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.

  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 things…like 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!
