For nearly 50 years, the Hoop Shoot has been developing gritty kids. The Elks Hoop Shoot is a basketball free throw program for youth ages eight to 13. On Friday, January 29, Valley View Elementary held their annual Elks Hoop Shoot contest.

Winners from each of the third, fourth and fifth grade classes came together at this event where they shot 25 free throws each in order to name a winner.

In normal years, our local winners would advance to the regional event in Sandpoint. That’s not the case this year, unfortunately.

The winners of the 8/9 year old division were Brydin Weymer and Daisy Williams. For the 10/11 year old division, first place was Alex Jimenez and 2nd place was earned by Grady Atkins.
