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


A guide to getting started

Often, the hardest part about playing in BAM Jam is simply getting started. Here are a few tips to help you get ready for Idaho's biggest tournament this August.
  1. Put Friday and Saturday, August 5-6, 2011 down on your schedule. Obviously to play, you have to be available.
  2. Pick your teammates. As a captain, you get the privilege of picking the players you want to play with. Start thinking about the types of players you want around you. Do you want to win? Do you want to have fun? Do you need a ride to the tournament? Potential teammates are everywhere: at your school, work, church or even a hoops team you are on right now.
  3. Pick your division. The great thing about BAM Jam is there is a division for everyone. Whether you are the ultra competitive player or just trying to get some exercise without pulling your hammy, you can find the level of competition that is right for you. Check out our "Bracketing 101" guide by clicking here
  4. Get registered. You have your team and you know what division you want to play in. Now, make sure you get your team's spot secured so that you can worry about other stretching out that hamstring!
Hopefully this helps you get set for the tourney. Work on that crossover, tune up your shot and get ready for a great weekend of hoops!

Spring BAM Jam registration is open

It's back! Spring BAM Jam will once again take over Taco Bell Arena on Saturday, March 12, 2011. Registration is now open so get your teammates together and get your team registered. <CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION>

BAM Jam gets national attention

In case you missed it, SLAM Magazine was in Boise to cover this summer's tournament. The article and the tournament are getting great reviews.

Check it out for yourself by clicking here or going to

There is also a great video that goes through the tournament, gives some interviews and does a great job of capturing the feel of BAM Jam.

BAM Jam Champions - 2010 Summer

Here are the bracket champions from the 2010 Fast Eddy's Summer BAM JAM. Each bracket champion received champions T-shirts, thanks to Flashpoint Screen Printing (click here to check 'em out).

Overall Men's Elite Champions - STADIA Legends
The STADIA Legends (Chris Allen, Ryan McCarthy, Dan Mcfaul, Wade Joseph) are the first BAM Jam team to repeat as Men's Elite Champions. They won their first title in 2008. There were two men's elite brackets. The two bracket champions then faced off in the Finals for the overall championship.

The finals locked up and STADIA. cruised through their bracket, winning all four of their first games. STADIA, however, took a much different route. Thye lost their first game of the tournament and had to battle their way through the loser's bracket.  But 8 straight wins later they made it to the finals. And after win number 9 they captured the 2010 title.

But can their outdoor success translate to indoors? We'll see next Spring when BAM Jam goes back indoors for the spring version. There is very limited room so if you would like advanced noticed and a chance to get your team in before the general public, send an email to with the subject: Spring BAM Jam Registration to be put on our early registration list.

I missed the registration deadline, now what?

If you wanted to get a team into this year's BAM Jam but missed the normal registration deadline, you may be in luck.  Some of our smaller brackets may have room for another team or two. Our bracketing team starts this weekend building the tournament brackets. In the meantime, here's what you can do to get in.

First, get signed up! The bracket team will finish up by Tuesday so you have to be in by then. Go to, click on play and complete the team registration process. Please note, with late registration comes the standard late registration fee of $25.

Second, look for your verification email immediately after you have signed up. If you don't get it within 10 minutes check your junk or spam folder. If you check your spam and junk folders and don't see it in there, send an email to with your team name and captain and we will check on it for you.

Third, be patient. We will do our best to get you into your bracket of choice if there is room. But this could take a couple days so give us a chance to get it in.

Fourth, check your email again. If we are able to get you in to the tournament you will get an email with your TEAM NUMBER and check in information. If we couldn't get you in we will send you an email letting you know and that we are refunding your entry fee.

Learn when to come off screens, utilize isolation, overcome mismatches and much more. We will also have court monitors there as well so you can get a feel for how the BAM Jam tournament is run.

Players get to learn from:

The most critical items are: team gender, team age and team competition level. These items determine which bracket you are in and once the tournament starts they cannot be changed.

