About the Tournament

Junkanoo Jam is the premier early-season destination tournaments for women’s basketball. Junkanoo Jam attracts hundreds of tourists to the Bahamas each year while immersing participating fans and teams in the culture and travel experience that has made the Bahamas one of the premier destinations in the Caribbean. The Grand Lucayan Beach & Golf Resort is the tournament host hotel. The resort features 7.5 acres of white sand beach, 3 large pools, casino, fitness center, 2 golf courses, a full-size outdoor basketball court, tennis, 14 restaurants, and an attached shopping village with over 70 stores, restaurants, and straw market. Water sports include jet skis, sailboats, kayaks, and parasailing.

 

Since the tournament’s inception in 2002, many of the nation’s finest women’s programs have converged on Grand Bahama Island to test their skills and enjoy some fun in the sun. 2015 marks our 14th annual event in Freeport and the competition will again deem Junkanoo Jam one of the top tournaments in the nation. Each participating program will play 2 non-conference games, dine and socialize beside the ocean for the popular Thanksgiving banquet, and be given the chance to jet-ski, swim with dolphins, snorkel, and more!
