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