Foul Shooting Competition
One player from each team (selected by their coach) participates. Prior to their first game the selected player shoots 20 foul shots. The player that makes the most foul shots is the winner. In the case of a tie, those players will shoot another 20 foul shots until a winner is determined. 6th grade winners will receive an Outlook 21 Speed Mountain Bike. The 5th Grade winner will receive a trophy and a new basketball.
Special Olympics Donation
A long standing tradition and one of the things that makes The Paper City Classic special is our Knockout Competition for Special Olympics. We welcome all players, parents, and fans to support this wonderful cause by donating $1.00 and participating in a game of Knockout during halftime of every game. The winner of each game of Knockout will receive a tournament T-shirt and all the money collected will be given to the Special Olympics.
Another little thing that makes the Paper City Classic special is the decorating of the gyms for the week of the tournament. We encourage all teams to make posters to hang on the walls behind the player benches during games.
