Hopkins Girls Basketball Summer 10,000 Shot Challenge

You can't become a better shooter without taking shots.  HGBA is once again challenging all players to put up 10,000 shots over the summer.  This contest is open to all Hopkins girls players from grades 3-8 (based on Fall 2021 school year).  Every girl who completes the challenge will be recognized on the court at a Hopkins High Schol Girls basketball game and 1 challenge completer will be randomly selected to win an amazing prize!
