Registration begins at 9:15 and ends at 9:45 a.m. There is no cost to register.
This year, the event will start a new tradition within a tradition, as the Boca Beacon will be co-sponsoring the event with Lee County Parks & Recreation.
“We were asked if we would be interested in co-sponsoring this program as well as the youth fishing tournaments, and we were really excited to participate in this as well,” said Boca Beacon Publisher Dusty Hopkins. “It’s a wonderful community event that always has a good turnout, and it’s nice to see families participating, not just individuals.”
The contest is divided up into age groups: Co-ed 4 and under; co-ed 5 and 6; and separate divisions for males and females for ages 7 to 8, 9 to 10, 11 to 14 and 15 and up (adult).
Prizes will be awarded to the first place winner of each division. The contest will be 15 shots from several locations on the court. The three top competitors in each age division will advance to the final round.
All children must be supervised for this event.
