is a Jamboree?
A competition involving more than two teams in which each
team plays multiple games and is limited to no more than 3
age divisions of 8 teams each, for a maximum of 24 teams.
Jamborees are sanctioned by the District Commissioner,
District Commissioner Designee and/or District Tournament
Coordinator of the host district. No league or group may
host a jamboree without the prior written permission of the
District Commissioner, District Commissioner Designee or the
District Tournament Coordinator as the District
Commissioner’s designee. Jamborees will comply with Cal
North policies, procedures, rules and regulations. Districts
may establish jamboree policies and procedures that are more
restrictive than those indicated in the Cal North tournament
manual. Jamborees may be held on any weekend. No league or
group hosting a jamboree may charge a team any fees other
than those necessary to pay for costs actually and
reasonably incurred in hosting the jamboree and in no event
shall the fees charged exceed $200.00 per team without the
approval of the District Commissioner, District Commissioner
Designee or District Tournament Coordinator based on written
justification for a fee in excess of $200.00 submitted at
the time the league or group applies for permission to host
a jamboree. Jamborees may not keep standings. Jamborees may
not give awards in any form unless the same award is given
to every participant in the jamboree. Jamborees are to be
operated on a "not for profit" basis. Jamborees are not
included on the Cal North Tournament Calendar. Teams from
outside the host district must receive approval of their
District Commissioner, District Commissioner Designee and/or
