New Jersey Elks Youth Sports Tournament 2017
The New Jersey State Elks Association has been sponsoring a Youth Sports Tournament for New Jersey Boys and Girls (ages 13 to 18) for over 25 years. The purpose of the tournament is to promote competition against the best athletes in the state in each individual sport and to promote camaraderie among all competitors. Scholarships of $250 and $500 are awarded to the winners of each sport to be used for the college or trade school they plan to attend.
There is NO cost to either the student / athlete or to the sponsoring schools. All costs are covered by the local Elks Lodges through their Youth Activities Programs.
The New Jersey State Elks Association is proud to once again sponsor their Annual Youth Sports Tournament on Monday, June 27, 2016 (See Attached Flyer and Application). This year's tournament has been changed from a 3 day tournament to a 1 day tournament which will now be held in Central New Jersey. The Awards Presentation Dinner (location to be determined shortly) will follow immediately after the conclusion of tournament and all parents, grandparents, etc. are cordially invited to attend the dinner and presentation ceremony.
