The Salvation Army Kroc Center Boston will be a regional host site for the national NBA FIT / WNBA FIT Dribble, Dish & Swish basketball skills competition on November 4. The skills and speed obstacle course – which will have kids dribbling, passing and shooting in a timed accuracy competition – is sponsored by the NBA and WNBA and presented by Pepperidge Farm. The contest is FREE and open to children ages 7-12 years old, who will compete in three age groups (7-8, 9-10 and 11-12).

Some of the female and male winners in each group may then be eligible to move on to compete in the Regional Competition at the Celtics practice space in Waltham, Mass. Top score-getters from that contest will be eligible to battle it out with the best youth players in the U.S. at the Dribble, Dish & Swish National Finals in Orlando, Florida in February, 2012.
