On behalf of the Chelsey Ebert Ferndale JAM committee and the Ferndale Girls Basketball Association, we welcome everyone to the 17th Annual tournament. We thank everyone for both their participation and patience as you wait for schedules to be released. This year, we have a record 102 teams playing and with that comes many special requests and coaches who coach multiple teams, so navigating through 224 games took a little extra time.
We assume for various reasons that the schedule may adjust. We know all the teams will bring mistakes to our attention which is great. At this point, please don’t send in specific requests for changes as it has a long multiplying affect.

In addition, as a qualifier for the Washington State Middle School Championship, we will be placing some extra teams this year, so we needed to add some games, specifically to 5th silver, 6th silver and 7th silver where they are taking the top 3 and needed a loser game from the semifinals. 8th silver will send 4 this year. All other ages two.
OUTSTANDING PLAYER AWARDS
The Outstanding Team Player award will be awarded to one player on each tam during EVERY pool game. Please check your team packet for specific information on this award. The one rule on this is the same player cannot win in multiple pool games. You will be provided with the award at your pool game site.
T-SHIRTS & HOODIES
As we do every year, t-shirts and hoodies will be offered for sale at Ferndale High School. All players will be on a list at the t-shirt booth (no coupons this year). Players can take a free white tournament shirt or take $10 off a hoody purchase or they can take the t-shirt and buy the hoodie at normal price. We do not have access to Ferndale High School Friday night, so they are not available the first night. Anyone who pre-ordered can pick them up Saturday or Sunday.
We will again have the Grants Burgers food truck at Ferndale High School from approximately 10am – 7pm Saturday and Sunday.
Other locations may have some limited concessions and a couple of schools will have their booster club running their concession stands.
Please also seek out some local Ferndale Food during your breaks. Some places we suggest you try out are:
- Coconut Kenny’s (1710 Labounty Dr. #1 Ferndale, WA 98248)
- Barb’s Pies and Pastries (the best donuts in town! 5679 3rd Ave. Ferndale. Open Friday and Saturday).
