Each child gets 15 throws. The child with the most baskets wins. If there is a tie, then each child gets 5 throws and the child with the most baskets wins. There are several levels, Council, District and State.
This is a wholesome activity that reaches out to the youth in the community for some healthy, team building, fun and friendly competition. It helps build social skills and teaches the youth how to respect each other, the refs and the adults.
