It's back--officially--and lovers of basketball all over the Treasure Valley are counting down the days until BAM Jam is happening under the heat of the summer sun once again.

When you think of summer in the Treasure Valley, there are few things more iconic than Boise Music Festival, floating the river, eating an ice cream potato...and BAM Jam. We have so many memories of running around downtown each summer watching friends, family, and competitions take place across a countless number of basketball hoops lining the streets of downtown Boise.

This year--it's going to look a little different.

Much like last summer, Indian Creek Plaza absolutely LOVED hosting BAM Jam and alas the announcement from event organizers this afternoon as confirmed: it's back to Caldwell!  Indian Creek Plaza is the perfect place to gather for some basketball and with so many surrounding businesses and shopping options, there's sure to be something for everyone.

Here's what is even more exciting: REGISTRATION IS OPEN NOW!

The event will be taking place at Indian Creek Plaza on August 5th through the 7th. Here are some details that you might need:

  • Friday games do not begin until 5:00 PM. All games on Sunday should be done by around 3:00 PM
  • There IS a co-ed division for adults meaning you can play with ALL of your friends on a team!
  • There is an OPEN division for the top adult teams
  • Teams can have up to 5 players
  • Each court will have a paid official to call fouls
  • Every player receives a participant t-shirt (and we low-key are obsessed with the design this year)

Boise State's Most Underappreciated Star

Boise State seems to mean "football" for most, right? On a national stage, after all, it's the blue turf and the success that the Broncos have had on it that made the university a household name. What happens on the hardwood, however, is far from appreciated at the level that it should be. Leon Rice came to Boise State as a blessing from one of the most powerful basketball programs in the nation: Gonzaga University. Now, the winningest basketball coach in the history of the school seems to take immediate heat if the Broncos aren't in the Final Four. Spoiled by wins on the football field, fans seem to expect the same of the basketball program but when the investment in basketball is so much less than football--can you really have these types of expectations!?
