Holy Jam 2019 Will Be Live Streamed

Holy Jam PosterHolyJam 2019 takes place on March 8 – 9 in Tel Aviv, Israel. Thanks to Jakub “Mystiq” Matula, this event will be streamed live here on FrisbeeGuru.

This event takes place the weekend after Frisbeer Cup. I happen to know many people who are making a 2 tournament trip out of these events, which means that HolyJam will be well attended. Possibly more exciting is the fact the jam scene in Israel is growing quickly with many up and coming shredders. This will be a chance for them to test their skills and to witness and learn from the best.

HolyJam will be using the FPA judging committee’s prototype judging system, with Ryan Young at the helm. This will another good opportunity to see that system in action.

With its long history of a relaxed and fun vibe, experimental formats, and huge gym space, this event tends to be one of the largest Freestyle Frisbee events outside of the world championships. Many of the top players make appearances and often teams getting ready for worlds use frisbeer as a place to preview their routines.

This year, Frisbeer Cup will be using the protype judging system from the FPA judges committee.
