This spring, the Fast Eddy’s BAM Jam will again feature the Jackson & Jackson Insurance 3-point Challenge. Anyone can enter to win and it’s always a lot of fun.

But we wanted to give our loyal readers an edge, something that might help them when they are out there shooting for the title.

Defending 3-point champion Craig Spjute shared a few tips on how he was able to win the challenge at last summer’s BAM Jam as well as the state’s 3-point competition as a senior at Borah High School.

Tip #1 Believe – “You have to think you are the best to be the best. Many may see this as cocky but I see it as confidence.”

Tip #2 Expect Success – “It’s BAM Jam so yes, it’s a big deal…but not a big enough deal to freak out. Just go out there and shoot…but expect to win.”

Tip #3 Don’t Rush! – “You will make more shots if you relax and take an extra half second to gather yourself, as opposed to shooting as many as possible with bad form.”

Tip #4 Love the crowd – “Thrive off them when they cheer! It’s exciting!!”

There you have it. Everything you need to know about winning the competition. But don’t start engraving your name on that trophy just yet. We suspect Craig may be back to defend his title!
