sport will move up to the tournaments and onward to the finals. The winner of each champion level will then be awarded scholarship money.

For this event, registration begins at 8:45 am. The basketball shooting will start at 9 am in the main gym, and the soccer shoot will start at 9:30 in the all-purpose room.

For the Soccer Shoot there will be 2 sets of nets, one for kids 7 & under and one for kids 8 & up. (ages as of 1/1/18).

For the Hoop Shoot, it's a free throw tournament for ages 8 - 13 (birth dates as of 4/1/18.)

Scholarships are based on fundraising efforts.

A big thanks to those who volunteer for the Elks youth activities. The Elks do not have paid positions. Elks donate their time, energy, and efforts for the good of the community.

Donna Miller, the Youth Activities Chairperson for Brick Elks Lodge #2151 who is running the Hoop Shoot-Soccer Shoot, is a mom who raised three kids and says that giving back makes her soul feel good. She knows from personal experience that life can be tough at times and we need to find things to make it all a little better.

Donna wants your kids to have fun and just give it a good try, and remember that this may be fun, but so is family, learning, and preparation. So even if you don't win, it's great that you are willing to give it a try!
