The Connecticut Recreation and Parks Association HotShots Contest is a statewide event. Each player will have one minute to shoot from “hotspots” placed on one half of the court. Starting at the center of half-court, the player dribbles into shooting range. The contest challenges a player’s speed, shooting, dribbling, and rebounding ability. Three one-minute rounds constitute the duration of play for each player. The top scorer in each division will move on to the next level of the contest. The HotShots Contest is a recreational program designed to promote basketball enthusiasm as much as basketball skill, fun, physical fitness, friendship, and good sportsmanship. Regional winners will play at the state championship level.