If you have not yet received this email check your spam or junk folder, as they will sometimes end up in there. After you have checked these folders, if they are not there then send an email to with your name and your team's name. We will go in and try to find it from there!

The camp is for boys that are currently in the 5th-8th grades. Players from Washington, Oregon, Utah and Idaho have already registered. This camp is a regional qualifier with the top players in each class receiving an invitation to the prestigious National Phenom Camp in San Diego this summer.

But the camp goes beyond simply providing a platform to showcase your talents. It also integrates skill development, physical training and educational sessions to make every basketball player better. Check out what this parent had to say about it.

"The Junior Phenom Program is one of the best fundamental and showcase programs that my son has attended-anywhere. The coaching staff at the Idaho camp does a fantastic..." click here to read the rest or send the parent an email.

Check out and see what all the talk is about. Spots are starting to fill fast so don't miss your chance to be a part of this special event!


Team Captains! Please read

Just a reminder, if you are the team captain (Player 1 on the registration form) you should receive a team verification email. It is absolutely critical that you review the information in this email and make any corrections necessary.

The most important items: be sure that your team is in the correct age group (youth, high school or adult), gender (male, female or co-ed), team height (N/A for youth, 6'0 and under, 6'0 and over) and division (youth, recreational, competitive or elite).

From there be sure that your team members all meet the requirements of your division (if you are in a high school division all players should be in high school, if you are in a co-ed gender bracket you should have at least one boy or girl, if you are 6'0 and under everyone should be under 6'0, etc.)

This is so important because this is how we bracket all teams. What may seem like a simple typo could affect the teams you play against. We rely on your accuracy to evenly match up teams.

If you see a mistake, simply respond to the email with the corrections. We'll take if from there.

If you have not received a verification email (it should be sent to you within 10 minutes of completing your registration) please send an email to with your team name, captain's name and captain's email address.

Other information that is important: Player's 2-4 email addresses (BAM Jam does all communication through email so this should be accurate) and team t-shirt sizes.

Other notes: if you need to add/delete/change a player you can do so via the "PLAYER CHANGE" form available under the "Play" link on the main page.

The normal registration deadline is March 5. However, we are currently on pace to sell out early so if you are considering getting a team in, you may want to register ASAP. The Fast Eddy's BAM Jam is March 13 at Taco Bell Arena.

Sports Roundtable

BAM Jam was thrilled to be a part of Boise Mayor Dave Bieter's sports industry discussion last week. It was a great meeting with the mayor, Boise State Broncos, Idaho Stampede, Boise Hawks, Idaho Steelheads and the Humanitarian Bowl.

Here is a report from CBS 2News:


40 days and counting down

The Fast Eddy's BAM Jam is only 40 days away! The registration deadline is March 5 or until we run out of space. And with the limited amount of space we have, that is likely to happen.

Get your teams together for the coolest basketball event in March! The NCAA conference tournament games on all TV, the Washington Trust Player's Lounge, the dunk competition and the Jackson and Jackson Insurance 3-point Shootout will make this the place to be March 13!


Fast Eddy's Spring BAM Jam

You probably noticed that we now have a title sponsor for the Spring BAM Jam, Fast Eddy's! Thanks to their partnership, we are now able to promote the Fast Eddy's Spring BAM Jam in all sorts of new channels which is going to really speed up the registration process.

Thanks again to Fast Eddy's for making this spring's BAM Jam a huge success!

You can find Fast Eddy's convenience stores in various locations including on Ustick between Linder and Meridian Roads. The stores have great food, excellent fuel and you can even get your car washed. Fast Eddy's are known for their friendly service and clean stores.

The Fast Eddy's Spring BAM Jam is March 13 at Taco Bell Arena at Boise State University. Teams should register early as space is limited.


Wednesday night at Taco Bell Arena

BAM Jam will be at Taco Bell Arena for the Boise State men's and women's double header. The women take on San Jose State and the men take on Nevada at 8:15 PM. Nevada is scoring over 80 ppg this season with four guys scoring in double digits. They also have former CSI player Joey Shaw on their roster.
