The HotShots Contest is a fun, simple, state-wide basketball shooting contest for boys and girls ages 9 - 15. Each player will have three, one-minute rounds to shoot from "hotspots" placed on the court.  Prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age group at the state competition.

Please note the following change in scoring for the HotSpot Bonus: In each one minute round, 5 bonus points are awarded if a player attempts a shot from all 5 hotspots.  An additional 10 points are awarded each round if a player attempts a second shot from all 5 hotspots.  Shots can be made in any sequence.
