How many players should I have on our roster?
You need to have 4-5 players on your team to register!
Do we win anything if we win?
Of course! Our prize bags are one of the best parts – a lot of swag from our sponsors!
What do we wear?
Your team can come up with your own uniform – as long as you are all wearing the same color. Be creative!
What time do I have show up at [Location TBA for 2017]?
TBA for 2017.
Can I register as an individual?
You can register as an individual (please note it on the registration form). We will do our best to place you on a team; unfortunately, we cannot guarantee it!
When do we get our game schedule?
Captains will receive their game schedules via email on Saturday, November 4, at 12 pm.
What are your 3-on-3 rules?
Why, that’s a great question. Here it is: Awesome Jam Rules.
Why aren’t there referees?
Basketball Education in Action firmly believes in players respecting the spirit of the game. We ask that our athletes always honor the values of fair play, sportsmanship, and integrity.
Will I be able to change my roster before the tournament starts?
Yes. Please send updates to your roster to Sara Thomas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Do all team members have to be from the same school?
No. While some high school coaches may encourage you to play with your teammates, you can play with anyone you want!
Can I play on more than one team?
Nope! You won’t have time.
Is there only one high school division?
Yes. However, in the case that we have enough teams registered, we will break it into a JV and V division.
Is there an admissions cost for fans?
Nope! The more the merrier. Bring your own cheering squad!
Why are you hosting this event?
Our goal is to foster competition and community among girls and women basketball players in the Puget Sound. Basketball Education in Action firmly believes in role modeling and mentorship. This is a great opportunity to use the game we love to meet accomplished athletes and women. This event will have booths and sponsors by women entrepreneurs and leaders (and former basketball players) and organizations, not only to promote their work, but for the girls to see the opportunities open to them through skills developed from our chosen sport.
Where does the money go?
It is the Awesome 3-on-3 Jam’s mission that funds raised at our event will go right back to our girls’ and women’s basketball community in the Puget Sound. Each year, we support a local cause for a person or organization in our community. In 2016, we raised over $1000 for Erika Hornyak Cliett and her family, as well as Roosevelt and North Kitsap High School Girls’ Basketball Booster Club.
This year, we are raising money for need-based scholarships for girls to attend the Team Awesome Basketball Leadership Academy (TABLA). At TABLA, we foster the power of mentorship and community to inspire change. We connect athletic instruction on the court with leadership-building and social justice activities in the classroom. Our programs empower our girls to find confidence in their own voice, inspire those around them, work effectively in a team, and take an active role in their communities. Our curriculum ensures that TABLA athletes develop the skills not only to take their games to the next level and to lead their teams on the court, but to become advocates for gender equality in sports and beyond. We strive to create a powerful and positive change in our world, and we invest our time and energy into bringing out the best in our girls!
What if I don’t have the money to play?
BEA believes that no one should have to miss out on a sporting opportunity due to financial obstacles. Please contact Bea at email@example.com for scholarships, raised with many thanks to our generous community!
I’d like to host a booth or be a sponsor too! Is it too late?
Not even a little bit. Email Bea at firstname.lastname@example.org.
