Do you have plans in late April? If not, you could. The Pittsburgh Jam Fest is just around the corner, and it’s sure to be tons of fun, especially for basketball lovers.
Just what is the Jam Fest? It’s not actually about “jam”, so don’t come hungry. It’s an event that puts tons of basketball team members together in one place. Every year for the Jam Fest, coaches and players from colleges all over the AAU circuit meet in Pittsburgh to play against each other. Thanks to all of the space available in the David L. Lawrence Convention center, there are over thirty courts at this event.
Last year, more than 400 teams and 225 coaches attended the event. Imagine what it will look like this year! It will be easier than ever for teams to participate in these events, because Jam Fest is now a “Stay & Play” event. The partnership between Hoop Group and several Pittsburgh hotels means that teams will get lower rates and discounts on everything local.
If you’re in attendance, then you won’t be the only one. ESPN, Scout.com, CBS Sports, SLAM Magazine, and more media groups will all be there.
So make your plans now for April 28th– 30th to catch these awesome teams compete.
