As of January 6, the Charleston January Jam WILL be held. At this time, there is no threat of inclement weather in Charleston. Any changes will be sent to Club Directors via email and posted on this site.

Palmetto Region Inclement Weather Policy:

For bad weather that strikes one to two days before the tournament, the tournament WILL BE HELD unless teams are otherwise notified (canceled tournament information will be on the HOST and/or region web page and an attempt will be made via email to notify all teams).

Considerations to cancel will be made based on weather at the location of the facilities.  Refunds will not be provided because weather is bad from where team is coming from.  We try to make decisions by 3pm day before event begins.

    • Admission prices are $15 for two days or $10 for a single-day pass for adults. Your club director should have received an email today with pre-order information!
