Head Coach Tournament
Assistant Coach Tournament

OBJECTIVE: Help to create more awareness for the growing problem of Heart Disease. CollegeInsider.com and the Skip Prosser Foundation are working with the American Heart Association to further promote "Shots from the Heart" and the educational aspects of heart disease.

TOURNAMENTS: There will be two 64-coach fields (one for head coaches and one for assistant coaches). Participating coaches will compete in a free throw shooting contest.

FORMAT: Starting in November coaches would compete against one another with winners advancing to the next round. To make the process simple, coaches would not have to actually compete against each other on the same court. Each coach would have to shoot 25 free throws at his convenience. A member of the athletic department would tally the results and the coach with the most points would advance. There will be a tournament for both head coaches and assistant coaches.

SHOOTING: Participating coaches will have a 2-week window to attempt their free throws.

SCORING: In an effort to avoid ties, the following scoring system will be used:

- Shots 1-10 are worth 1 point
- Shots 11-15 are worth 2 points
- Shots 16-20 are worth 3 points
- Shots 21-24 are worth 4 points
- Shot 25 is worth 5 points


- First tie breaker: Most consecutive shots converted without a miss at any time during the 25 free throw attempts.
- Second tie breaker: Bonus basketballs. If there is still a tie shots 5, 10 and 15 will count as double points.
- Third tie breaker: In the event that the two competitors are still tied there will be a shoot off.

OFFICIAL RESULTS: A member of the basketball staff or athletic department staff will be responsible for keeping track of all attempted shots.

SCHEDULE: Each round of the competition will take place over the course of a two-week window. This will provide a lot of flexibility for participating coaches.

First Round: January
Second Round: February
Round of 16: February
Round of 8: March
National Semi-Finals: March
Free Throw Final: April

CHAMPIONS: The Free Throw Champions would be recognized as part of the 2013 CollegeInsider.com Awards Banquet in Atlanta, site of the 2013 Men's NCAA Basketball Championship.

PROMOTION: During home games we may ask participating schools to read Public Service Announcements, to promote Shots from the Heart and the Skip Prosser Foundation. Schools are NOT required to comply but we would hope in the interest of the event that it would not be a problem.
