Watch this space for news about this year’s program

2021 Minnesota State Free Throw Tournament (last year)

There was not any district, regional or state free throw contests last year due to the coronavirus and our need to be safe and responsible.

We did leave it up to the councils if they wanted to hold a council contest and they were able to do so while following state, local, and parish or school rules!

We also suggested the following:
1. No audience or any in the gym except the competitors and the minimum number of knights required to run the competition. (This should include two brother Knights who are compliant with the Knights Safe Environment standards)
2. All except the competitors should wear gloves (plastic such as used for food prep would be fine) and masks.
3. Competitors should wear masks except while shooting.
4. Competitors helping with ball return should also wear gloves.
5. Balls should be thoroughly cleaned with sanitizing wipes before the competition and after each competitor has completed his “round”.
6. Above rules also apply to any “warm up” time.

International Winner for 2019

St. Mary’s School sixth-grader Connor Lanoue proudly displays the trophy he earned as the Knights of Columbus International Free Throw Champion for 2018-19. Lanoue won at the council, district, regional and state levels. He made 93% of his shots at all levels; his totals were added together and put in with those from other competitors, and he came out the winner. Lanoue is pictured with Minnesota Knights of Columbus State Deputy Mark Peters (left) and Roger Coudron, Knights of Columbus District Deputy No. 20.
