The most balanced BAM Jam team ever created

So, you wanna win BAM Jam? With four players on your team, each player has a chance to fill a role. 

There are a lot of ways to put together your team but here is a balanced approach. Which player are you? Do you know any of these players? Get any four of them and your team is set.


A look inside scheduling and how Tetris is helping

One of the most frequently asked questions we get at BAM Jam is "When will the tournament schedule be out?"

Typically, the BAM Jam schedules will be out the Thursday before the tournament starts. We post it online and separate it by the bracket type and court.

But the next question is usually "How do you create the schedule?"

BAM Jam and Tetris have a lot in common
Scheduling BAM Jam teams is a bit
like playing a game of Tetris
Scheduling is kind of like a big puzzle with moving pieces and limited space and time. 

Think Tetris. 


Who you taking?

There is no team hotter in the NBA than the Golden State Warriors. They are on track to take down the 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls for most wins in the regular season.

So our most recent poll is simple: if you have to win one game, which team are you taking?


Most recent promo video

Here is our latest promo video, aimed at potential players for this spring.

It is compiled of video and photos taken at the 2015 Spring BAM Jam from Capital High School. The music is the instrumental version of Maroon 5's "Moves Like Jagger" with Christina Aguilera.


Who is competing at this spring's BAM Jam?

This post was originally posted on February 4, 2015. But since so many people found it interesting, we've reposted with updates. 

Last year, BAM Jam really dug in to understand our players better. We've taken a look at our brackets from 2011-2014, conducted a large survey, posted some online polls and reached out to talk with some of our BAM Jam players.

Our hope is that by better understanding who our players are, we will be able to do a better job serving your needs. And we intend to keep this going at our next BAM Jam tournament, presented by Treasure Valley Ford Stores, on March 19-20, 2016 at Capital High School in Boise, Idaho.

As we compiled the information, we thought you might be interested in knowing who you are playing against and who you might be watching. We also included some things that you told us we should consider taking a closer look at.
