UA Cossatot has announced that the college’s men’s and women’s basketball team will be conducting a Shoot-A-Thon on Monday, Sept. 23, at the UA Cossatot Bank of Lockesburg Gymnasium. This event will be an opportunity for the players to raise funds for the men’s and women’s basketball programs, travel gear and bag expenses.

The Shoot-A-Thon allows sponsors the chance to support UA Cossatot’s basketball program and student-athletes. Sponsors can give money in two ways: 1) sponsor a player for an amount per free throws made or 2) provide a flat donation.

Players are planning to shoot 100 free throws. The sponsor’s tax-deductible pledge will be the amount the sponsor checks on their form, multiplied by the number of free throws the player makes out of 100 free throws attempted.

If one chooses to sponsor a player per free throw, sponsors can mail the completed Shoot-A-Thon form to Coach Brad Phillips, Colt’s Basketball, University of Arkansas Cossatot, 183 College Drive, De Queen, Arkansas 71832. Completed forms can also be scanned and e-mailed to

After the Shoot-A-Thon, Phillips will let you know the results of the player and the amount of your pledge. 

Sponsors can send money before the event if they choose to give a flat donation. For donations, please make checks payable to the UA Cossatot Foundation. 

Sponsor Forms can be picked up at the front desk of any UA Cossatot Campus, or downloaded at
