The 2018 West Coast Jamboree will be Dec. 27, 28 & 29 in the East Bay area of the San Francisco Bay Area. We will accept a maximum of 160 teams in eight-team brackets, which will be divided into two categories: Elite ($525) and Premier ($450). The Elite brackets will be for teams looking for the highest level of competition, and will have three officials for each game. Due to the extra official, the Elite bracket entry fee is $75 extra.
All participating teams that stay overnight must stay in a Host Hotel. Please use the Host Hotel tab to reserve your rooms. Due to the contributions from our Host Hotels, we are able to offer our annual West Coast Jamboree scholarships, which resulted in $7,500 in awards in 2016.
For questions and/or assistance with Host Hotels, contact Harold Abend (email@example.com).
Teams that are flying in to the Bay Area must be aware that they cannot schedule a flight out on the last day of the event. The last game could start as late as 8 p.m., making it impossible to get to the airport that night. Departing flights must be scheduled for the day after the tournament ends.
Teams unable to play at scheduled times -- especially on the last day -- are liable for a minimum of $150 in additional fees. In addition, reports may be sent to participating school administration, state association and National Federation of High Schools.
Only 160 teams will be accepted into the Jamboree, so please fill out and submit the application as soon as possible. If you do not hear back from Jamboree staff within a week, please contact Clay Kallam at firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure your registration was recorded.
