THE HISTORY OF THE JAMB
Bayou Jamb began in 2006 as an effort to give back to our community through sports, lifetime achievement acknowledgements, family involvement and fun. The event is held every year with the help of over 100 community volunteers. Over $2,000,000 in proceeds have been given back to participating high schools through the Bayou Jamb efforts, and that number continues to grow every year.
MISSION: Our mission is to promote the value of participation in team sports in a wholesome environment for the challenge of competition, the joy of victory, the reality of defeat, the importance of commitment, and the spirit of community and teamwork.
VISION: To provide an event experience like no other that drives economic growth and enhances the student athlete experience of team sports while gaining a strong sense of community.
We relate to all people with fairness, respect, honesty, and trust. We keep commitments, are accountable for our actions and expect the same of others.
We communicate. We share. We are open to each other’s ideas. We will not develop boundaries. We have full cooperation. We encourage participation and innovation. We accept the decision of the group and work together.
We foster a creative environment that encourages new ideas to improve, innovate and expand to be a better organization for the student athlete, school, sponsorship partners and the community.
Our volunteers are our core, and we value each one with highest regards. They are appreciated for their dedication. The well being of our volunteers is the greatest asset we have for the success of this event.
We provide an excellent event experience through commitment and passion that consistently exceeds expectations. The student athlete, school, sponsorship partner is our priority. What is important to our student athlete, school, sponsorship partner is important to us.
