Trick Shot Challenge

Create and submit your own trick shot video for your chance to win our grand prize! Video submissions will be accepted June 1st – 30th. You can submit your video HERE. Campus Rec Professional & Intramural Staff will choose the top 32 videos to be entered into our final bracket. During the month of July, the top videos will go head-to-head in a vote on Illinois Campus Recreation’s Instagram Story. The winner of each match up will advance to the next round for a chance to win! A grand prize winner will be crowned on July 31st!

Creativity is key! Use your imagination… Nothing is off limits? Want to throw a basketball over the house? No problem. Kicking a pencil into a soda can? Yep, that works too. Rolling a grape down a slide into your little brother’s mouth? Definitely counts. Remember, the most votes each round will advance so make a shot for the people!

Be sure to follow the guidelines below when creating your video. Any video submission without the following will be omitted.


  1. All current ARC members (current students and paying faculty/staff) are eligible for this competition.
  2. Be safe! Practice social distancing to protect yourself and others. Here are the CDC Guidelines on how to keep yourself safe from COVID-19.
  3. Before your shot, you must say “Go Illini!” Any submission without the shooter saying this key phrase will not qualify.
  4. Follow Illinois Campus Recreation on Instagram HERE. We’ll tag you when your video is matched up against another!
  5. The video must be less than 30 seconds long and recorded vertically. Please do not record with your phone sideways, horizontal, or “hamburger” style.
