St. Luke's Know Your Numbers

St. Luke's Men's Health will be back at Fast Eddy's Spring BAM Jam with their "Know Your Numbers" program. The program is a great way to measure your athletic numbers including your vertical jump, broad jump, wing span, height and weight. Their expert medical staff will also measure your blood pressure, body mass index and resting heart rate.

This is a great way to establish a base set of measurements. Or for those that got measured last year it is a great way to check on your progress.

Registration is expected to fill up soon so if you would like to play we highly recommend registering your team ASAP!


Spring BAM Jam promotional videos

Which design direction do you want on this spring's shirt?

Fast Eddy's Spring BAM Jam wants to give you the chance to vote on which direction you would like us to go for this spring's t-shirts.

For the last 5 years, Jason Martinez and The Martinez Method, has designed our shirts for the spring and summer tournaments, including the participant shirts and the champion's shirts.

It isn't easy coming up with new ideas every year but he always comes through.

For this spring, here are the two directions that we can go and we want you to pick. Vote each day through Sunday, March 2 at 5:00 PM Mountain Time. From there we will take the winner and create the final version of this spring's shirt.

Keep in mind that these are just sketches. The final creation will be a crisp two color version laid out on an actual shirt. Click on an image to enlarge.
