Coaches vs. Cancer Shoot-A-Thon

 Hello Laker families,


It is that time of year again where we are going to be participating in our annual Shoot-A-Thon benefitting Coaches vs. Cancer and the Skaneateles Basketball Program.  As a basketball family we feel that it is important to not only raise money for the betterment of our program, but to also support the Coaches vs. Cancer organization and the many families that cancer touches.  Over the past five years, the Shoot-A-Thon has allowed us to make generous donations to Coaches vs. Cancer. The Shoot-A-Thon has also been the main FUNdraiser that we have used to generate money for the basketball program.   The Shoot-A-Thon allows us to offset the costs of participating in games and tournaments at all levels of our program. This has been extremely important to the development of Laker basketball.


This year’s Shoot-A-Thon will be held on Sunday, December 6th.


How it Works…

Each player will collect pledges prior to Sunday, December 6th. 

On December 6th each player will shoot 200 free throws.

Donation amounts will be determined by multiplying the amount of the pledge times the number of free throws made.

Players will collect donations and turn them in by Monday, December 14th. 


Our target goal for each player is to raise $150.00, which works out to having fifteen people donate ten dollars a piece or ten people donating fifteen dollars a piece.  The better each player shoots the easier it is to get to their $150.00 goal!  Donors are also allowed to make straight donations if they wish as well.


In years past, some players have placed too much of the burden of raising this money on their parents.  While we know our players appreciate their parents support we would really like to see the players be responsible for this very important FUNdraising opportunity that allows them to not only support their basketball program, but to help make a difference in the lives of others.


Thank you in advance for your support of the Skaneateles Basketball program and the Coaches vs. Cancer organization.
