Sinking Winning Baskets

Each year since 1993 the Town of Islip hosts a Sharpshooter Basketball Contest. Sponsored by Islip's Department of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs, along with co-sponsors the sharpshooter challenge encourages children in local schools to improve their basketball skills while serving as a reminder to "Just Say No to Drugs". The initial competition takes place during physical education classes where students are given the chance to score as many baskets as possible in one minute. First place finishers in 4th & 5th grade advance to the finals where they compete against other first place finishers throughout the Town of Islip.
