KanJam Tournament

GILLAM-GRANT COMMUNITY CENTER

KANJAM TOURNAMENT

09/30/17 *Rain Day 10/07/17

10:00AM – 5:00PM

It’s anyone’s game, but there can only be one champion! Does your team have what it takes?

GILLAM-GRANT WILL BE HOSTING IT’S FIRST ANNUAL KANJAM TOURNAMENT!

One of the great aspects of this tournament is that this is not a simple bracket. The overall field will be broken up into equal divisions. If there are 100 total teams, for example, that would mean 25 teams per division. Teams will get to play Round Rob in style in their assigned bracket. Winners of their bracket will move on to the semi-finals.

There will be prizes and awards given to the top 4 teams! Prizes will be announced closer to the tournament!

Cost: $60 per TEAM. Price includes tournament shirt and lunch ticket. Feel free to bring your own KanJam style drinks!

We will be following the same rules as the KanJam League. Please visit their site at https://www.kanjamleague.com/rules if you need to brush up on the rules of play!

Come out and enjoy a day of fun and good times! Teams must have both members be 16 years and older. Register online for more convenience!
