The BAM Jam staff will frequently update the blog with important news and developments as the event approaches. So make sure to check back!


Brackets / Schedule

Brackets are expected to be out the evening of Wednesday, August 5. These will include your team's schedule. Be sure to check back then with a link to the page that will have all of the 2009 BAM Jam brackets.


Youth Center Court

We are so excited to announce that this year, BAM Jam will feature a youth center court! This court will be set up similar to the Idaho Trust Bank Center Court except it is all for the youth teams. If you are a high school team and want to show that you are the best AND want to do it just like the adult teams, sign up to play in the high school elite divisions. Games have officials and the court is full size with the best basket you will find.

But, you have to get your team registered by July 31 to guarantee your spot in this year's BAM Jam.
