JAMESTOWN – The tradition of outdoor basketball will return for the 16th straight year in downtown Jamestown when The Resource Center presents the Street JAM three-on-three tournament this weekend.
Street JAM will take place on West Third Street, between Main and Monroe streets. That section of the city has been the site of the three-on-three tournament on the first weekend in June the past five years.
The annual three-on-three basketball tournament has become a staple in the Jamestown area since the first tournament was held in 1997.
The Jamestown Savings Bank Arena will serve as the focal point for the tournament. Player check-in will take place in the arena today and tomorrow, and plans call for a number of special events connected with the tournament to be held in the arena that weekend.
Money raised from Street JAM will assist people with disabilities and their families in Chautauqua County.
