Youth Hoop Shoot

In December of 2017 our Lodge held its 12th annual Holiday Basketball Clinic & Hoop Shoot for local youth. With the assistance of the New Hyde Park Memorial Boys and Girls Basketball teams, students from local elementary schools participated in basketball drills and competed in the Elks National Hoop Shoot Competition. The Elks National “Hoop Shoot” Free Throw Program is America’s largest non-commercial sports program.  It offers kids ages 8 – 13 regardless of race, color, or creed an opportunity for character and skill development, and healthy spirited athletic competition. Special thanks to Lodge Sponsor Donald Rood who is our Youth Activities Chairman for arranging this event.
