Pocatello Parks and Recreation’s “Holiday Hoopla” Slated for December 17

Pocatello Holiday Hoopla

The Pocatello Parks and Recreation Department is asking you to come drain a few buckets for the fight against hunger.

Saturday, December 17 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Dick’s Sporting Goods, the department will host its annual “Holiday Hoopla” free throw shooting contest to benefit The Idaho Foodbank. The cost is $3 to take a turn and make as many free throws as possible in one minute with division winners taking home a $50 gift certificate from Dick’s Sporting Goods.  

“You’re not limited to shooting just one round,” said Brian Lowman, Recreation Supervisor. “If you have a bad round, another $3 gets you another chance at the line and it all goes to a good cause.”

Competitors will be grouped in boys and girls categories with four divisions 9 years-old and under, 10 to 11 years-old, and 12 to 13 years-old. Those 14-years-old and older will compete in an open division. In the case of a tie, the shooter with the best free throw percentage will be deemed the winner.

Registration forms will be available at Dick’s Sporting Goods, 1844 Hurley Drive, the day of the event.

For more information, contact the Team Sports office at 234-6235.
