WANT TO TEST YOUR FREE THROW SKILLS?
When we play basketball, we play as a team. Though shoot free throws individually, we have a whole team behind us ready to make a block, grab a rebound, and cheer us on. On June 1, 2019, ASAS Philadelphia & Camden will host our 2nd annual All-Star Hoop-a-Thon at the historical Palestra at the University of Pennsylvania from 10am-12:30pm. Help Philadelphia & Camden All-Star students take a shot for success by participating in our Free Throw Challenge and raising at least $125 per person ($500 as a team). For a $25, you can register as an individual to join a team of 4 to participate in the Hoop-a-Thon. Your registration will be included in your $125 fundraising commitment. Participants will receive a t-shirt and can participate in the free-throw contest and other activities (including food, games, music, and more!). All funds raised will expand ASAS’ programs and services for Title 1 students in our region.

FREE THROW CONTEST
The Free Throw Contest is made up of teams of four. Each team has a certain amount of time to make as many baskets as possible, before the buzzer goes off. The contest works on the process of elimination—the winners of each round move up to the next round, until one team is declared the Free Throw Champions!
CORPORATE/COMMUNITY TEAMS OF 4
Registration is $25 with a minimum $500 team fundraising commitment (approx.. $125 per person)
Our Free Throw Challenge will allow you to play as a team (up to 4 members) to shoot free throws, bracket-style, until only one team remains. Please note that each team member must register to play.
