The Kids

Show us your best shots. 

Throughout the month of March, Boys & Girls Clubs facilities in the Capital Area will host our Club Madness contest. Everyone gets ten shots! Participants can shoot at a Club location during normal hours: 9:00 am - 2:00 pm, Mon-Fri, (or call to schedule an evening session), or anywhere you find a basketball hoop. 

This is your chance to ask one or more of your friends to donate to BGCCA for every 3-point basket
(or free throw) you make out of ten. Then, you can challenge them to do better!

Schedule a stop
at one of our Clubhouses and we'll provide the balls and basket. See our complete FAQ below. 


See all submitted challenge videos below!



Club Madness donations may be made via our secure online platform.

Sign up to particpate.

Club Madness runs from Friday, March 1st through Sunday, the 31st. Winners and prizes will be announced on Friday, April 5th!

Ask your friends to donate any amount: $10, $25, $50 or more per basket. Talk with your friends first to make sure they are cool with playing. All donations, big and small, will have a huge impact.

Participants can shoot at a Clubhouse location (9:00 am - 2:00 pm, Mon-Fri), or anywhere you can find a basketball hoop. Evening sessions may be scheduled ahead of time. We recommend bringing a friend to capture the video but you may also set the phone somewhere stationery to video your shots. 

We need to clearly see every shot in the basket in one continuous video to ensure the count. No clips!

When posting to social media Use the hashtag #ClubMadness and/or tag us at @BGCCapitalArea
